你家的雜物已經堆積成山了吧

By BBC英語英語教學

你是否有太多個人物品?

東西太多家里堆不下了,

你要怎么處理?

Do you have too many pairs of shoes or old gadgets lying around your home? I'm sure many of us have too much stuff that we don't really use and when it starts getting out of hand, it really is time to do some spring cleaning to de-clutter our lives.

However, deciding which items to get rid of can be tricky especially if you are materialistic, believing that physical possessions are the most important thing in life. Also, some people are sentimental about letting go of their personal property. But if you haven't got roomin your house to move, it's time to evaluate what is really important to you and decide what are your prized possessions and what is just junk.

Instead of just chucking it away and filling up landfill sites, items could be recycled or given to a charity to re-sell. You could also make some money by using websites where people are willing to pay for second-hand goods.

Some people have taken a minimalist approach, deliberately trying to keep life simple. Bea Johnson, authorof Zero Waste Home, has done this. She says "we've asked really true questions, and evaluated every single thing that we have. There is nothing that we overlooked. I even came to look at my vegetable peeler for example and asked myself, 'do I really need that vegetable peeler'?"

Of course, if you're a shopaholic or a fashion-victim it's hard to stop buying and shopping online makes purchasing stuff very easy. James Wallman is a writer and journalist — he questions what we actually need.

He says "I'm not anti-stuff — stuff is good. I'm anti too much stuff and I'm anti the wrong stuff. Don't go out and buy that labelledgood that you think is going to make people think something more of you. That's not going to make you happy."

This sounds like good advice. It's good to take stock of what we have and what we really need. But there are still some things I just can't face parting company with; my CD collection, even though I now download my music, and my childhood teddy bear. What about you — have you got something that you just can't throw away?
