“I have too much stuff. Most people in America do. In fact, the poorer people are, the more stuff they seem to have. Hardly anyone is so poor that they can’t afford a front yard full of old cars.”
via Paul Graham.
I can relate to this. My wife and I have been going through a process over the past few years of owning fewer, better things. We aren’t good at it yet, we are still attracted to junk in bulk discounts, but I would say the tide is slowly shifting.
