Cleansing and Discarding

The goal of less is harder to achieve that one might believe. To have a great deal of physical possessions and to wish to part with them in a beneficial way (i.e. not just throwing them away) takes more thought that one might think. I have to find the proper places to give them to. As I don’t currently have the financial base to live on I will choose to sell some of these items to used book stores. Others will not grant me monetary value, so I will have to find somewhere to donate them to. Some books will even be used to participate in Book Crossing. If anyone else has another suggestion I would certainly like to hear it.

Books are not the end of the pieces I need to dispose of, but right now they appear to be the most numerous (as the many boxes of them makes obvious). All my possessions can not fit in the trunk of a car yet, and I have a long way to go. I’m getting there, though.

Physical items are only part of the minimalizing of my life’s clutter. Discovering a proper career, developing a stable schedule of life-improving activities and refraining from taking part in detremental actions should become increasingly important.

  1. The local Salvation Army Thrift Store ussually accept most of the items I don't use anymore. And I can get a tax deduction on most as well 🙂

  2. I don't know if there is a Salvation Army location in my city, but I'm sure there are similar places here that I'll consider donating to.
