Is it primarily a type thing where some people just don't value money and or most possessions as much as others? Or is it just me?
When it comes to materialism theres only two things I own that I wouldn't part with. My car, and my computer. Both I value as key tools that enable me to do what I want when I want. As for the rest, *shrugs* if someone I knew mentioned in passing that they needed something, and I had it chances are I'd give them mine. I just don''t really seem to care, if I ever need it again I'll replace it.
The same goes for money, the only time I'm concerned with money is when what I make doesn't cover what I need, otherwise I could care less as to whether I'm rich or poor. I'll lend money to people who need it not really caring if they give it back or not.
