Re: No matter how much I purge

Yep, needs change, so we end up buying things for those needs and then purging what doesn't work all over again. My kids are homeschooled so our educational toys are constantly being purged and rebought/made. Clothes are inherently like this, we reasses with every season and growth spurt. Cosmetics too, my skin and hair are always changing. There are few things in our homes that don't need constant purging. It always makes me feel wasteful though. I try to do my best at finding old items a new home and buying items that decompose easily, but it's still sobering how much stuff a family of five goes through even after we've pared down considerably. It makes me wonder how much the general population goes through when they aren't being so careful about what they're bringing into their home.
