This has been the first move in a long time that I don't feel super stressed out from moving my stuff. I did a decent job of not accumulating too much stuff over the past year. I also am getting rid of stuff by posting it in my town's Facebook "For Sale" group. On quite a few things, I'm listing it for free because I just want to get rid of it. (If you want to get rid of something quick, just list it as "FREE" and it will fly out the door!)
I may have mentioned this before, but a lot of my desire to be a minimalist came from moving out from my dorm rooms in college. I was embarrassed at how much stuff I had, and stressed on trying to figure out how to move all of it. I've been working on changing ever since. I don't know if I'll ever be a super minimalist, but I have learned I should sort through my things more frequently to keep things from accumulating in my house/apartment. I also need to evaluate the waste stream more often on things I buy/obtain. I need look at the waste stream from a minimalist and conservationist point of view.
I should have the bulk of my stuff removed from my house tomorrow. From that point, I will need to continue to sort through my things, do inventories, donate, and toss things in the garbage. My next immediate inventories will be for my clothing since I should have most of it in my apartment after this weekend. I am looking forward to getting these clothing inventories done because it's been far too long since I've sorted through my clothes. I think this act alone will reduce a lot of the stuff-induced anxiety I have.
I will end with acknowledging how fortunate I am to have a house and excess clothing.
