How Much Stuff is Enough?

I was checking out Monica Ricci's Your Life: Organized blog and found a post with this great quote:

Anything you cannot relinquish when it has outlived its usefulness possesses you, and in this materialistic age a great many of us are possessed by our possessions.”                          Peace Pilgrim

Interesting timing, finding this today, because I've been thinking lately about how much stuff I own, and how much time and energy it takes to maintain it and keep track of it and even to feel vaguely guilty for never using a lot of it. Further confirmation that there's great value in paring down the material possessions that clutter our lives and our space. There's a peacefulness that comes with being surrounded by open, uncluttered space in our homes, offices, etc. That gets lost in our modern culture of acquisition.
Have a look at — and maybe follow — Monica's blog for her tips and thoughts on organization and productivity.
