Everyone has a different relationship with how much stuff is too much. Some people feel good with more stuff, while others feel better in a sparser environment. There is no rule on how much is too much. It’s important to know for yourself what that comfort level is.
There’s a misconception that too much stuff means you’re a hoarder. There's another misconception that a minimalist doesn't have clutter. That's not necessarily true either. It’s relative to each person.
