What do I miss?

The most common question I am asked about our houseless adventure is “What do you miss the most?”.

I really have been thinking about this. When I was in Marietta this week, I drove by the entrance to our neighborhood. I actually asked myself if I wished that I was going back home to my old house. The answer was NO. Honestly, I was surprised. I really don’t miss the house.

But, there is one thing that I do find myself focusing on while in stores. I can’t buy anything. Well, I CAN but I don’t have a need for anything. As many of you know, shopping is a sport and sometimes our entertainment. Of course, that’s why many have so much stuff and SO much debt. I don’t want either of those things.

If you know me, you know I am the queen of finding a great deal. I miss that. Even if something is $1 that should cost $100, I won’t buy it. Why? Because it won’t fit in my 5×8 trailer. Plus, I just don’t buy it if I don’t absolutely need it.

I know this is a good thing but, a girl can still dream about buying that beautiful lamp that would have been perfect for my old living room.

  1. I often think about how little I miss my stuff when I am on vacation. All those boxes of mementos, books, college t-shirts, accesories I never wear…. Easy to leave it behind when you step into a new space.

  2. I’m coming across this same issue. Seven years ago, I sold everything (almost) and started traveling. Then, I bought a house again and started accumulating it all back. Now, I am going to sell the house and hit the road again, but I find I’m still somewhat in the accumulation mode. I’ll look at something (I’m a bit–okay, a lot–of a book hoarder) and have the urge to buy it, but then I’ll realize that I won’t have a place for it soon. It’s sometimes hard to fight that urge. Anyway, thanks for sharing.
