Kindness Journey – Day 98 – Making room in a smaller place

I broke down and purchased some new gear to help with my upcoming podcast. Now, I just have to find room for all of it. Moving to a smaller apartment necessitated some purging of possessions, and that is a good thing, but being faced with the reality of a smaller space makes it clear that more needs to be done.

I have to really prioritize what will be in my desk/secretary going forward. As I continue purging, there is simply too much stuff in and on the desk. The foldout desk can’t close until most of the stuff finds a new permanent home, or just gets tossed out.
