    Yeah, because when you just try living without furniture, it turns out it’s totally unnecessary* AND there’s probably a lot more room to play fetch with the dog in the living room.

    *Just only have dogs over as guests!

    I love when people ask questions about “these days” that betray a complete ignorance of history. This persistent notion that homeownership is something EVERYONE used to achieve is … well, it’s a testament to the power of compelling fiction. :-)

    Re: furniture: we took years to furnish our apartment, and we still ended up with things that we’ll ultimately discard. Sometimes you just gotta live with (or without) stuff to understand your real needs.

    “when does the government stop taking social security” – for me, it was your answer “When you no longer draw one.” But it felt like the answer was when my pay comes from a pension rather than a paycheck. My crappy part-time low-pay last job had almost exactly the same gross as my pension, but my pension net pay is so much higher because they no longer take out:
    * social security
    * pension fund contribution
    * half my insurance premium (my institution pays the full amount for the employee if you have 40 hours or are retired and half the amount if you have less than 40 but at least 20–I wish they would have paid 3/4 when I had 30 hours)
