I am steadily untangling myself from five years worth of accumulated 'stuff'. It is exhausting and trying but like letting go of your vices, I think it will be worth it in the end. I need to make some big trips to the Salvation Army, the scrapyard, and the dump in the next couple weeks.
The majority of 'stuff' is leftover from various projects that were started at one time or another, many while I was in a state of mania. During those times it was not uncommon to have four, five, or six intensive projects going on at one time. When you inevitably crash, they remain in an unfinished state. It would probably serve me well to resist the urge to start a new project before I have finished the old one. That way things may be more manageable; a recipe for sanity.
