Thoughts from amongst the boxes

I think there comes a time in everyone's life, particularly when they're moving house, when they ask themselves "where did I get all this junk from?"

Staring into the cardboard abyss that was my dining room up until last night (pictured above), I certainly asked myself this question. I mean, really, what is in all these boxes? And do I need all of it?

I'd much prefer to live a simple life with less stuff, so I have made myself this promise from now on - for every thing that I acquire, I will get rid of something else. That way, I can't end up with more stuff than what I have now.


  1. Good luck with the settling in! I know EXACTLY what you mean... I've given up caring about all my stuff but luckily I've not had to downsize into a smaller house yet! EEP That would be tough!

  2. me too! I had so much less clutter when I was living in a tiny apartment. I dread the day we have to move house :(

    PS: I have those ikea lamps too!
