How to Live With Just 100 Things

Excess consumption is practically an American religion. But as anyone with a filled-to-the-gills closet knows, the things we accumulate can become oppressive. With all this stuff piling up and never quite getting put away, we’re no longer huddled masses yearning to breathe free; we’re huddled masses yearning to free up space on a countertop. Which is why people are so intrigued by the 100 Thing Challenge, a grass-roots movement in which otherwise seemingly normal folks are pledging to whittle down their possessions to a mere 100 items.

  1. hi Tina,
    this is actually something I often wonder about when I see all the fabulous objects you post about: what would the house of somebody who bought even just 1% of those objects look like? It will certainly contain more than 100 items, no?
    But please, keep ’em coming!

  2. stefano, I myself, as tina, have a blog where I post things I see and like. some of them are for sale, but this doesn’t mean I will buy them all. sometimes just spending some time appreciating them and taking a look at them is enough.

    aside from that, I understand your point. I think that it’s very difficult to live in this society and not whish to have some stuff.

    viele Grüße!

  3. Now all I want to do is go home and clean my walk-in closet. Damn this having-to-have-a-job business!
