Tough question. The older I get the less I care about things. Sure there are a few things I treasure, but they tend to be inexpensive items with sentiment or longevity that makes them special to me. We've sold many items without any regret, though they seemed important once.
We loved sailing, but after 35 years sailing and 22 years of boat expenses, it wasn't worth it to us anymore. It was a 33 footer, and it was our #1 spending expense. And we sold it last Dec, no regrets (at least me, DW not quite as sure).
What I like the most is probably what's left on my bucket list. None are things, they're all experiences or personal goals. I've completed about 70, and most were exhilarating in their time, but I don't spend much time thinking about what was. So the 50 or so items left to go, are the most fun things in my life. And the list is dynamic, it will never be completed...so many experiences to look forward to.
