    room in my smallish car.

    As to why do we have so much stuff:   Because it is there and we can?  Or maybe because it is there and we are all brainwashed into it from TV with sometimes 8 or more ads per hour?  

    OTOH there are hoarders who have a psychological compulsion to hoard stuff they will never use.  And in that vein: why do so many of us have a box filled with rubber bands?

    One of the things about age: most of us with a certain number of years start divesting ourselves of "stuff".  Maybe in preparation for a clean get away?  

    In today's world a car full wouldn't hack it.  OTOH a carfull would be just fine for subsistance living.  There are a lot of people who live out of there cars...
