Stuff has a place in our world and in your life. Objects matter beyond their utility. Caring about things is not wrong. Your stuff helps you make sense of the world. Stuff connects you to people — to your past, present, and future. Stuff provides beauty, meaning, and experience. Stuff helps you remember and share. There’s a difference between mindless consumption and the way you feel. Value what you have. Buy only what you love. Savor what you own. Allow your things to enrich your life. Choose gratitude over guilt. Know that the things you love do matter.
