Are you familiar with the minimalist trend of paring life down to only 100 possessions, or even fewer? There are some other less specific and less arbitrary downsizing movements, but this one fascinates me precisely because it is so specific and arbitrary.
100 items… Could you do it? The truth is: You could do it, although you probably don’t want to, or need to. Anyone could do it.
I find the idea inspiring. Okay, not inspiring enough to actually do–I’m not that hard-core about clean surfaces, but…it does makes me wonder!
If I had to choose 100 items to keep, which items would I choose? It reminds me of the old question: “What would you save from your home if it were in fire?” Hmmm. If you could safely save 100 things, that would be a pretty weak fire, wouldn’t it? But you get the idea. What do you need? What do you use? What do you love?
I am going to think about my 100 items, and come up with a list, which I will publish in a later post.
Feel free to share your own list! I would love to hear anyone’s thoughts on this.
