My things

Things are just a means to an end

I record all the physical things I own. Physical possessions come with a cost, including space and portability.

By recording what I own / posses. I can :

  • Weigh up its functionality vs cost.

  • Plan when I need new things.

  • Know when to replace things and minimize ownership.
