Like a lot of people in America, I've become overwhelmed with the clutter around me. The "stuff" I've accumulated over the last 45 years has become a burden, and I'm looking to get rid of some of it and simplify my life.
Tee-shirts are a good example. I have a lot of them, and most commemorate something I did or a place I went, so I'm reluctant to ditch them. I was watching YouTube videos on tiny houses last weekend, however, when I heard Andrew Morrison of Tinyhousebuild.com say something that made sense:
"I don't need 45 tee-shirts. I just need to have enough tee-shirts to be comfortable with," Morrison said. "It feels better to have the space than it does to have the extra tee-shirts."
I'd like to build a house like the one in the video, but I don't think I'll have time to start tomorrow. I will definitely make a point of getting rid of some tee-shirts though!
