An Inventory of my “Stuff”

by Ryan

I don’t really have a lot of stuff with me here in Hawaii. I only brought two backpacks along and have only bought some work clothes, toiletries, food, and a bike since I’ve been here. Well… maybe a few drinks too… Anyways, I thought it’d be fun and insightful to create a list of stuff, much like Baker did over at Man vs Debt.

Now remember, this is only the stuff I have here in Hawaii. I also have some stuff sitting back home in a storage garage, which according to Fiscal Geek, are gateway drugs to your financial ruin… so watch out and don’t start taking lines of storage units!

Anyways… without much further ado… My stuff:

Traveling light with two backpacks.

  • 4 Assorted T-Shirts
  • 4 Polo / Dress Shirts
  • 3 Pairs Shorts
  • 2 Pairs Athletic Shorts
  • 1 Pair Khakis
  • 1 Pair Dress Shoes
  • 1 Pair Sneakers
  • 1 Pair Sandals
  • 6 underwear
  • 5 pairs socks
  • 1 wind breaker jacket

Limitless fun with this.

Gotta love the 10-22 mm wide angle lens!  This image is from a real estate photo business I started, but got bored with.

I’m sure I’m forgetting a few things here, but I’ve got most of it here. If I think of something I’ll update the post.

How much stuff do you have? Can you list it all?

Dude, this is awesome! I’ve been wanting to inventory my stuff for 6+ months now but have yet to start…probably because I have more than 100 things in my closet alone! haha….2010 is going to be the year i clean up more and see what I can eliminate. all good for the soul and mind my friend!

Hey J,
I highly recommend it. Life is so much easier and simple this way… I doubt I’ll ever go back to having my things own me. I honestly feel at peace having a lot less possession as odd as that sounds, probably because it gives me freedom.

Thanks for stoppin by.

This is awesome. I’m just now getting to read it but I love how simply you live. It’s very inspiring.

I am about to inventory all of my stuff–it’s way too much to list here–but hopefully I can get some of it sold or given away that I don’t need.

My biggest thing is where I live there are definitely different seasons and I hate having to have clothes for both. 😉 But I guess that’s what under bed storage is for. 😉

Too much to list! I can’t imagine having only 6 pairs of underwear or five pair of socks or three pair of shoes! LOL…Somehow I think that it may be easier for men to cut down on the wardrobe than women.
