I agree wholeheartedly, but as a packrat, I have to add this - make sure
that junk and "someday-useful" parts don't take over your life. I've had
garages full of borderline useful odds and ends at various points in my
life, and have found a lot of happiness (and family tranquility, if not
necessarily bliss) by simplifying.
I've found that this simple rule has helped a lot - I collect, but
anything that I've not made use of in the past year, I find a new home
for, giving things away as necessary. If I'm not using something and it
still has life in it, it needs to go to someone who will benefit.
