Quote of the Day
I've had my "stuff" in storage since I sold my house a couple of years ago. I've been crashing at my parents house helping them out, but recently my brother and his wife and my parents put a deposit down on a house being built that has a suite apartment for my parents. While at their house, I had minimal "stuff", basically my clothes and my computer, tablet, and phone. No bills except for my car insurance on a 2007 sports car, and my storage unit.
I found I really liked the simplicity of not having much "stuff".
