Last time me and the ex moved, her clothes alone filled a Dodge Dakota to the bedrails
my 'car fixin' stuff took less room but was equally ridiculous, including parts for cars I no longer own
One of the thing I likle about living in a 20 foot TT is that things get cluttered real quick and you go 'oh, too much junk'

I'm 5'10" and fat, my 5' tall 100lb wife has four times the volume of clothing I have.  I just don't get the need for twelve pairs of jeans, 20 tshirts, enough dress clothes to choke a horse.

I own 3 pairs of pants, 3 work shirts, 3 sets of gym clothes, 2 T shirts, that gets me from laundry day to laundry day
I did at one time have a fair bit of clothes, but then started dreaming of a simpler life, and started down sizing, and tossing clothes was the easiest part Big Grin

Just like they say about prison, don't think about how much time you have left, just live day to day and eventually one day it will be over.

Early withdrawal penalty 10% until age 59 1/2.    : (
Depending on circumstances it could be better to have 70% than to have 0%.
If you roll it over into an IRA you can take from it as you need it but it is available.  There are still penalties but only when you actually take it out.

Down to 50, and didn't accomplish a damn thing this week except chase after vans and get frustrated with salesmen.  I didn't think it would be so hard to find someone to take my money. 
I wasn't expecting to buy yet, but my bank dangled an offer I couldn't refuse.  Now I just have to find the right van.

Unless you leave your job after the 1st of the year in which you turn 55 - although at this point I'd give up that 10% before I'd give up another 4 1/2 years.  You can always make more money, but you can't make more time Wink

Felt the same way when we bought our truck, we knew exactly what we wanted and were willing to pay (a reasonable compromise between profit for them and a good deal for us), but they made it so difficult we walked away twice before we ended up buying elsewhere.

I'm the same way with money,  i've never really worried about it and I know i've wasted my fair share (and saved a fair share.)  Can't cry over would have's or should have's.  Gotta figure at the time I spent it, it was exactly what I had wanted.  Wants and needs change over a lifetime, thus so do your belongings.
I've learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life.

a couple more boxes filled, a bit more junk tossed out, a slightly larger path through the house
how and why did i accumulate all this stuff? 
how many coffee mugs does one person need?

I ask my wife that all the time. Got a new one for Christmas, we have larger mugs His (moustache) and Her (pink lip mark) then a bunch of random ones, including plastic travel mugs.

I have been using a 100ah battery exclusively to charge my kindle, phone, hotspot and laptop at home.  I get about a week out of it before I have to recharge.  Next on the agenda is a solar kit and a 12v frig.  I figure I may as well get a handle on my usage and needs now, while it's easier to make adjustments.   And it sure beats hypothetical math.  Some of those energy calculators remind me of junior high algebra.  
I'm surprised the utility companies haven't been out to check their meters.  Between my daughter moving out a few months ago and my downsizing and conserving, their revenues from my address are waaay down.
