Clutter

I know I have been very absent and I’m not going to address that right now.  I just want to talk about “stuff”.  Do you have it?  Lately I’ve been watching a lot of YouTubers who downsized to living in a Sprinter Van.  They sold or gave away nearly everything.  I admire that.  I thought I was ready to do something like that… and one day I do hope to be.

We recently moved from 10 acres, 3 outbuildings and a 1700sf house to a single garage and a 1200sf house.  We are getting ready to downsize again to a single garage and a 700sf condo.  I guess it is happening in stages.  But as we pack it is a bit overwhelming to look at all the stuff that owns us.  We still need to declutter! We have kitchen gadgets, one set of dishes plus 6 plates, a trunk and several boxes of memorabilia, only one bookcase of books, an upper coat-closet worth of games, 2 sets of sheets for each bed, etc.  I really thought we were living pretty simply.  But when I think about even living in an RV, I just don’t know how we would get rid of everything… Furniture, no problem.  I’m not attached.  Photos?  Old letters?  Not so much.  At least not yet.

Anyone else have these 1st world problems?  What helps you get rid of the clutter?  Comment below!
