It started with... storage

We've spent the last week moving our stuff into storage ready for our departure this Sunday. Now I know that everything we own fits into a 10' x 15' storage unit, although it makes for a tall pile. I'm not sure if I'm pleased or horrified by this fact. In some ways it doesn't feel like we've accumulated too much stuff. It all fits in one room! On the other hand, if we were back to living in a studio apartment, we wouldn't even be able to open the front door. Perhaps as a 20-something I'd have been horrified, but as an increasingly bloated 30-something, it all seems just fine.

Perhaps the trip will recapture some of that 20-something spirit. We've already reduced our material bloat by selling a bunch of stuff before we leave. I'm sure weeks of eating Dahl and trekking in Nepal will reduce my bodily expansion too.
