For some reason my house is full of stuff. Not even cool or useful things, just redundant stuff that I don't need or ever use. And yet for some reason I hold on to it. It's easier in the moment to just quickly stash things in a box and then squeeze those boxes into a closet—the perfect place to forget about their existence. At some point I realized that if I didn't do something about it, I'd end up carrying all this stuff around for...the rest of my life?! And so I set out to clean up my life and made a short film of the process. Since I never, ever want to do this again, I created a Buying Guide to help me make better decisions the next time I want to purchase something new. If you could use some help with it as well, download and print one for yourself!
I'd love to hear from you—have any of you embarked on a similar purging mission lately?
