I’m Kimberly. I woke up one day and realized that I have too much stuff. Stuff I don’t use, stuff I don’t need… stuff that takes up too much of my time and energy. Finally, after months and months of thinking about it, I decided that 2012 was the year that I was getting rid of the extra stuff in my life. And I got rid of 1924 items that year! But there was still more extra stuff. How much extra? I haven’t figured that out yet, but I trust that I’ll know when it’s gone, and when what I have is enough. I’m curious to see how much has to go before I get there.
My stuff and I share a home in Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood with a sweet, bright, funny man named Paul (and his stuff), our shared stuff, three beautiful, ever-shedding cats, and six hens who lay the best eggs you’ll ever eat.
