Even though it brings me joy, it is not a necessity. It's just a want.

The last time I ate in a restaurant was the night of March 13th. But here is the thing — I LOVE restaurants. I. Love. Food. I am by no means happy about this declaration. But we are at-risk for complications, and in a dangerous part of the country (in a dangerous part of the world), so we just cook at home for peace of mind (and thankfully we aren’t so bad at it.) Here are some delicious Indian food condiments from one of the four nights in the last six months that we have ordered takeout, condiments I don’t have the skill to make myself, which reminds me of what valuable things we learn from others when we share in their cuisines. I can’t wait to safely eat in a restaurant again.

Frivolous things like clothes, there’s a lot I can live without but clothes pretty sum up the biggest thing that I can cut back on getting.

Something I can live without but I really don't want to! Pasta and wine! la vita è migliore con buon cibo, buon vino e buoni amici.

tranger off the net: Makeup is something that’s not entirely necessary because it’s not supposed to be used to change the way you look but to enhance the features you ready have.

One can live without many things, even food for a relatively long period of time. But without saying water, food, time or my phone which seem to be the obvious but still good answers, I would have to say Coffee.  Much is said about how Americans, or this world runs on coffee and in I can mostly agree. I have this item not because of myself but because of the people I love with, so I can't get rid of it. Feeling like you need or you can't function is just plainly unhealthy not physically but mentally. Of course like other addictions coffee is often compared to being one. I never thought it to be of any importance until just taking notice of waste does from coffee alone. And being around family who's "need" for it is stronger than water, that being the first of importance in staying alive, is very alarming to me. Practically anything can become an addiction, just maybe if that itself was an item I think could all be good without that. Just trying to fill ourselves up with things that cannot.  Nothing deep but many realize these things.

I love music and i agreed the statement that the music is life but i can live without it ...when people listen music, they feel sth in their mind base on the kinds of melody like that, I love to feel the nature everything in the physical world rather than it . And then also you can creat your own art 😊and i had tried to live without music for one week in my life thats why i can say that i can live without it.

I can live without my watch which means without time. I think life could be simpler if we try to live like the rest of the nature.

i can live without coffee. after being a barista for three years i was diagnosed with a chronic pain condition that required me to cut out caffeine. it can be done, but i still miss it. the good news is that new rituals can and do replace the old, no matter what is being made to shift.

I can live without shoes that were never meant for a woman to work in. I prefer to treat these as the decorations that they were meant to be, perfect for a window sill.

What I have recently learned I can live without is various holiday decorations. Most people I know decorate their home for Christmas, but my mother always decorated our home for each holiday growing up (Valentines, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Summer, 4th of July, Fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving) , and when I became an adult I thought I should continue that tradition. I inherited many of her decorations and purchased many new decorations as well. I have now gone a whole year without ever unpacking the boxes of decorations for every holiday other than Christmas. I realized I was just planning on decorating for holidays because it's what I thought good moms/wives were supposed to do - not because it actually brought me joy. As such, I have a garage full of holiday decorations, sorted by holiday, that I find I can (and have) lived without for over a year, and I am a calmer, happier person because of it.

My wife sends her work clothes. She’s been working from home since March and hasn’t worn khakis in so long they have dust on them.

Mine is my nails. The only way they grow is if I have them done. I miss it but I can do without.

What does the hoarder ask?  What is the value of something we no longer use?  Are memories enough to keep it, or is the memory enough without it?  What is the value of the small possibility that we might use it again, and does that outweigh the cost of clutter? Will I be happier if it is used by someone else?  What regret will I experience if I give it away, only to decide soon thereafter that I want to use it again? Will I want it back for no reason other than "it is mine."
