100 Thing Challenge

I came across a blog by Dave who is taking on a 100 Thing Challenge.  This is pretty impressive.  This guy, who has a wife and two daughters that I don't think are taking part, is going to throw out every personal item except for 100 things.

He's tracking his progress, and you can bet I will be too.  I wonder if I could do that.  Just looking at my desk there must be more than 100 things there.

anyone want to try the 100 Thing Challenge with me?  Seems like it could be interesting.

Sounds more simply. I had a conversation with my godfather once about in the event of an emergency, being able to just pick up from your house and take whatever was valuable to me in about 20 minutes and be on the road, never to return. He said he could do it in about 5 minutes. I think I could do it in about 20. That really got me thinking. I am not attached to too many things, but what a good thing to live more simply!

I have purged a lot of stuff from my house in the past year. But, only 100 things? I'm not sure I could do it. I'm get way too attached to stuff.

I don't even know what I would grab if I had to leave my house quick. We have a copy of our important photos in our safe deposit box - wedding and Alex. It's an interesting thing.

I'll start a list with you of what I've gotten rid of. Between Good Will and Yard Sales, I've probably gotten rid of 100 items.

I went through my nesting period after Alex was born. Haha.
