I have a dear friend who is attempting an almost impossible task in our possession obsessed society; to have only 100 personal items. She is taking her time but that is her goal. Only 100 personal items includes toiletries, shoes, clothes, nick-knacks, etc. It does not included family heirlooms, tool for work, food items, kitchen tools, or transportation. Her question has been "Does this thing serve me, or do I serve it?"
I plan on applying this code of thought to laundry right now. I will let you know how it goes.
OK, I forgot we still have to do school. I guess I'll have to start after lunch.
