My 100+ Things

Dave Bruno's "The 100 Thing Challenge" is an amazing idea. It's just not something I could ever achieve at this point in my life. I work from home, so I have things that are needed for my job. I have a hobby/passion that requires certain gear that is non-negotiable. I have a cat who has certain creature comforts I will not make her do without. And I have a man who has some say in what stays or goes when it comes to furnishings and electronics.

As I have no plans to get rid of anything belonging to man or cat, I will only list the things that are mine (that may or may not be part of the purge) and the things in the household that are communal (most of which will stay unless/until we move again).

I am also not listing any items belonging to my employer that are in my possession as they are not mine to dispose of, only to use. And I won't list food, paper goods, cleaning supplies, medicine items or the like as we don't overbuy from big box stores and we do eventually consume/utilize everything we buy.

I'm sure I've left off a minor thing or two from the "junk drawer," such as command hooks, cable ties or velcro, but as those are potentially communal property and constantly being used and depleted I didn't include them here.

And, of course, this list is likely to change the next time I acquire something new, get rid of something old, or am given something I have to hang onto for a length of time.
