The Return Home: Toss or Hoard?

The Return Home: Toss or Hoard?

Come home and throw away! Coming back from a vacation in a clutter-free zone like a hotel or b&b is a great motivator for getting rid of the unnecessary once you're back at home. Never is it more obvious how much extra junk is floating around than when you realize that sometimes all you need fits into a carry on bag. It seems that life has a lot more room when you aren't contending with so much stuff. Obviously we need a lot more than that for everytday living--but how much? I've got my eye on some closets and worn out towels, things in the kitchen that I just don't use, and of course clothes that are just taking up space in the closet. Having spent the last few days in Moab, Utah where I've gone river rafting and hiking, it feels so much nicer to be attached to fewer things. I'm freer to go out and explore (and not have to stay home and organize!). With the Fall Cure starting we're going to be taking a look at our stuff habits and making decisions about what goes and what stays. What about you guys? Do you toss after a trip? Do you bring home more than you left with? Are you inspired to redecorate?
