  1. Hey Tony:

    This post resonates in so many ways with my own thoughts. Figuring out what “enough” is for your own self truly does make room for a lifestyle that includes a great deal of meaning and richness and depth.

    It frees you from having to join in the chase for more as well.

    Acquiring more and more stuff has never been easier, I suppose, and that may be why it becomes even more important to be mindful of when you’re already “full-up.”

    Thank you for pointing that out.

    1. Thanks for your comment Netta. It’s great to realize when you can take your foot off the gas pedal, cruise and enjoy the fruits of your labor if even just for a short time.

  2. This post is interesting. Just enough for me would be the gadgets or clothes or any other personal items that I would carry with me in case I am traveling for a week or two. Those are essentials. But after that limit is crossed, rest are all good to have but not really required.

    1. Thank for your comment Jaan. Traveling light has many advantages. Most anything you may need can be picked up at your destination.

  3. I love this post and it was very thought provoking as I thought about purchases I have made over the last week or so. I truly believe in the power of experiences over the purchasing of “stuff”. Do you believe the questions you ask before a purchase allows you to notice the difference between wanting and needing that item?

    1. Thanks for your comment Claire. The questions I ask and the time delay I impose be buying anything over $50 helps me avoid the impulse by and saves me money.

    2. Thanks for your comment, Claire. Yes, the questions I ask before making a purchase makes a difference. I usually realize I really don’t need the item. I sometimes buy because I am bored or want to experience the quick high of making a purchase.
