STUFF


I bet you do, too. I happen to like a lot of different things...so, therefore...more stuff!

Now, if you don't have enough stuff....this is the store for you!


We girls have a lot of stuff...hair stuff, nail stuff, skin stuff, makeup stuff, dressy stuff, casual stuff, etc. Stuff for everything we do...which is, of course, as it should be.


I didn't even know about this...but apparently it's true...because there is a book about it...and a blog! If I was not white, I would write my own book.


**************************************************************************
A FEW FACTS ABOUT STUFF

1. We have more stuff than we need.

2. Yes, that 'we' includes YOU.

3. We have stuff we don't even know we have.

4. Stuff accumulates very easily...and very quickly!

5. No one has ever actually seen it happen, but stuff multiplies!

6. I know this is true, because it has happened to me. Upon commencing the packing process...I was surprised, shocked, and overwhelmed by the stuff that has appeared unbeknownst to me.

7. When the day comes that you realize the awful truth about your stuff...be prepared to act swiftly. You must rid yourself of the stuff with no looking back. if you hold on to it, it becomes yours. You actually begin to feel ownership of it even though it may not be yours, technically.

8 Once you feel this ownership...you're a goner. You have crossed over. This amazing amount of stuff is yours....and now you must either find a place to display it.... or store it....or move it.

9. One of the best ways to 'pass along' your stuff to others, is to hold a garage sale, a yard sale, a tag sale, a moving sale or whatever you wish to call it. It seems that at these sales, other folks who like stuff actually will come to your house and take it off your hands and add it to their collection...for a very low fee...certainly not what it is worth! FYI...I'll be having a huge MOVING MY HOUSE AND GARAGE SALE IN MY YARD very soon! It will all be tagged. Great stuff!!!

10. All these facts are true. I know from experience. I am living it even as we speak...or read and write. And I will be moving it in a few hours.

Okay...

I learn the truth about stuff each time I move.... glad I don't do it often!

Happy Moving!

I have a great reading about "stuff" but I don't think it would bring you any joy or comfort today! Have fun moving your stuff!

YAY! You're finally moving, came over to see if there were any pics, but I don't spot any yet. And yes, I love my STUFF too. It's amazing how it accumulates.

Have a wonderful Christmas, Tonja! Can't wait to see the new house.

I know that I CERTAINLY have more stuff than I need. I am amazed when I look around because I have no idea how it has all accumulated to quickly, and seemingly, without my knowledge! :-)
