These days you don't own your stuff, your stuff owns you. At least that's true in my case. I have no trouble admitting that; partly because I don't really mind. I have a lot of fun with my stuff, eventhough it really consumes my time. We all kill time in different ways, some do it for mere entertainment and others do it just to escape their harsch realities. I have a nice reality so I do it as mere entertainment. I pretty much always have fun and I'm very rarely bored. Hmm, I guess that there are those that would deny that they're owned by their stuff until they day that they die, but hey - if you wanna lie to yourself go right ahead. Please note that I'm not saying that everyone is owned by their belongings.
A book that really changed my view on things (and changed my life too) - was Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui by Karen Kingston. A friend of mine recommended this book (thanks!). Another book that might help is The Eternal Wisdom by Dalai Lama. I couldn't find a link for this one, I have the swedish version so that title is a direct translation. He has written a lot of books about wisdom and he really changes your point of view on things (unless you're already a buddhist monk). I read these books years ago and if you need help clearing your clutter (in your apartment AND in your head) you should read them too.
Anyhoo, I'm gonna take some after-photos for my parents/friends later on and I might put up a few here too. Thank God I didn't take any before-shots. :)
Until next time, have a good one. //Arvid
