If you throw everything away you will need to pay some money later to get a thing that you used to have. BUT it probably won't be very much money. Because you won't be paying for ALL of the items you got rid of, just for a few of them. So you aren't paying to get the item that you used to own. You're paying for the convenience of storing the item at the store, not in your home.

That's an excellent way to look at it. I think it'll help me let go of some of this stuff (we actually pitched a bunch of my lumber collection this morning).

- Accept that you can't do everything.

Another excellent piece of advice. While I accept it in theory, in practice I think "just a few more weeks and I'll get to it." But that's probably how this problem started. You should see me "to read" pile.

Thanks for the insights, Megan!
