Minimalism vs hoarding


Moving house makes you realise how much stuff you've acquired.  I really want to live in an uncluttered house, with only the things I need. But this desire to be a minimalist is at complete odds with my hoarder tendencies. I find it so hard to throw things away.

This is an old Lomo shot of my Oma's 'museum' which housed her salt and pepper shaker, egg cup, money box and tin collections. Amongst the other minor collections of things like toys, china, National Geographics and the like. You see - it's in my genes.
