My Pare Down Project is complete and I own a lot less stuff. It feels great! I’ve been putting things down on the street to give away, and it always amazes me how quickly it disappears. The last thing I brought down was a box full of smaller stuff, figuring people would look through it and take what they wanted, but someone walked away with the whole box, minutes later. Greedy!
I took this the other day, on my way to the library. This was from a major fire on Greenwich Street that destroyed Village Paper, a party store that’s been there for … decades at least. I’m pretty sure I’ve been buying all my party supplies there since I moved here (1982, I think it was).
