More Stuff, More Hassle, More Cost?
There are a lot of people who keep advising me to move to a bigger house. There are many reasons why I do not want to do this, but one of them is the cost of hassle of having more things. I think that if we have more space to put things then we will accumulate more. This creates more hassle than people realise. Think about how much time we spend tidying and cleaning as well as worrying about where to put things or what to do with things. With less stuff, we would not have this hassle and with no space to put things we cannot buy more. Hearing someone complain about the cost of their motorhome repair made me wonder whether it really was worth the hassle. It might be nice to get away from it all, but if you have to do a job you do not like to be able to afford it and then worry about maintaining an extra vehicle, does it actually add more stress or take it away?
