While having “stuff” can be helpful to our daily routine, having too much stuff can be stressful and hinder us from our goals. It is stressful due to the space all that extra stuff is taking up in your home, the extra time it takes to keep it clean and organized, and the extra work that it will take to move it. It also costs more money because you have bought more stuff (obviously), but also because you have more stuff to maintain, fix, and/or replace.
