Now, let's move on the next topic!

How does it work? Write a quality opinion/comment on this topic and we will choose 3 random winners to win 3,000 points each! (No need to post your own Topic)

Our question this week is: If you gave up most material possessions and had a minimalist lifestyle, do you think you’d be happy? Why or why not? (Minimalism is a lifestyle in which you reduce your possessions to the least possible, and live with only the bare essentials)

Ground Rules: Open to AU and NZ members only. Each week, the TolunaTeamAUNZ will create a topic on the AU and NZ sites regarding a specific theme, and ask members to provide their opinion. Three winners will be selected from each Australia and New Zealand to win 3,000 points. Winners will be chosen at random from all eligible posts. Eligible posts must be in compliance with the Toluna Member Code of Conduct. Winners will be announced within 2 weeks from launch of Topic, and bonus points credited to member accounts via direct credit.

I'm not really a materialistic person so loosing these items won't do much to my happiness.

If other aspects of my life were going well, especially relationships, family, work and finances, then material possessions wouldn't be important.

I don't think it would be too bad., perhaps tough at first but you would get used to it. I think it would be quite liberating and provide the opportunity for open ended travel which is probably why I'm attracted to it. (yes I missed out on the backpacker thing when I was younger)

No, I am so used to the luxuries in my lifestyle I know I just wouldn't be content. I could reduce my standard of living, but that is different to a minimalist lifestyle with few possessions. I think we become so used to living with what we have that certain things eg the internet, tv, cars etc are to me really essential and I would be frustrated and bored without them.

I would be happy to live with my family & kids have a peaceful life. I don't need a luxury life.
