Do you see that box above? That's one of several boxes I go through every time I declutter. In fact, I just decluttered it again the other day.
While I was doing so I had an epiphany of sorts. What if I got rid of the entire thing? I would never have to come back to it and try to find one or two more things to get rid of.
You see, the box is filled with good things...useful things....resources I might use someday. The problem is, I don't actually use them. I just seem to keep them in this box, and every once in a while try to declutter them.
So what if I got rid of this box (and others like it) all together?
It reminds me of what Joshua Becker once said..."don't just declutter, de-own."
Yes...I might need something from one of these boxes again someday, but it's all replaceable. I'm much rather have the freedom I will gain from not owning this stuff anymore.
It's time to live more lightly.
