It’s a sickness. Hoarding devalues the old while placing temporary satisfaction with what is new or recently consumed.

Hoarding whets the appetite for more.

Hoarding creates collections of insignificance. Napster devalued music. It was all about downloading and filling up external hard drives, 80% of which you never even listened to.

The hoarding habit undervalues goods.

Do you really need more stuff? Probably not, unless of course you frequently use what you buy or you’re an investor.

If you’re not willing to share or sell something in the future, it’s probably not worth consuming in the first place.
