RE: Oh please! ...

And the Millennials I know are not nearly as concerned with massive acquisition of stuff. That is most definitely a Boomer thing. That does not mean Millennials don't want to buy and acquire things.

Wait until they get married and want to have kids.

Personally, I loved small footprint urban living, but there are relatively few urban neighborhoods that are safe enough and family-friendly enough to give my kids the sort of childhood I want them to have. And I can't afford to live in them.

Most of the Millenials I work with are getting married in their late 20s, and after they turn 30 they want to have kids and end up buying a home in the suburbs. Once you buy a house in the suburbs, the accumulation of stuff begins. Furniture and home furnishings, appliances, large TVs, lawn tractors, power tools, clothes, and then kids stuff, piles and piles of kids stuff.
