Throughout this year, several bloggers will engage in a conversation here and on their blogs — asking questions of each other and responding. Others are absolutely welcome to join the conversation, as well. Learn more about the ladies of Blogversation 2012.
Today’s question comes from Mary Jean Babic, a Brooklyn-based writer and a new blogger on a Tumblr site called Her Royal Babicness:
Colleen and I have often discussed how much we had to downsize when moving from a Midwestern house to a New York apartment.
Out went furniture, clothes, books, CDs, kitchen stuff, etc., in massive pre-move yard sales. And we live perfectly fine without it all, so what did we have it for in the first place?
What’s your relationship with stuff? Are you someone who goes to garage sales or has them? Do you have rituals for purging? Do you have a storage unit? Does it pain you to part with things, or do you skip happily around the cleared-out space? Let’s hear it.
