What is one material thing that you wouldn't want to live without?

I'm not much of a collector of things. I donate them or throw them away (depending on what) when I no longer need them. Not into buying a lot of stuff, but there are a few things I am a little attached to.

What luxury item would you have trouble doing without?

Don't know if this counts - but I think the internet is pretty much indispensable. It has shaped our thoughts, opinions, and consciences through podcasts, videos, and forums like this one.


Plus, fact-checking has gotten a lot easier!

That's a great answer. At one time people had pen pals. I have made friends around the world.

I suppose my computer, though it's kind of a necessity — but I do use it for frivolous things like watching Netflix, so I guess it qualifies as a luxury item.

Never use it at home. It is only for guests. Soap and water in the shower is much more sanitary.

@daddy4pugs: or a bidet?

A good cooking knife. I prefer my Damascus knife.

The question is hard to answer ... if a disaster would happen and I could only get one thing with me...it would probably get a crossword puzzle book or my Sandman graphic novels


Most of my stuff is second hand, I consider myself a minimalist, but what did I buy myself that could be considered luxury, but I will never regret buying, my semi-professionnal camera, you really need those kind of camera if you really want to be in control of your pictures, I did found used lens in a garage sale for 20$ (I used an adapter to make them fit)


I think an object that give you the opportunity to have a hobby or do something you love you could not do without this object, it's not luxury


I always felt that finding something used that I like in a garage sales far more rewarding , give me more joy, than buy brand new stuff ,
plus, it always comes with a story smile001.gif

Me too! People who don't use earplugs don't realize how great they are! We should start a new group 'Atheists for earplugs!' LOL!

If I wear earplugs- I'm not sure I'll wake up!

Hahaha -- @Hugene2002 I'm all for that new group. smile002.gif

Health, basic cognitive function, and family I don't consider material, so....I can't think of anything quite that important.

Since I taught kids with physical and mental disabilities, I used to tell people very often that they should be very happy that they have typical kids who do not have the same problems. Mental disabilities cause so much frustration for kids and makes their lives very difficult. Cognitive problems in anyone interferes with your quality of life.

My luxuries are few but I would have to say books. What does that tell ya!

I think after a good night's sleep, I can tackle just about any problem, so I'd have to vote for my comfortable bed.

Great question. I'd have to say my iPhone because it's got a flashlight. No, I'm just pulling your leg. I've actually given away, trashed, or otherwise lost most of my possessions. The one thing I seem to depend on is a car (of some type). Without that one is nowhere. Currently I have a Ford Van so I can live or camp in the back of it.

I read this question to my wife. She said a fan is nice but I say toilet paper. I said you heard that from me awhile back!!! She said nope. This is my idea and answer. I remember I had told her about having enough toilet paper when going camping and or using the rest room in Vietnam and other countries. Yep, toilet paper is a good answer.
