1000 things

i recently read this article -
how to live with just 100 things

i am very intrigued.

i want to be this way too.
but i have too much stuff.
and i do like my stuff.

this part got me thinking though,
"once their purpose is over,
they just keep you stagnant."

agreed.

and while i don't think i can live with just 100 things,
i do have THREE kids, people,
i want to do something.

so here is my plan.
i don't even know if it is possible.
but i am going to try.

i am going to
GET RID OF 1000 THINGS.
little things, big things, broken things, etc.

and i'll keep you posted.
with a list, i think.
anyone else up to the challenge?

What kinda things are you getting rid of? I like things!

pajama mom said...

i think i'll post lists for each 100. probably mostly junk at first.

i'm sure mm will be happy to mail whatever you wish! he hates clutter.

he has d&d stuff - he won't get rid of that. i've been meaning to see what comic books he has. just for fun.

"do you collect happy meal toys?"

Not on purpose! :P

As to comics, I call "dibs"!

i'm in too. we kind of already do this naturally (you know, The Major has a touch of the OCD when it comes to clutter) but there is always room for improvement. oh man, i just gave myself a migraine.

mm also. clutter drives him nutso. which is all part of my evil plan, of course. :)
