Sadly enough, most of us have developed the mindset that we never have enough. And when it comes to your home, having this type of mindset could turn your home into a cluttered mess. Members in my own family have been quite guilty of this, and it can be for various reasons. Some people I know, every time they plan to have guest over they just feel the need to add something new to the home for the sake of keeping it updated. I don't see the problem with doing this on some yearly occasion. The problem is when one feels the need to do this again and again depending on how often they have guest come over. A better approach could be replacing some worn down recliner chair with a new one instead of just adding a whole new addition to your home.
There is no problem on doing some re-touching or adding some new additions to keep the house looking nice. However, at some point we should take a step back and ask ourselves "Do I really need to add this to the home? Will there be enough room?" If most of us can do this we can problem take a second glance at our home and realize that everything is just fine the way it is for now at least. By doing this you may just end up with more open space in certain rooms and have saved some money to spend on slightly more important things such as bills and food. And once again you'll come to see that when it comes to setting up the interior of your home...less is more!
