When you think “something is wasteful”, you need to consider what you should do. I tended to keep things because “it is wasteful to throw them away”. I have changed to this; I want to give them to those who can use them because “not useing is wasteful”. If you took stuff’s position, you would feel it would be better.
However I can’t throw away many things. The things came out miraculously again enters in many cases. For example, when giving old clothes to the bazzar I was given old clothes from my sister and I gave vegetables, a neighbbor presented with vegetables within the day. So I thought, “Is the total amount at my house constant?”
If I lost every thing, will I be able to remember all the things I had at my house? Probably not. I think that it is things that are not needed which will be forgotten and others will be remembered.
