What do you do with presents?


by @bydorian |  | 6 comments

So there are many occasion people give gifts, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Birthdays, โ€ฆ etc.

For instance:

  • Food: you can use it pretty quickly
  • Flowers: doesnโ€™t last too long
  • Perfume: take a lot of space for a month or two
  • Clothes: what if you donโ€™t life them? (eg: a t-shirt, a scarf, โ€ฆ)
  • Random stuff: as part of the nomadic life, we want to be minimalist and canโ€™t keep too much stuff

I would say there is short-term, middle-term and long-term goods. And useful / useless / special goods.

So we have a problem, we donโ€™t have infinite storage space (either out of the bag in containers or inside bags).

Attacking the source of the problem:

  1. Asking people to give mostly short-term goods, useful middle-term/long-term goods (eg: from a wishlist for instance)
  2. Asking for no physical gifts
  3. Not going / celebrating those occasions
  4. Something else?

I think itโ€™s pretty hard to prevent people from giving unwanted gifts (rejecting a gift is an huge cultural mistake).

Attacking the effects of the problem:

  1. Giving gifts to somebody else
  2. Re-selling gifts
  3. Taking a photo of it and throwing it away
  4. Shipping them to some stockage container company
  5. Something else?

I personally think thatโ€™s one of the biggest thing against minimalism, and ultimately against the freedom of moving quickly.

So, what you you do?

Just interested to see a quick rundown of everyoneโ€™s next stop. Where will you be going next and when?

What did you wish you knew earlier?

What took you longer to figure out than you thought?

Iโ€™ll become a nomad soon and I want to know what you learned after spending time on the road. Feel free to repeat tips that have been told already in order to increase their significance.

(Obviously donโ€™t talk about things that you got right away and that are mentioned in every blog post)
