Call You and Yours: Have you reached peak stuff?

Consumer affairs programme. Tell us your stories about living with less or more.

Today we want to know if you're at peak stuff?
As you recover from all that turkey and tinsel - we want to know if you think you've got too many material things.
Figures from Barclaycard suggest that we now prefer to buy an experience - dinner out or a trip to the theatre rather than physical stuff. Their data shows that spending on entertainment, from concerts to pubs, rose by 10 per cent in 2017. That compares with a 3 per cent fall in spending at department stores.
Do you want to live with less? Perhaps you've already ditched the clutter? Tell us if you regret throwing something away. Get in touch too if you're someone who likes to keep everything - and it all has meaning.

Email youandyours@bbc.co.uk and leave a phone number so we can call you back.

Presenter: Peter White
Producer: Jess Quayle.
