Meanwhile I bring my lunch most days. I eat dinner out 2-3 times a month. I eat lunch out about once a week. My clothes come from: Marshalls, Target, LLBean and occasionally Walmart. I drive a 6 year old Toyota Tacoma that I paid for 4 years ago. My only debt is my mortgage @ 2.375% fixed interest rate for the next 9 years. I am liquid.

I couldn’t spend 1.2 trillion dollars in my entire life if I tried much less every year.

Like when a parent or aunt/uncle pass and you are the one to sort through the "stuff" they leave behind. I don't want my daughter to have to go through that.

I had to do it with my m-i-l and I am bound and determined to NOT leave my kids the same mess.

It's hard though.

Jobs will be automated. It's been that way for hundreds of years. The first cotton gin, for example.

Driverless and other vehicles are many years away. I'm not convinced they will ever be more than a niche.

Automation, while mainstream, has limits. Auto plants can be automated. There's a window manufacturing plant about a mile away from me that will never be automated, because there are no long, basically identical runs. Much of manufacturing will never be automated.

If the War on Poverty has shown anything, it's the hazard of reward without effort.

Stuff is good. Stuff is great. I want more stuff!

My neighbors stop by when they need stuff...
