I have definitely reduced how much "stuff" I own. My mind shift is looking at everything in my house as inventory. It's taking up valuable real estate, and it needs to have a purpose. Just saw a video that said, if you're not sure if you should keep something, would you put the effort into cleaning it if it was covered in red wine? So clever. I say less inventory, less work, more time to do things that are important, necessary or fun. Bottom line, more freedom!
Shari, Love Marie Kondo! I think the streamlining eventually becomes ongoing maintenance. One in, one out. I look at the new item as an "upgrade." But, I'm with you, still clearing out. Enjoying the process. Christine
