OK. Alright then. Can we live on just basics.?

What would yours reveal about you?

What would your basic be lacking in modern options?

What can you do with "basic", that you cannot do present day techy?

:Would you be ultimately happier knowing you aren't bothered by .... ''techy''?

I can do without any of this, d/h can't.

  • How basic?

    I work in Radio/TV, so I'm not likely to do without either. I can do without the computer at home for the most part, and usually do. My son needs it for Word more than I do for anything else. I wouldn't mind dumping the phones and usually do at home. No one in my family texts so we'd be quite happy without that. My husband does need his phone and computer with internet access for work... he's in IT and on 7/24/365 call.

    We have done without the microwave so can if we HAD to. I wouldn't want to do without the alarm system or the automatic sprinkler system. I could do without video games.

    I wouldn't do without gas or electric, and we can't do without our vehicles much as we'd prefer to.
