We live in a world of things whether in our home or offices. Many years ago, we lived in a small house, now our house has been enlarged and it is still filled with things. Sometimes we make up our minds to get rid of something but the following day we find it is of some use,and regret having thrown it away. But in many other cases we find ourselves surounded by many useless stuff. So as time goes on, every space is filled with all kinds of things . We are so full.Hi mylotters, what are the things like about you?

As humans we tend to accumulate a lot of material things. I, for one, hate clutter, however that doesn't stop me from accumulating my share of it. I find that when I get rid of things, I don't really miss them and in the rare case where I do, I just go out and buy a newer, better, more advanced one!

I also experienced this. Sometimes i can't bear ther being so many things in my home,i spend one afternoon sorting them and then dispose them, in which case i feel relaxed very much just as i have finished a big thing. But there is also cases like i just throw one of them i think of it is useful.LOL.

I have found that my house is too full too. I actually need a bigger house because I do not have room for the physical therapy equipment I want to get for my son. But I find that I have tons of stuff all over the place. It's junky and cluttered and lately I have been very concerned and am going to clean it all out!

In reality we just would not like to waste things.We are frugal. On the other hand , so many things filling our house will make our mind full too. I have this kind of experience that when i dispose something i am relaxed in mind for a time.

Archaiwy Oh you are so right. I open even my cupboards and think..why in the world do I need so many products...then I look closer and see I really use all the cleaning stuff..and all the make-up stuff etc etc. Life would be simpler if I could cut down and I tried. I tried using Baking Soda more for cleaning but found my "spot shout' was still best for removing carpet stains...lol we are all spoiled I think..

Hi friend, you are right, lot of things are changed now. In this modern days we are living a fast life and don't have more time for lot of things. Now we can see a lot of apartment house with lot of floors. Previously we can see a lot of independent house, but due to the population, we have lot of apartments and our house is surrounded with various things. Previously ladies will clean the house every day, but in this days most of the working women will clean their house once in a while as a result lot of unwanted stuffs are surrounded in the house which reduce the space

Things are important to me especially those bought on my travels. I find clutter clearing hard due to the emotional feeling of regret getting rid of something. I keep a wooden giraffe with one lost ear. I have to keep it since it brings me happy memories from Kenya. My collections of costume dolls, miniature houses and colorful crystals mean a lot me. I think I could do with getting rid of unwanted paper work.

We have much too much stuff. I am trying to control the clutter by getting rid of stuff and by not buying any new things. It seems to be a slow process though, because with a child in the house, I do kind of need new things for him once in awhile.
