You never realize how much stuff you have until you have to move it all. As I was putting my apartment back together this weekend I came to the conclusion that I have so much stuff… So many things that I do not need. When I start to purge I catch myself thinking “but what if I need this in the future” and that line typically keeps me from throwing things out. I am the type of person who is always prepared… you have a stomach ache? Here are some tums. A friend has to crash at my apartment for the night? Here are extra pillows, blankets, and an air mattress. When in reality i do not need all of these things. My goal for this summer is to go through the extra drawers and closets and clear out the things that i do not need. There’s no reason for it.
