Letting Go


I am the first one to admit that I love my stuff (or I like to lovingly refer to them as treasures). 😉 I’m not a hoarder, but definitely not a minimalist either.  Kathi Lipp is the author of Clutter Free and she was a guest on Focus on The Family this month.  The original broadcast aired on January 9th and if you’re interested, you can download for free this month.  I listened to it twice. 🙂 Here are some key takeaways:

  • Keep what I care about and care about (or use) what I keep.
  • Ask 3 questions — do I love it, do I use it, and would I buy it again?  The answer should be yes on all.
  • Most of us keep stuff out of fear — what if I need it again…in 25 years??
  • Everything we own costs us in some real way — space, time, energy/stress, money, and more money (worth repeating).

She concluded the broadcast by asking her listeners to take the “2,000 Things Challenge.”  Toss, donate, or recycle 2,000 things –start going through the garage, closets, and drawers.  The husband and I started today.  Will you take the challenge with us? 🙂
