My anti consumption revelation.

December 16, 2016

“A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it.”  GeorgeCarlin 

The solutions that roll around inside of my head to decrease consumption involve creating another consumable, either in product or idea.

Therefore, by keeping them where they’re stored, in my head, reduces consumption.

In other words,  just figured out how to do something by doing nothing.

Or what I like to call being efficiently lazy.

Even waaay better than those, reusable grocery bags, that people buy so they can feel better about themselves. Thinking they have done something to help the environment.

Meanwhile, those sit in thousands of drawers, at the redundant end of stuff made solely, to keep those drawers filled.

To be tossed out later,  because it never gets used, to start that cycle over and over again.

The only time I see those “green” bags being used, is when someone buys one or two items, they wouldn’t have needed a bag in the first place.

Only to get in their car to drive a few blocks home.

George Carlin  “A place for my stuff”

This is my stuff, that’s your stuff, that’ll be his stuff over there.

That’s all you need in life, a little place for your stuff. That’s all your house is, a place to keep your stuff.

If you didn’t have so much stuff, you wouldn’t need a house. You could just walk around all the time.

A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it. You can see that when you’re taking off in an airplane.

You look down, you see everybody’s got a little pile of stuff. All the little piles of stuff.

And when you leave your house, you gotta lock it up. Wouldn’t want somebody to come by and take some of your stuff.

They always take the good stuff. They never bother with that crap you’re saving. All they want is the shiny stuff.

That’s what your house is, a place to keep your stuff while you go out and get…more stuff!

Sometimes you gotta move, gotta get a bigger house.

Why? No room for your stuff.”
