Much truth here. I would just say check your punctuation. Word can help with that if you have it.

I clicked too soon. I also would leave off the first paragraph and first sentence in para. 2. I kind of liked the ending.
I can definitely identify with the dilemma of accumulated stuff, which I have yet to prioritize the time to go through... I like your ending.
You make some great points. I saw a bit of myself in your words for sure. I bet if you went back and counted all the exclamation points, you'd be surprised. In a piece this size, you should only have one or two at the most, best placed in dialog. Instead of using punctuation, allow your excellent word choice to do the exclaiming for you. It's so easy to let possessions become too important in our lives. Your message is a good one that most of us can relate with. Nice job.
