My apartment is way too small and has little practical storage space so I don't really have this problem (though I'm rather minimalist anyway).

It was a spring cleaning kind of weekend, thankfully. I was always rather minimalist too, I'm not a collector of any kind but do keep some sentimental stuff.

Then along came the kids. And their stuff. I don't even know where most of it comes from, but it's like digging out of a neverending avalanche.

It's a good thing I actually like the challenge of organizing. Sort, keep, donate, purge, repeat.

I enjoyed the video in the OP. For the most part, we take our stuff for granted and rely too much on recycling and not enough on reducing and reusing.

Like the Sistehood of the Travelling Pants.

That simple T-shirt you’re wearing isn’t so simple after all. A Texas farmer grew the cotton, a Chinese worker spun the thread and cut the fabric, a Florida merchant placed it in his store, and a Tanzanian entrepreneur will resell it after you’ve donated it to the Salvation Army.

Thanks for posting this Angela Harlem.. I love this video and thought of posting it here a while back. It has really made me conscious of how much cheap/disposable items are out there and how it is bad for the environment and for people.
