Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

Our first step on the path to freedom from capitalism is to PURGE PURGE PURGE the mountains of crap we have collected in the four years we have lived in this house. I am selling my entire library of books on Amazon, hosting a yard sale this weekend (and I'm being ruthless, I may have to drug and lock my husband up in a closet on yard sale day to keep him from intervening on behalf of his beloved Star Wars possessions)...

I've been able to barter away some furniture in lieu of having to sell it for more functional pieces, and craigslist has become my new friend.

I am so ready to be free of this weight. Feels good.

Baby steps, baby steps. Wish me luck.

Good luck, Shannon! And (gulp) at the risk of making your husband sad: May the force be with you and your yard sale!

Decluttering is one of the best. feelings. ever.

A lot of the folks in my life don't understand why I pretty much perform a daily purge of "excess." They don't understand how "stuff" (at least to me) equals "burden."

If I were only a little closer to Virginia (yeah, Maine's a bit of a 'far cry'), I'd definitely hit up your yard sale this weekend!
