There's a great deal to be said for the lack of stuff. My early 20's are referred to as the "I remember when" days and the only thing I miss, other than being just 22, is the simplicity of daily life. I was sooo broke, working 2 jobs but the days were full of simple pleasures and simple choices.
I have a younger brother who has gone over the edge w/resentment for my traveling but won't let go of his acquisition of stuff, even tho' it's taken over his life. He's in the middle of building a 40x60 outbuilding for add'l storage...bldg will have HVAC, bath, etc. so while he's out looking at his "stuff" he can be comfy
