The Start of the Journey

As stated in previous post it is our dream to get 'off the grid'
Well with this is mind we have had to think a lot about downsizing and what is truly important and/or necessary in the whole scheme of things. I look around the room and all the stuff we have collected over the years. I definitely have a shit load of stuff packed away for various reasons, which got me to thinking...

All of these material things we collect what's going to happen to them. Are they really of interest to anyone but yourself. Yes some of these material things are valuable, very valuable in fact and someone else might be interested in owning but is anyone really going to take the time to sell them after you're gone. Perhaps but who knows they could end up sitting in the back of a closet for who knows how long. Or burned for fuel  who knows. So with this thought in mind combined with wanting to downsize in order to live a different life this is what we have decided to do with our 'stuff'. Our plan is this.

JJ is building a Stuff Verse page where we will post our things we can live without Some items will have a monetary value, we need to make a little money for our new life right, others make an offer we just want to know it’s going to someone who will appreciate it for their time on earth and then pass it along to another appreciative individual.

Stay tuned....
