I Lived 80 Years and All They Gave Me Was This Lousy Box of Stuff

Today might be a bit morbid, but it is something I thought about for a moment yesterday. As I try and sell a lot of my belongings that lack utility, I am slowly becoming a minimalist. This is actually making me feel freer than I ever have before.

But, when a close friend’s grandmother died and he explained how emotional it will be for his family to pack up her belongings, I got to thinking. If I continue on my current path, when I depart this earth (or whatever planet we are living on then), I may have nothing more to show for it than a computer, a big ass tv, and a medium sized box of stuff.

This would take my family or loved ones about 8 minutes to pack up and discard. Part of me thinks I shouldn’t give a damn because I will be gone. But I don’t think anyone wants to ponder the fact that they lived a full life and that it can all be folded into a box in less time than an oil change.

So what am I going to do about this? Well, certainly nothing today. But I want to know how other minimalists feel about the topic. Also, I want to hear about how those collection addicts and hoarders feel.  I may scour some of their blogs or ask them personally and report back.
