Realize Clutter

Today I have come to realize how clutter harms us in our efforts to excel in life.

We build clutter because of fear. Fear is what keeps us from exploring our full potential.

Let me give you an example. My friend has built 2 extra sheds in addition to his garage to store old car parts. He is a mechanic, and he is afraid if he gets rid of a part, that he will need it.

If he didn't have all of those parts that he doesn't need, he wouldn't have spent the money and time building the sheds. Plus, his emotion of fear is sending away the good emotions/karma that could be empowering him. Not to mention the time it takes him to ramble through all of these parts when he actually might need one.

What other ways can fear and clutter be causing problems in our lives? We buy things because they are on sale. We are afraid not to buy them because it is such a good deal. We may never even use these items. Our world becomes so cluttered, we have to buy a bigger home or rent storage buildings to fit all of these items. Most of which we never even use.

How many times have you gone through your basement or a closet and found items new with the tags still on them? Items you just had to have at the time, or bought just in case...because it was such a good deal.

I hope this information has helped you to realize maybe it is time to declutter your life and your home.

How it Relates

OK, by now you're probably wondering what all of this has to do with an inexpensive lifestyle.

Material items cost money. They cost money to buy. They cost money to keep. And a lot of times you barely use them. You just ended up wanting something new...another expense.

Now living in a completely furnished condo, I do not have to deal with breakdowns and repairs. These are included in the maintenance agreement. Plus after making my home as maintenance free as possible, the people who are renting my home from me, are now obligated to the repairs and maintenance in return for low rent.

My goal now is to find free things to see in different cities, and post them to my web site .

Stay tuned for me, and take time to visit my other blogs.
