If only it were this easy!
Today is the BIG moving day. Whatever is left in the house (like beds) we are moving to the farm house. As I look around, I think... "Oh my goodness. How much stuff is enough?" Our family lives on the simple side compared to most Americans and I still think that we have too much. I am a "thrower outer" so that does help. It's not that I think we need to be poor paupers or live in a hut with only a pot to... cook in.
This is our third move in 2 1/2 years. That's strange to me because when I was growing up we only moved once when I was about 5. My kids have moved 4 times in 7 1/2 years. Yesterday, one of them said, "Wonder where we are going to live after this house?" At least they're taking it well!
Anyway, as we pack all of our stuff, I wonder how much is too much? When do you say, we have too much stuff and start to throw out more? I keep some things because we are renting. Rental houses are usually smaller than a home would be if we owned it. When we rent, we are usually settling on something rather than getting something that actually meets all of our needs.
I don't know... I'm just thinking "out loud". Really, I'm procrastinating. As soon as I finish my coffee I have to start packing the rest of our stuff!!
Thank you for hanging in there with me.
Many of you have said that you are praying for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you! May God send special blessings your way!
