Default Too much stuff

I came to korea with 2 suitcases. One was half full. And that included about 50 CDs, each in their own case.

Now, 3 jobs and 5 years later, instead of throwing my bags into a taxi I have to rent a truck to move to a new apartment. Not only that, I might have to make 2 trips !

I envy those simple souls out there.

I've given up. I love stuff and stuff loves me, or so it seems. Every few months I'll have a big "spring" cleaning, and end up throwing out 1-2 of those 100 litre green bags, but then a few months later I am once again drowning in "stuff". Plus there's the problem in Korea of having to buy those damn stickers in order to throw away bigger stuff, like furniture or old computers.

Now Its been another 13 years since I've back to open it.

ooohhhh don't we all just love collecting stuff!! I have been here for 5 years now and my 1st apt was quite large, then it went smaller and smaller, now it's back to a normal size, which is good cause more space is good BUT I always seem to fill up that extra space!!

Each time I have gone home, I've taken a Full suitcase back with me and ended up bringing a full one back plus a little bit more Now, I'll need my whole family to come help me move back to Canada hehehe
