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?
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
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.
I spend a lot of time on my technology - Mac, iPad, iPhone, etc., it is probably the main reason the switch to atheism occurred because of finding like minded souls on Facebook. So technology including the internet is definitely something I wouldn't want to live without, but I could if I had to.
