Purge

About 10 years ago, I came across an article about a guy who tried to reduce his possessions down to 100 things.  

I liked the idea and started trying to do something similar though not quite as extreme.  I found it liberating in that I had less "stuff" to manage and I could justify getting slightly fewer but nicer things for myself.

In the years since, I've managed to collect a lot of things all over again.  Compared to how I felt when I was living the minimalist lifestyle, I feel -- for lack of a better word -- "stuck."

So, today, I'm going to start doing that again.  I'm going to try and get rid of at least one thing every day until I get to a point where everything I own is either useful or beautiful.

Coincidentally, today is Independence Day.
