You see, I think some people have way too many of them —like those people who can't put another thing in their garage or their closets, or those people who have so many things that they have to rent a storage place to put their extra things in.

When I moved houses recently, I had to decide what to do with many of the things I'd accumulated since my last move. Boy, oh boy! That's when I realized I had indeed become one of "those people"—a thing collector!

I think a lot of the problem is due to the culture of materialism that has flooded the earth. In some places, if you watch any amount of TV or listen to the radio or read magazines, you are bombarded with commercial advertisements about all the latest and greatest things you need to buy.

Electronic equipment, for example. As soon as a thinner TV or laptop or cell phone comes out, everybody wants it, and all the perfectly good fatter ones end up in the garage or closet with everything else.

There are other downsides to this thing mentality too. For one, you can lose appreciation for the value of the things you have if you have too many of them.

If you happen to recognize the symptoms of this too- many-things malady in your life, as I did, don't worry. There is a cure, at least on a personal level. You can take a serious look at all the things you have, decide which you use and really need, and give the rest away. You can give those extras to charity or a needy neighbor or friend.
