Over time we did acquire more items such as clothes, some furniture and other items that brought value to our lives. 

Twice a year we host a packing party, where we box several rooms in the house. We only take out what we need. If we don’t remove the items from the box within 90 days then we donate these items. A packing party is pretty empowering, try it. 

Idea episodes are brief topic episodes focused on ideas worth hearing and potentially incorporating. Idea episodes will publish every other episode.
