Over the years, I accumulated a lot of possessions. I did not come from a rich family, I grew up with the mentality that I can’t throw away stuff unless they are totally worned out. Also, when I last moved house more than a decade ago, I threw away a lot of newspapers articles about my favourite actor. I still regret the moment I threw away 4 sketchbooks worth of sentimental values.
Thus, my room is full of stuff to the point that I have limited storage space. During the Chinese New Year spring cleaning, I throw away a lot of clothes and bags that are worn out. I decided that I should get rid of tangibles gradually. Last week, I threw away two blankets. This week, I threw away my 2001 winter clothes, video recorder and DVD player.
Still a long way to go ….
