When you own some stuff, it owns you in some way in reverse also.
Stuff will consume
- Space: You need space to put it
- Time: You usually need to think about how to deal with it (Keep it, give it to someone or trash it?)
- Money: Obviously, you need to spend $$ to buy it in the first place?
Girls often like to buy stuff just because it looks nice or "it's such a good deal!" and this kind of mindset usually leads to a house full of useless stuff. Read Paul's article laidies! :P
