Deuter Futura 28

If you have a back, then you probably need a Deuter Futura 28.

This thing is the best small backpack you could possibly imagine. I'm on a year long trip around the world right now, and this is my sole piece of luggage.

What makes it great?



I strongly believe that organization is an important step to being happy. Whether it is physical or mental, all that clutter needs to be cleared from your life.

A good way to start for me was to clean out my closet. I had been thinking about it for many weeks now. I had so many clothes that I just didn't know where to put them anymore! Especially since our dresser had started to fall apart... Most of the time, after my clothes got washed, I would leave them in the laundry basket, or trow them on my desk chair, or even on the floor until I wore them again or just ended up just throwing them back in the laundry because I was just too lazy to put them away. It's terrible, I know.

So yesterday I decided was the day I would go through all of my clothes and shoes as well as jewelry, and other accessories and either throw them out, keep them, or donate them. The fun part was taking all my clothes out of the closet and onto my 600 square feet room floor. I must say I was surprised and kind of scared at how many clothes I had. It nearly took up the whole floor space.

After realizing how much stuff I had, I set a goal to myself that I would only keep half of what I owned. So normally, I threw out the things that were not acceptable for donation. When that was done, I started making clothe piles. On one side of the room, I threw the things that I wanted to keep, and on the other, the ones I would donate. Surprisingly, both piles were quite even throughout this whole process. And too make sure I was okay with donating everything in my donation pile I went through them a second time. I didn't even second guess anything. I wasn't even that sad to lose half of my clothes. Needless to say, I don't need any of it.

Well not to go into details, but it took me nearly four hours to sort everything, bag my donations, rearrange the space, and put away my keepers. I owned so many things I had never worn before and never would have. Other thing I had spent a lot of money on, but had never even worn once! As sad as it is for me to waste so much time and money on these useless clothes, I think it is safe to say that I have leant my lesson and will definitely think twice before buying things. I now know that I should buy many good and not too expensive articles rather than many useless ones. But, I am happy to donate these things to others who might need them more than I.
