Well, I am now working to get my 2nd living room sorted out. I have collected 2 boxes of books to give away, tendency still increasing ๐Ÿ™‚ . Then the storeroom is due. Ebay is waiting for at least five articles, two of them being furniture, which I am glad to get rid of.

I can only say: It’s a strange sensation, throwing all that stuff out. But I sorted out a great criteria for selecting things. I take them in my hand, and I ask myself do I really need this? … most times the answer is no, but I’ll keep them anyways, just in case - you never really know. At that point I ask myself how often did you say exactly the same thing about exactly the same object? - if the answer to that question is greater than one the thing gets thrown out. (Exceptions in special cases of course permitted ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) …

I have read once that stuff lying around in your house / flat / rooms / etc. is stuff which is just as well lying around “in your brain”, i.e. blocking both physical as well as mental resources. I have found it to be true, I can say.
