Yes, in the past it has, and that's one of the reasons I decided sadly to stop going to tag/garage sales and thrift stores on a regular basis. I found I had triplicates of lots of things that were taking up space and cost me $ over time. I can already see the results and the added benefit is that it's is getting much easier to clean the house with less stuff around. Something to be said for simplicity. Next step, if I can work on now recruiting the family to help clean also, housekeeping will get even easier. My fault, I should never have automatically signed up for everything when I first got married, like I was the wife/ maid. Ooops, sorry, a little bit of oversharing for a moment.
I'm trying to get lots more pleasure from my garden, and the added benefit of gardening is that you can have a collection of various plants, but the collection is outside, not taking up space in the home. A win win situation.
