Minimalist mind shift

The other day, surrounded by yet another collection of scattered things around the house, I mumbled to myself:

"Argh!  I'm done with this!  We have too much stuff.  We need to get rid of some."

That, my friends, is what I call a "minimalist mind shift."  Because traditionally, in our day and age, when we have too many people and too much stuff we are supposed to want a bigger home to house it all.  And yes, I might feel some days like we could use an extra room or two, somewhere to separate children when things get too close.  But I never feel now like we need to get a bigger house for all our stuff.  I have won the battle against "stuff."
