I don't want more stuff in my life. Only trips, experiences, good food, etc. Maybe explore new music and musicians but I don't think that takes much space these days to download on a ipod.

Peony scented candles and lotions from B & B. One could never have too much of either.

Sea glass and shells from the beach. Always a thrill to find something cool.

I love my books as well but after a lot of hand wringing was able to pare down our library to absolute favorites. There are still more than enough to catch dust, but I don't care. A home isn't a home without books! I haven't bought any books for a few years, instead preferring to check out new ones at the library.

Years ago we started collected DVDs of our favorite British shows. Before streaming, buying DVDs from AmazonUK was the only way to see many of the shows. We still buy a few that we cannot get via streaming, but it's only a very few. I like having them available in DVD form for whenever I want to see them. They are the only thing that we will continue to collect. I don't feel so guilty buying them because I give them to hubby as Christmas presents and vice versa -- easy shopping and we're both happy.

Old fishing lures. Not antique lures to be displayed, but old lures no longer made that I can fish with.
