I unfortunately have this struggle to what I might consider an extreme. One thing turns into another, and soon I have things I don't actually use. It primarily involves food, which is very wasteful. Every month or so I dedicate time to cleaning out my cupboards and donating the unused canned goods to our local food pantry.
It doesn't help me either that I have a family who does this -- my mother is especially guilty of such things, and it has spread onto me. I become frustrated by consumer culture because when I feel upset, I go to browse stores and come in with something. I often feel rude and impolite to just leave a store without buying something. I wonder if this is a thing others also experience.
It's difficult, too, because I am not financially very well-off, yet still fall victim to these sorts of schemes. However, I admire you very much for becoming mindful of these things. Awareness is one step closer to being able to solve the problem at hand.
Here is mine...my desk is very messy. And nowhere near as refined as everyone else's
