Very important post! I’m reblogging this because, for now I have to live w/ my parents, and my mother, bless her, is a hoarder! I feel, to live a happy life it must be a clutter free life. My Philosophy is Simplicity . To live a good life one must let go of material items that are not necessary. I can, literally, put all my belongings in 2 rooms! In the future this won’t be the case but for now it is..and I can live with it, for now. “Things” do not make the person, and I’m desperately trying to help my mother understand this AND act accordingly. Wish me good luck!
