Organizing is not a solution

Simply organizing our stuff (without removing it) is always only a temporary solution.

At its heart, organizing is simply rearranging. By definition, organizing possessions is an action that must be repeated over and over and over again.

Shortcomings rarely considered

  • Organizing doesn’t benefit anyone else. The possessions we rarely use sit on shelves in our basements, attics, and garages.
  • It doesn’t turn back our desire for more. 
  • It doesn’t solve our debt problems. It never addresses the underlying issue that we just buy too much stuff
  • It doesn’t force us to evaluate our lives

Consider removing your possessions

  • It forces questions of passion, values, and what’s truly most important to us.
  • It is not a temporary solution that must be repeated. It is an action of permanence.
  • Removing possessions begins to turn back our desire for more as we find freedom, happiness, and abundance in owning less.
  • Removing ourselves from the desire to own more creates an opportunity for significant life change to take place.
