I've been trying to simplify my life - buying fewer clothes, having fewer appliances - and today, I cleared out my files. I tend to save everything - receipts, warranties, articles on exercising and losing weight and setting up an art business.
So I went through the files. Got rid of warranties for items I no longer own. Threw out lab reports that were over 5 years old - I mean, the dr's office has the originals, why do I need to hold on to them?? Same with car insurance - do I need 10 year old policies? No, I don't.
It was garbage. Now it's in the garbage. I've cleaned out the bookcase, I've cleaned out the files. I clean out my closet every year or two.
It feels good.
