11. It can be a revelation. We are programmed to buy buy buy.

I have a hoarder in my family and I see the same tendencies in myself, so in recent years I've made an effort to buy less and recycle more. I regularly clean out my closets and donate things to thrift stores. I sell my books at a used bookstore and get store credit to buy more. I have more energy and feel happier with less clutter around me.
