03Jan09 – Fresh Starts

Someone, somewhere in this world of consumerism has probably done this. If so, I have not heard of them but I wish I had. I have always been intrigued by the idea of – once every 5 years – not stopping at the spring clean, but instead clearing out ALL my possessions. Selling them off, throwing them away, giving all the money away save for £1437 (it was £1000 but the British Pound isn’t doing too well these days) with which to start all over again. I think this would help to keep life fresh.

“Consumerism is the equation of personal happiness with the purchase and consumption of material possessions.”

My girlfriend is not a fan of this idea.
