How long could you go?
While I don't feel I am making much progress on the culling and organizing side of things...too busy playing in the dirt, I have begun to notice a change in my thoughts as it relates to acquiring more "stuff". I'm not very interested in shopping! I know for those of you that dread shopping you are simply shrugging your shoulders. I love to shop...no, more, I love to look. It's those darned possibilities again. Still, it is hard to look alot without bringing something home. Recently I have had several opportunities to shop. And I could have shopped in NEW areas with NEW stores not my same home circuit. I didn't. To paraphrase (hopefully) another post, I want a life rich in experiences and not rich in stuff.
This is a really long way of asking how long do you think you could go without purchasing or bringing home any "stuff"? Obviously this doesn't include food or essentials like tp, deodorant, toothpaste...those things most people NEED in polite, hygenic society. Nor does it include the essentials for your four legged dependents!
Watch what "stuff" you bring home in the next few days. Did you leave the house intending to cart it home? Or was it an ah-ha, that's a great widget, I should get it because I could use it on.., it's such a great price..., I've always wanted one..., I don't have anything better to do..., Susie is buying one.... How do you justify to yourself the purchases that you make? Once home, do you have regrets? One way to simplify is to simply not bring it home in the first place! HOW LONG CAN YOU GO?
Me, I predict less han a weekend. How about you?
