The Hermit Be the change you want to see in the world
I feel like I’m submerged in a sea of clutter. There’s so much STUFF! It was draining to think of ebaying everything and garage sales, but there is an alternative. I was just reading about the Vacuum Law of Prosperity and was thinking of testing it :-)
Basically it involves giving away your things to the less fortunate who could use them, and thus creating a space for new and better things/events/people to enter your life. It’s not about getting more THINGS. Arghggh. The less things the better.
So now I’m going to figure out what those things are, pack them up and donate them. I would like to do this in an intelligent way however so people can get what they really need and want.
When I was unemployed some years ago I did a stint in a charity shop. I remember a whole lot of musty clothes that I wasn’t sure people would buy. I also read about how some stores were throwing out stuff that didn’t sell, which was quite sad.
So the alternatives are Freecycle and Gumtree. I will be making use of all of them. Now I have to figure out what stuff goes to what outlet.
