Non minimalism?

What are you NON minimalist about? I'm not asking about what you have trouble/struggles with minimalizing, but what are you purposely and intentionally keeping non-minimalist in your life?

For me, I love houseplants. I have maybe 12 of them, I love growing them, pruning them, feeling the dirt, smelling them, everything about them. While I don't want to go overboard with them, by minimalizing other stuff in the house, I now have room to enjoy and grow them, and time to dedicate to their care.

Another collection I've been slowly expanding is outdoor toys for the kids. They each have 2 'bike' items (trike, scooters, balance bike etc all count as 'bikes'). I'm thinking about geting one of those Cozy Coupes for them to ride together. They also have various balls, yard toys, etc. I feel like this is one area where I want them to have a variety of options to experience.
