Necessities, they call them.  Food and shelter.  That's pretty much all you need.

Everything else is icing.  Maybe not frivolous, but, by definition, unnecessary.  You'll live without them.

Getting the necessities once required a steeper toll.  Times change, and prices with them.  Now, although basic food and shelter are almost free, we unnecessarily perform self-flagellation to satisfy the ritual requirement.
