    This may sound strange, but I absolutely hate owning things. I find myself constantly trying to get rid of stuff. If it doesn't get used, I sell or give it away. I can't stand having useless trinkets.

    The only thing I've been reluctant to get rid of are my books. I have a ton of them. There are a handful I reread each year—I'd prefer to keep physical copies of those. The rest I probably need to get a Kindle or PDF version of.

    Diagnosing my own situation, I think the mental overhead of owning things often outweighs usefulness.
