I'm now at the point where I'm happy with the amount I have. everything is organized and in place and I know exactly where to go to find something. now what's important is keeping it that way. and I find by curbing consumerism you minimize the chance of getting out of control again. for eg I'll be traveling soon and have got a new carry on case however small things I would normally go out to buy like travel size bottles are a no no. if I look around I have lots of creams, cosmetics etc already in small enough jars and bottles. so I make sure to use them up, wash out the bottle and refill it with what I want to take away with me. sounds like a little effort but it's already 5 less dust collectors I have refused to fill my home with.
