What do you usually stash in your house?

How do you usually manage your house space in Vanilla?
I would like to hear some advice from someone more expert than me on what to keep and what to sell.
-which artifacts (let's say, body armors, or light sources) do you keep and which do you consider obsoletes? For example, there are many artifact armors that look quite similar...
-which consumables do you save for the final battle? Potions of restore mana, banishment, healing means, et cetera?

I usually only keep 2 types of things:

1) Consumables for the final fight (!RestoreMana, !Healing, !*Healing*, ?Banishment, ?MassBanishment)

2) Artifacts that are high-end that I am not currently using right now because doing so would remove one key resist or ability that I currently can't live without but will regain in the future.

What about !Life? Are they too rare to use a slot for because you never find much?

What about !speed? I guess classes that get the haste spell wouldn't need them, but I would think it would be worth keeping for other classes.

What about ?Teleport and ?TeleLevel?

Also, I often want to keep a good *slay dragon* weapon for when I get to dl60-something to fight wyrms. (I'm pretty sure I have one in my home in the Donk game.)

I also have trouble deciding what is worth keeping whenever I get far enough to find several artifacts. (I've never gotten to the final battle, not even with save scumming or wizard mode. I'll get back to that Donk game soon. Or I may start a different wizmode game so I can play with a non-buggy set of randarts.)

I keep consumables, (!heal and such) until I need them, I usually keep heal on hand once I go passed 50 or 60 just because it helps a lot.

I also keep potentially useful ego's, wands, scrolls, and such that I can't or don't want to use yet.

Ego ammo (bolts/arrows) in case I find a good launcher or need them. And finally good high cash value weapons if the weapon shop has a low gold count. Although those are the first things sold when I need more space or when gold is too plentiful to worry about hoarding weapons.

In the beginning I keep a lot of junk in there because money burns a hole in my pocket and I don't delve fast... so extra WoR, potions of restore stats, extra phase door and teleport and ccw, sometimes even food if I'm feeling especially paranoid. The only interesting thing in my early home is I keep items that confuse and blind and paralyze my character, to see if what he's wearing protects against those before major identify is available.

In the end-game my house is usually overflowing with wearables that cover various resists, just-in-case. There are also my major healing potions and mushrooms of restoration and *id* scrolls, but if it's just about time to fight Morgy and Sauron and the other deepest baddies I will probably have a stockpile of berserk strength/heroism potions, resistance potions and holy chant and protection from evil scrolls and perhaps some rune of protection scrolls.

I usually stock up on the restore potions, because I loathe recalling back to town with an abysmal drained stat only to find that the appropriate restore potion isn't currently in stock. I also keep resist-granting gear so I can swap it in when necessary, and various mushrooms because I'm a fungophile (in ToME, my homes often become pet houses for all my named symbiotes).

I stash heal pots, restore stat pots, and any artifacts I might conceivably use later. I sell (or, more likely, just junk) everything else.
