The more stuff, the more debt

The more stuff you have, the more you’re in debt.

I don’t mean that the cost of buying all that stuff lands you in debt, though that’s certainly possible. I mean that the stuff itself is debt.

You have it. You can’t leave it. You can’t just get up and move. It has you.

To get out of it, you’d have to sell your stuff or donate it or trash it or give it away to friends. Either way, it ties you down for now. It forces you to pay back.

And that’s what debt is, something that forces pay back. And that’s what stuff is, something that forces pay back.
