This week we are talking about wants versus needs, especially when you live in an Airstream. This was an important distinction to make for us when we decided to downsize and live full-time in our Airstream. We went from 1600 sqft to 200 sqft. With only so much room and storage, we had to figure out what we truly NEEDED and make sure we had that, before worrying about the things we wanted. This is also important in terms of our budget. We make sure to separate the spending on needs (like groceries) versus wants (like restaurants) because if we need to cut costs the needs stay and the wants go.
