I've seen a few threads recently regarding 'luxury'.
It seems to be anything from clean socks to a cleaner to international first class travel to a super yacht
I would see luxury as not having to worry about your life, that whatever your needs are, they can be catered for.
It's not material goods as such, more a freedom from concern.
And money can bring that. Or help.
That's luxury, surely?
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

If you’re only talking about your needs to a level that’s normal in British society, I’d call that ease rather than luxury. For luxury I think you have to be edging towards satisfying desire, not just need.

Ah yes @NumberTheory ease.
Desire is a whole other story.

I thought it mainly applied to biscuits!
But I have seen now it has also been applied to crackers (edible) Now that is crackers!

I read that thread I didn't add to it. I thought it was interesting people were simply writing down their own ideas of luxuries which surely is swayed by their own life and current circumstances.
