Having previously lived in 2 bedroom apartments, our move to a 3 bedroom house with an office and formal front room leaves us swimming in space and I like it. Things that I'd held onto for the last 6 years, cramming it into closets, thinking I'd use it when I had the space, I realize I don't need. We have 3 beds in the moon room that are great when we have guests. The closet in there was full of stuff. Stuff I don't even know why we needed. But it's slowly going away. Sometimes it's going to the trash. But mostly to the thrift store in the hope that someone else will want/use it.
My goal for that closet is for it to become full of food. It's got 40 boxes of cereal in there now. Still a lot of stuff, but I realize I'd rather have food than stuff. So as things go on BOGO sale, I'll buy all they have, and then get a rain check for more. And buy more the next month. Not everything. But things we actually use. Or things that will keep for 30 years if we don't use them.
