We’re obsessed with stuff. We fill our homes with things we’ve collected, and when there’s no more room we rent storage lockers to house our stuff. I’ve been there, too. For at least a year I paid $200 a month for a storage locker. When I look back at that time, I ask myself: What was I thinking? It’s just a few years later and I have none of the things that I paid so much money to hold on to! Why didn’t I just let go of it all in the first place, instead of paying at least $2400 to keep a bunch of stuff in a big, dark box?
I’m not the only one who has been through this experience. It’s made me curious to know, what is the meaning of clutter? And why can’t we let go of all this stuff!?
