There is a book about de-cluttering and tidying up. I think it’s called “The life changing magic of tidying up” and then there is Dave Ramsey who talks about selling all of the un-necessary stuff you have accumulated in order to pay off debts faster. All in all, the best of the best suggest that you must give up, in order to gain.
Heading into 2018 makes me give these ideas serious consideration. In 2017, I bought an apple watch and while it definitely made keeping in touch with people much easier, I started to worry about harmful EMF waves. Anyways, that’s not really important, what is however, is the fact, that I really don’t think I want to keep it and as such I am going to sell it on Ebay. The thought of selling something on Ebay gives me anxiety, but the freedom of not being tied down to this watch is kind of exciting. Unfortunately, I can’t get back everything that I paid, but I something is better than nothing.
I also have a beach cruiser bike, that an ex bought for me, that I really don’t need. It was a great gift when I lived at the beach, but now that I live in the frozen tundra, it’s quite superfluous. It has sat in a garage for the past 2 years, becoming a great dust collector. Time for it to go. Along with the bike carrier fit for the SUV I no longer own.
While all of this won’t add up to much, I think I will find the magic in tidying up. So with that, I encourage you to find what you don’t need and consider selling it or giving it away.
After I muster up the courage to actually rid myself of these belongings, I will update this post.
