This morning the title of an older post on Christine Gilbert's blog Almost Fearless caught my eye “10 Unexpected Costs of Owning Things”. I read it and some of the comments it had elicited. Still in the heady post-cleaning out state from yesterday, it resonated strongly with me and I resolved to rethink the many boxes of books I was planning on taking to Belize. But before I reviewed the book inventory on my computer, I made the mistake of reading my emails first. Oooh - here’s one from Amazon. There are some 400 thread count sheets at a very good sale price and lots of good colors to choose from. Quickly -- delete, delete -- no more stuff! It was a close call, but I managed to resist the temptation and decided to write this post instead.
