Do you know this word “stuff”??  As a noun, it is uncountable (数えられない), but very common to describe 物 or 事 in English.

For example.

  • There is a lot of stuff in my wife’s bag.
  • I have some stuff to do today.
  • I gave some of my stuff to my brother.
  • She learned interesting stuff at the seminar.
  • Can you help me move my stuff tomorrow?  (引越し)
  • My father knows a lot of stuff.

Also, you could use “things” instead of “stuff” for the same meaning.  The only real difference is that “thing” is a 数えられる名詞, so you need to mind your grammar.

  • There are a lot of things in my wife’s bag.
