I collect the animal (usualy dog) figures that used to sit atop chainlink gates. I have a hell of a time trying to find them, but they haven given me a new found appreciation for chainlink fence

What's the Weirdest Thing You Collect?

I understand that Americans tend to be space hogs, but I think it's more about what you do with the space than how large it is.

Space does not equal consumption.

The home I share with my partner and 2 dogs is made up of 1500sqft interior and a 1/3 of an acre outside. It may be more than we "need" but it allows us to have ample room for welcoming guests and an expansive garden that supplies us with all the produce we can consume. Oh and the chicken coop that's going up should offer a whole new dimention that would otherwise be very diffcult. All that to say that our space in a way allows us to consume less.
