Have you ever thought about the worth of your possessions? I'm not sure I had given it a ton of thought until recently, but I think I probably would have estimated $1000 or so for all my furniture and appliances and what not.
The truth? Is that my stuff is worth pretty much nothing to anyone besides myself.
And as I sell my stuff for rock bottom prices and give it away for free (why does no one in LA want a futon!) I can't help but think of the hours I worked to pay for this stuff, this stuff I now have to beg people to take.
It's not easy to take. In many ways, we feel like our possessions define us. So if all my things are worthless, what does that make me?
Sigh. Yet another reason to buy fewer things, huh? Anyone want a futon?
