I certainly enjoy living in a house that has a sense of calm, organisation and order about it. I personally don't think there is nothing wrong about having a lot of stuff, as long as you can place, tidy and organise your belongings in a practical and functional way that wont ultimately turn you into the world's worst hoarder. When I personally received gifts that I didn't like, I would either give them to charity or just pass them onto someone who would appreciate it. In the grand scale of things, you're not actually going to take anything with you when you kick the bucket!
