Moving – Holy Moly

There is absolutely nothing like moving other people to make you realize how much CRAP people own.
After moving Okturn Delmoniq’s friends into their new apartment I realized that I want to get rid of 90% of my stuff. These things just strap us down – and annoy the people who are helping us move.
I remember not just 7 years ago I was able to move all of my belongings in my little Ford Escort – now it takes two moving cubes to fit all of my crap in. I’ve decided that the next time I move I want to be able to move all of my “loose” things in 20 boxes. Books, clothes, bedding, DVDs, ect – all in 20 boxes. I think I’ll also get rid of my TV (a flat screen would be a nice upgrade, or better yet no TV since I don’t really use it anymore now that I got rid of cable). As for the furniture, I’m not sure what I’ll do about that. But I suppose I won’t be moving for a while, so there is no need to really think about this.
But man, seeing all of the crap that other people have really made me mindful of how much STUFF I have, stuff that I don’t need at all.
