Lately we've been getting rid of old and excess stuff. Like those age old t-shirts, which I've kept "just in case". Or piles of papers, some computer science prints and such. And even books.
That's the most difficult thing for me: Letting go of books. Even the ones I never read. I feel like I'm doing something wrong. Clothes, furniture and prints are much easier. With books it feels like getting rid of a family member.
It's not that we just throw the old stuffs away. If they are good and recyclable they go to the local reuse centre or library or something.
Seeing how much stuff we have hoarded throughout these around ten years makes me think. Think about things, think about memories, think about buying stuff and throwing them away.
