These past couple days have found me ruthlessly purging items in my pantry and kitchen. The innards of my cabinets are nearly bare. Alfred said it looked like it did when we were first married and starting out on our own.
To me, it looks like freedom. Freedom from a much too long to do list. Freedom from storing and organizing. Freedom from keeping up with the Joneses and needless spending.
The more I get rid of, the better I feel. I should have done this ages ago! I plan to go through my entire house with as much tenacity within the next five weeks and then have a yard sale.
I want just enough and no more.
