I have too many things
Posted April 17th, 2009 - 10:08 am by from Maastricht, Netherlands (Permalink)

I am a person who likes to travel a lot (no shit, I'm on CS...) and I move very often.

Now unfortunately I have many many things that burden me. Life would be so much easier if I could pack all my things in my little backpack + maybe a trunk and go some other place to live.

As it is i have:

Books. Lots and lots of Books. And I love my books. I collect SciFi Paperbacks. I have first prints of 2001: A Space Odyssey, of I Robot, or Star Wars and lots and lots of other less well known books. At one time (i think i have maneged to get rid of some since then) had over 2000 books.... (wow. imagine someone giving me 1€ for every book...)

Instruments. I collect instruments

hm... no point in listing everything i guess...

actually the problem is that I like to collect, i guess.

I am trying to figure out a way to separate from things that I love dearly without feeling guilty or sad about it.

Any ideas? How do you separate from things? What would you do if you where me?

Id be interested in your input.

hey paul,

when I give stuff away I give it to people who are happy about it and who like the pieces! ...mostly to people I know. ...that makes me feeling not to trash them, but giving them a new "home" ;-) ...a lil romantic idea, I know ;-)

I know a good way to get rid of musical instruments - give them to somebody who will play them and love them. Or maybe loan them and you can get it back when you want to! On that note, I am a muscian and lookign for a flute (blockflute) and drums (djembe and/or darabuka) to borrow and take care of ;-)
