100 Things: a winter version

Every year on or around my birthday, I count my things. Many of my things are clothes and I wear them out in a season or two of near constant use. Then the winter clothes often don’t make it into the count unless they are very durable. So for fun (Ha!) I did a winter count last weekend. Here are the results:

  1. Awesome!!!! Inspiring. How did you get there?

  2. It’s a long and sometimes sad tale…I’ll be brief: the kids and I moved from our home on the farm with a week’s worth of clothes and some pots and pans. Before we could go back and get the rest of the stuff, the house burned to the ground (OK it was a year later, but we didn’t really miss anything.) I liked the freedom of so little stuff, so when it tried to creep back in, I devised this game to keep things light.

  3. You never cease to amaze me!
    I have thought (although I could never have the willpower) much simpler things would be.
    Keep it up…let me live vicariously thru you!!
