Traveling (& Living) Light – How Many Things Do You Own?

Like most backpackers, I travel light. But I still have “stuff” at home, but slowly shedding some of the “items” (my car is still for sale if you’re looking for a Civic in Seattle). Prior to leaving, I gave my sister and brother-in-law my Foreman grill, vacuum, and bedroom set (they are just finishing up a major remodel of their house). Over the past couple days, my brother-in-law and I traded a few emails and he sent me this link wondering if I was aiming to be like Andrew Hyde (pictured below). Andrew owns only 15 items!

I haven’t counted, but I would guess I’m traveling (read: living) with about 50 items between my two backpacks (and yes I also have a MacBook Air and iPhone).

How many things do you own?
