If money was no object, how many homes would you accumulate, how many cars, how many pairs of shoes, how many of anything?

One large-ish house, one decent car, 10 cats, and one kick-ass supercomputer.

...and probably a lot of guns, if I was living in Texas.

I think it'd be most beneficial for me to possess as little as I can. An issue with modern society is that everything is so abundant yet not distributed evenly. I'd probably only keep the things I know I need to use.

I think I'd want to own a lot of things so that I could give them to people that happen to be less fortunate. I think I'd also want to own a lot of stuff that help whole communities (e.g. libraries, museums)

I sound really self-righteous but that's my honest answer ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I would own one house or/and a private island, or Buy a ton of blocks/block of house ( all the house ) and put the rent at pretty low prices. Car wise i can't even drive and care little about cars or owning an expensive one, but i would probably go for a reliable long lasting expensive car . Maybe fund a few hobbies i wanna start and start becoming self-sufficient; beekeeping and growing a farm. being a minimalist i dont care much about material things, and at this moment theres very few things i need or even want.

Its only stuff. I would reroof my house, spend a bit on the garden and redecorate upstairs. Then I would set up a business and travel.

I get little or no pleasure from stuff.

I'd have one big main family home - 2 kitchens (one main and one for my baking), enough bedrooms for kids to have their own plus 2 guest bedrooms, an indoor pool would be nice and a cinema room, and then all the other basic home stuff like dining room, living room etc. Would like my fiance to be able to have a "man cave" where he can keep his guns and other stuff like that.

I'd like a cabin in the middle of nowhere where we can go for weekends away, and a holiday home in Italy (never been but I want to and I doubt I wouldn't like it!)

My fiance would have his truck of course, I'd have a small car because I can hardly drive as it is, and then another car good for driving in snow and ice.

Shoes, well. I'd like the house to have a walk-in wardrobe solely for shoes. Idk how many pairs that would be!

I'd like a nice home, and another property somewhere nice where I could go on holiday. But if I had money I'd want to give back.. so I'd let families stay in the holiday cottage when I wasn't there, for free, who couldn't otherwise have afforded it.

One car is fine.

I'd like nice clothes, but wouldn't go over the top.

I'm not hugely materialistic and would rather have memories than things, but I would still treat myself to some nice things, and would definitely treat my family as much as I could, too.

I'd buy lots of houses and rent them out.

I don't like lots of 'stuff' because I don't like clutter. I'd buy lots of vintage sylvanian families to complete my collection though.

I already have 15 guitars and 8 amps but I imagine that'd be where I spent it
