So lately I’ve been doing a lot of purging around the house (closets, garage, kids rooms, you name it). So the next thought in the list of Ten Thoughts on Whole Living in the September issue of Body & Soul magazine was perfect! Here it is: ” Your stuff reflects you. As your needs evolve, find new homes for your old things.” This also reminds me of something I read in Jack Canfields book, The Success Principles. He has a lot of exercises in the book to help you get organized and set your goals. One of the things was to create a list of “incompletes”. You are supposed to list all of the projects that you have hanging around and all of the things you need to get rid of in order to allow room for what it is you want in your life to come in (this doesn’t necessarily mean material things).

The big thing that I’m gettin rid of and not replacing is a refrigerator in my garage. It finally gave out (it’s about 11 years old). I thought about getting it fixed or getting a small, new one to keep in the garage, but realized we reall don’t need it anymore. My kids are big enough that the frozen things from Costco are dwindling, I stopped buying them juice boxes/bags, I’ve moved the water bottles to the refrigerator inside the house and I’ll be saving money every month on my electric bill (which helps a lot!). And it feels really good to know that I’m not just getting rid of something. I’m not replacing it either.
