More and Less
As I decide what will go in our boxes I am trying to focus on the things that we need, that we use all the time, and that we thoroughly enjoy. I know there will be a few things that don't fit this criteria that I decide to pack anyway. I am already pretty conscious about what I chose to fill my home with but it is surprising how easy it is to get attached to things and how easy it is to confuse the things you own with part of who you are. I am amazed at how freeing it is to let many of these things go.
We are probably not headed toward extreme minimalism but I am glad that moving is giving us an opportunity to reassess the things we have and to lighten our load. I have also realized that I can do this on my own terms. I can let go of things when I am ready. I don't have to count my to count my things or get rid of anything that I don't want to though I am inspired by other people who chose to live with less. I am excited to have a fresh start with our new apartment.
P.S. I am hoping to pack less of my inventory. If you see something you need or thoroughly enjoy (or whatever) from Seedling Design, I am offering 25% off through August 25. More info here.
