More storage needed

carolyn chebaro, minimalism, less is more, simple lifestyle

And confession time [ again ] I play a game when I dander outside.

OR one might say I am nosey but I am intrigued by the of packages my neighbor receives. They are boxes of all shapes and sizes. In particular, my neighbor loves [ or perhaps lives for shopping for shoes ] Man …the number of shoes the woman buys is ridiculous.!!

I swear this past week I counted three pairs neatly left at her front door.

Three.

I have not lowered myself to count the number of shoes she has purchased in a month but I am sure it is in the double digits.

Today when I went outside for a breath of fresh air I glanced over and saw this box. It was a storage unit for>>>> you got it>>>>shoes [ shown above ] If you were in the neighborhood you would have heard me laugh.

Yes indeedeee, a storage unit for the shoes that have been purchased.

But let’s get serious…

I can only think that something is missing. Now I am no psychologist, but looking from the “outside in” something is wrong. My neighbor is addicted to shopping, online, for shoes.  Serious.

Regardless

All this goes so against my less is MORE mindset. I mean, how many pairs of shoes can one human being wear at one time.  [ last time I recall, this to be ONE ]. I get it, perhaps you might need several colors and styles but come on.

If you have been following me you know how many pairs of shoes I own.

Three.

And I get this might be an extreme BUT this is all I have determined I need. Each of the pairs of shoes has a purpose. I feel happy with my three pairs of shoes. 

This is my choice, I am not doing without.

Trust me…less is MORE always
