Throughout our lives we are surrounded with items. The majority of them have little or no meaning for us, but now and again an item becomes special.
There are many reasons.
An item might bring back forgotten memories, it might have significant financial value, it might have been given to us by someone important, or it might make us feel good simply by owning it.
It’s natural that we want to keep those items... but what happens when the habit of holding on to the them gets out of control?
