Need another excuse to stop buying crap? you'll get thinner

...or at least that's what Peter Walsh claims in his "Does this Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat?" Book

Does this sound familiar:

“All of us deal constantly with the urge to consume more,'’ he writes. “We spend too much, we buy too much, and we eat too much. In the same way we surround ourselves with so much clutter, we overwhelm our bodies with caloric clutter consisting mainly of sugar and fat.” - via Tara Parker-Hope's NYT Health Blog

One thing I strongly disagree with is his insistance that you trash the clutter. Why not give it away? Why not repurpose? Still, the gist of the argument is that less stuff makes you happier and thinner, and I am down with that. Also: richer, I might add.
