I used to not have a home, but I wasn't homeless. I just travelled and worked and housing in most places was provided or I worked onboard boats. That sort of thing. I had a friend who never moved out of the town we grew up in ask me once about where I keep all of my stuff and I told her I didn't have anything that I couldn't pack up and carry with me. She looked at me like I was completely batshit insane. In my opinion, the more you have, the more you have to worry about.
Since getting married a couple of years ago I've settled down quite a bit and now my husband and I have *gasp* a rented storage locker. Mostly he stores his tools there, but I never in my wildest thoughts would have imagined paying rent to store "stuff".
Our mid-term goal is to buy a smallish RV and travel and work our way around the U.S. and if it won't fit in the RV then we have to get rid of it. I cannot wait!
kiss = keep it simple, sister!
