I have been slowly getting rid of stuff since I moved into my home a year ago. It feels great. I have gotten rid of most of my posessions including furniture. I'm now thinking of getting rid of all my books and music cds. I may eventually get rid of all my DVDs too. Does anyone else live a very minimal life? When did it start for you? What motivated you to live that way? Do you like it? Has anyone become a minimalist and then gone back to owning lots of useless crap because they couldnt live without it?
