I define luxury as something you really don't need, but it is worth it to blow $ on! 1 that I have is considered a big waste of $$$ by most people who live out here, but I love it! There is no garbage pick up in the boonies. Instead you throw your smelly garbage in the back of a PU truck and drive 30 miles to a dump. I don't have a PU, but do have 2 cats. You can only imagine how bad that would smell in a heated car. A few years ago, a company in a town about 30 minutes from here started offering dumpsters and 2x a month PU out here for a large fee. Most people here have a lot of land and the dumpsters can be placed far from your house. It costs more than my electric bill, but it is so worth it! If you live in civilization, something you take for granted maybe a luxury to someone else.
