While there’s no scientific data to show that living with less stuff will increase your happiness, a growing number of people insist that this is in fact part of the equation
An estimated 70 percent of American homeowners cannot park their car in the garage due to it being filled with stuff that doesn’t fit inside the house
The average credit card debt for Americans who carry a balance is $16,000. Meanwhile, financial hardship and work stress are two significant contributors to depression and anxiety. The answer is to buy less :)

Fas,

I totally agree. We just had some upgrades to our home and I had to move my "stuff". I was sick about it because I have become somewhat of a hoarder. It seemed each item had an attached memory and I could always picture a place or time when I would need it or like to have it.

Well I was forced to bite the bullet and just get rid of things. Things that I didn't need. It was difficult but after doing it I felt better. I have made a vow not to buy anything unless I am willing to throw something away. Even saying it bothers me but I have to remember the feeling of freedom and power I get from filling the bags that go to others that may be able to re purpose the things I have accumulated.
