....so does it follow that if you have less you want less?
I was chatting with my husband last night about our goals post paying off our mortgage. The house needs a lot of cosmetic work done on it and it makes sense to clear the mortgage and then change the windows, have new floors, have the family bathroom refurbished and paint everywhere, to make the whole house look lovely. The children will be older so hopefully the new look will last!
I would really like a clutter free and completely tidy house. I used to have this until I met my husband who has a lot of stuff and is not good at putting things away. I have been trying to throw one significant item away a day in order to clear some clutter and I am also trying to reduce the amount of stock that my company has so that I can clear some room in my office for some of his things.
It got me thinking. When we buy a lot of things people say that it just makes us want more. However, it does not seem to be the case that if we have very little then we want even less....or does it? I have never had very little so I am not sure, but what I do know is that I can do without a lot of the clutter that I have at the moment.
