  1. Great blog title, not that I’m biased or anything (cough cough).

    We have problems with not being able to find something and having to buy a replacement. Of course, we usually find the original shortly thereafter. At least it’s usually consumables, so they get used eventually. Still… grrr.

    I’m cleaning out my closet of stuff I don’t wear. One or two had tags attached, but most of them were just not being worn at all regularly. I just need to take them to a reseller store to see if I can get paid for any of them. Then donate the rest to Goodwill.

    • Ha! So fun 🙂 I will definitely check out your blog this evening.

      My husband is usually more guilty of the not being able to find things. I’m definitely way more of the person who buys things and never wears/uses them. Do you have good resale shops by you?

  2. This is like the alcoholics anonymous quiz: Is A.A. for you? This is just the hoarder’s version, lol. I am proud to report that I only nodded my head yes to one of these statements. I do own VHS tapes. They’re all Loretta Lynn recordings. Don’t tell me that’s weird 🙂 Oh wait, it must be weird. I’m only 34 yrs old. How can this be? But it’s true. I absolutely refuse to dispose of these until Mr. Crackin’ transfers this stuff to to our computer…even if I have to buy the recorder and even though most or even more is available on YouTube.

    • Coal Miner’s Daughter? Not weird. Well, maybe it IS weird. But I grew up on country, so it kind of makes sense to me. If that’s the only thing on that list you’re guilty of, I’d say hang onto those babies as long as you’d like! Glad you stopped by!

  3. I’m such a minimalist I can’t relate to this post whatsoever. Soon you’ll be like me muahahaha. 🙂

    Sweet Phroogal profile!

    • I’m so happy that you can’t relate to this post. (Wait, is that a sign that I’m going to be a bad blogger? Happy that readers don’t connect to my content? Ha!) While I thankfully don’t have mountains of debt to scale, I do have a whole bunch of stuff that adds nothing to my life.

      It was a pretty great opportunity over at Phroogal 🙂

  4. Love this list! I think way too many people participate in mindless consumerism. While I love shopping, I always try to go about it mindfully. I don’t have place for clutter in my life. It takes up too much energy!

    • Clutter is the ultimate consumer of time, space, mental energy, you name it. Seriously, when we first moved into our house, I burst into tears because I thought it was too small. Then my mother kindly reminded me that I previously only had one room when I lived at home. It’s definitely a “stuff” issue, not a house issue.

  5. Love it! I am guilty of more than a few of the things on this list. I decluttered my living room during the weekend and now I am going to work on the bedroom. But I know why I have soooo much crap, it is because I think of the when. When I lose weight I will fit in this or when I was younger this was my favorite stuffed doll. I need to get over the when and focus in the now or I will continue to have stuff I never use.
