I let go of a lot of stuff this year, and I mean stuff. I have been attempting to de-clutter this year and it has been a constant battle. I keep a box in my spare bedroom that I toss things in as I am cleaning. If it is useless clutter, or something that someone gave me that I do not like, or a book I have no intention of reading again it goes in the box. The box is sorted once it is full and the items tossed or sent to goodwill or another donation center.
So I have let go of materialism this year. I was talking with my friend Lisa last weekend about this. She was thinking of what she would save if a fire. While there are things I would miss, I do not think I would save anything besides myself and my dog.
