Thank you! I think that excessive consumption is a way to feel satisfaction, even though pragmatically speaking it is not necessary. Reminds of Fromm, "To be or to have", if I remember the title correctly.

I am allergic to shopping and have little apparel - my kit is all falling apart so a late night visit to M&S is now unavoidable.

Mrs MOCS has much clobber - I threaten to bin everything less than size 16 - she starts shouting. Why?

I have five or six huge bags of clothes to unpack. They probably won't fit in my closets. So I'm waiting to order my dresser. Then my aunt will come over and help me unpack. She has low blood pressure. She wasn't feeling well last time. So we are going to give away half the clothes. I won't be a real minimalist, but it suffices.

Thanks! By general rule, I donate any clothes that are too large. It's the opposite of typical advice to get rid of your thin clothes, but it works for me.

I have a huge handbag collection. Those are keepers. =]
