I think many of us hate to "waste" stuff. I know I do but I just grit my teeth and out it goes. I'm happy to recycle anything I can, so that helps but I really prefer no clutter. I like "spaces" between my stuff. I don't like nor remember to dust so the less, the better. But I married a pack rat....make that a "recovering pack rat." I really think he's learned his lesson. It actually took moving to a new house to accomplish it but it worked and he was so embarrassed and vowed: Never again. And so far, so good. He just kept filling up the garage until he couldn't find anything anymore/ nor get into it anymore. Here, we now have a workable garage with tools, etc in their place, etc. I know it hard for a guy who's a gen'l contractor not to want lots of hardware but it got ridiculous.
And I guess I've gone on and on here, hoarding words!! sorry.
