    That was wonderful, Ash. I loved what you wrote. Being at the cabin by myself is a place where I have very little. When I am home, I find mind myself still having things that I haven’t yet parted with. Thank you for reminding me that I can do that.

      Aw I love when you comment, Aunt Kathie! You know so well what cabin life is all about! I’m so happy this blog post could serve as a reminder that you can do that!

    I have found myself working to get more things out of my closet and give them away. It feels good to give away things that someone else can use.

      That is the best way to clear out items you don’t use. I can’t count how many times I have loved something I found at the thrift store because it didn’t serve a purpose for its original owner.

    I follow you on IG but this is the first blog post of yours I’ve read and I completely feel the same. Though, I still live in MPLS I feel that consumerism and the need to “keep up with the Jones’s” is what has caused me some of my unhappiness. This was a great read, I’ll continue to follow and subscribe. Thank you!

      Hey Nick! Thanks for following and reading! I really love connecting with people on this topic because it seems to be so relevant for so many people. I think you put it so well, “keeping up with the Jones’s” definitely creates this cycle of consumerism.
