The 100-Item Challenge

Time for another in this blog’s long series of clutter-busting, self-organizing, ending-the-tyranny-of-clutter entries, borrowed from a blogger named GuyNamedDave, who decided, as he explains, that he wanted to live with no more than 100 belongings.  And here is a Time mag piece about the challenge he issued himself, which is now being taken up by people across the world.

It’s certainly a provocative idea: What if you pared down your possessions to no more than 100 items total? (Of course, that’s an arbitrary number, so pick another if you like–75? 125? 200? Maybe 125,000?)

Interesting challenge, and I think I could pull it off if–if–I could count all my books as one item. And why not?
