There’s a reason pockets and purses and briefcases only have so much space to store crap.
It’s because when you leave the house, you should only be able to take with you the stuff you can carry. So if that means you can make it to the car with a cell phone, a PDA, a sandwich and an apple in a plastic supermarket bag, a backpack filled with work papers, something wrapped in tin foil, a small bottle of water and a mini-cactus plant for your office desk…then that’s what you should take.
But why would you bring more than you can carry? Why would you expect that friends and family should be your overflow option in carrying crap? Why do you do this to people over and over again?
That’s my question.
