A few weeks we did an episode about downsizing, inspired by a voice message sent in by a listener. 

We both love the idea of downsizing and the topic sparked a passionate conversations, but it got us thinking: what do we do with our journals?

If you are an avid, life-long journal writer, you will find yourself with a growing stack of journals, that might even surpass your book collection when you start nearing the end of your life. What do you do with them all? Do you destroy them? Leave them to your kids for posterity? Hope someone will care enough to read them—or hope they WON'T?

We discuss on today's episode.

Remember, we welcome your thoughts and questions always. Send us a voice memo of something you are thinking about. It might just inspire an entire show. Record yourself on your voice memo app, then email it to us at
