I have been living simply (sometimes better than others) for several years now. I have always HATED how much *STUFF* we have...and I know that we actually have a lot LESS than others!
Totally true: A friend came by with her kids to play. She commented how my kids actually have a decent (Read: Not too crazy) amount of toys and that her kids have way too many.
But...at the same time, I just feel so pulled down by all our STUFF. Over the past 2 years, we've gone from 1400 sq feet to 2100. We have no attic. No basement. I live in AZ, so you can't leave anything you like in the garage (or in the back) because IT. WILL. MELT.
I am ALWAYS bringing things to the resale shop to donate. Always tossing...and yet...oh my gosh, we still have SO MUCH STUFF. And just now...I went into my closet and just felt STUCK. I decluttered a bit more...but there's still so much.
To make matters worse...I have two part-time Etsy hobbies. One is vintage and the other is selling reshaped crayons. The vintage stuff does take up a lot of space, and that's AFTER I pared down my inventory. (And really, compared to most Etsy people...I don't have too much!)
Do you ever just feel stuck? Feel like you're always decluttering and never getting anywhere? How do you get past it????
