So, are you a minimalist? Do you hate clutter and voluntarily live with less? I made the jump and have not looked back. Its refreshing not having so much junk to think about. My overprotection tendencies also do not kick in as much as they used to.

Laptop, futon, clothes, dishes, books, books, books, chair. I might be classified as an extreme minimalist! Although it's not that I make an effort to be one.

Nope. I have a ton of stuff - posters on every wall, DVDs, blankets, pillows, action figures, plushies, makeup, jewelery, shoes and art supplies. I have an average amount of clothes though.

Kind of. I don't like spent my money. When I want to buy something, I think so much about it that I finished by not buy it because there are always more "cons" than "for". So I don't have a lot of things.

I can easily live with only what I actually need, and there was a time years ago when I had only my seabag of clothes, my tools, my guitar and a typewriter. However, I presently have much more than that and mostly because I either cannot or will not get rid of stuff I have since accumulated and at least somebody somewhere could use.

Depends. I'm generally a minimalist, but I have hundreds of cds or books.

I'd like to be, but I'm constantly surrounded by clutter. I never buy anything so I don't know where it comes from. :)

I think that I like things to be orderly. I sometimes wonder if when things are a mess whether it mirrors my internal state, seems mostly true.

I chose reasonable even though I'm not always. i can be very insistent about getting clutter out of my sight. It causes me a great deal of anxiety and makes my OCD worse. I didn't select the severe one though because I have more than a hundred things. I mean if you count all the dishes and books and tools, etc. It takes a lot to run a house and entertain the brain monster.

Hmm, I was going to say "yes" until I read the thread.

I'm a bit fan of "keep it simple, stupid", but as far as personal posessions go, I have quite a lot.

Though most of them are related to collections. I think if you took away my music, my books, my movies, and my videogames, my bedroom would be quite empty.
