It’s easy to accumulate way too much stuff and then one day realize that it’s burying you. Most of us do gain enjoyment out of material possessions.
I believe that I have a minor shopping addiction which has led me to where I feel burdened and stressed by the amount of things I’ve gathered.
To ease this stress a bit I give away clothes to less fortunate girls or even younger girls who I know will be excited about them. A box here and there makes a difference to help lessen the abundance of things I have sitting around.
A good place to donate to is women’s shelters, they are always extremely appreciative of anything given to them. Usually you are unable to enter so just leave your donations at the door and someone there will bring them in. In a lot of circumstances; women and children are without most of their belongings as many times they hurry there to be safe and don’t have the time to worry about material possessions making it very nice for them to receive things from us who have too much.
Doing that doesn’t only help clear the clutter and reduce my negativity about it but it makes me feel good about giving things to people that will actually appreciate and use them.
