Rob Zseleczky on clutter and stuff

My friend Rob Zseleczky shares an insight:

I need less crap, even if it’s great crap.
I know what he means: I pass up books that I would’ve bought without hesitation in years past. Can get from library, says my interior monologue. I too need less crap, even if it’s great crap.

I have the same hesitation, but it breaks down when the local library doesn't have a copy, and "Oh look, amazon has a used copy for $1" (plus $4 shipping, of course).

What I find much harder than not accumulating crap is getting rid of what I already have. How does one learn to let go of stuff?
