For the last few months I have been looking hard at down sizing, making my life as simple, as uncluttered as possible. Maybe cause I started reading Walden? Ole Henry David makes a lot of sense to me. A few years back I had well over 100 good firearms. Now I probably have twenty or so which is certainly more than I need but it gets tougher to choose as you get fewer and fewer. I have several hundred books and at least that many DVD's but I can read them and watch them every six months or so and enjoy them. Probably has something to do with getting old. Soon I really will be able to hide my own Easter eggs. I don't know how many knives I have, certainly more than fifty or sixty but they don't require much care or space and I enjoy playing with them so they stay. Just some thoughts.

hunting easter eggs is a dangerous can easily get trampled by all the parents dragging kids around trying to get more than anyone else....sort of demolition derby and soccer rolled into one...most kids want to get a chunk and gnaw on it ....not stock the larder for a whole year

Forge beat me to the bungee fix!

Seriously though, I hit the garage once this fall and have another round to go. Basement about half as well. Makes me feel good to go down there now. Must be something about the last 50% I need to work harder on...

You do realize that good ol' Henry David went home to his mom's home cooking, eh? I wouldn't put too much stock in his writings as a path to whatever you seek.

I've learned the hard way that one usually needs whatever they sold.

I don't worry about down sizing 'cause when you die you're immediately downsized. Let the kids worry about the clutter.

I have a kindle and the cloud. Saves room on the bookshelves. Other than that only 7 barrister book cases.
