Stuff Addiction… most of us have it. It’s often a direct result of what some people call Retail Therapy.
We have become a society totally addicted to the accumulation of stuff. Some stuff we use, most stuff we don’t use that often.
The government wants us addicted to buying and storing more stuff – it’s good for the economy they tell us. But really it’s good for the skim (taxes & fees) the government takes from everything that moves.
If we all just started circulating the stuff we already have, Walmart and the government would get extremely upset with us. All the stuff Walmart sells today and the government taxes today, already exists and sits unused in someone’s home or storage unit.
I know people who have so much stuff that they fill a double car garage with household stuff and freeze their cars outside all winter long
Other people have so much stuff that a whole storage industry has been created to store all that extra stuff. E Bay, Kijiji, Craigslist all exist solely because we have to much stuff.
Stop stockpiling your stuff and get it back in motion.
Here are my rules for dealing with extra household stuff.
- If you have to rent, build, buy or convert space to store your household stuff
– YOU HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF
- Stored Stuff is of no use to anyone and must be set free to re-circulate in the universe.
– SET YOUR STUFF FREE
Here are my 4 steps to dealing with stuff I haven’t touched in over a year.
1- Sell It, 2- Donate It, 3- Give it away, 4- Throw It Out
I’m a busy full-time Realtor in Calgary. I see the effects of Stuff Addiction everyday. It’s not pretty.
Another industry called Home Staging has been created because of stuff addiction.
There isn’t a professional home stager or Realtor that doesn’t tell home sellers that the first step to getting a home ready to sell is to De-Clutter.
Which is a polite way of saying you have a Stuff Addiction problem.
Stop the hoarding you call collecting and de-clutter today.
Don’t wait until you are moving. Don’t wait for spring. Don’t wait another minute get started today.
The universe is waiting…… Set Your Stuff Free
