galt67: I don't know about many of you, but after food, clothes, shelter, and transport, well, I don't 'need'
that much stuff. Yes-I've had alot of 'stuff' in the past but 'the more stuff you have, the more stuff
you have to worry about'.

Boy do I ever agree with you there! Go through a couple of hurricanes where you have to pack up your entire house into bags and you will be surprised how little your stuff means to you. We pack up less and less every time.

Before moving here to company housing, we had a 3200 square foot home with a 3 car garage on 4.5 acres near Philadelphia. Now we live in a tiny 3 bedroom prefab house with a shed. Had to leave a bunch of stuff behind. It was hard at first but got easier with each day.

I don't know that I ever want to own my own home again. Been there, done that. This is so much easier.
