    Awesome! It feels so good to get rid of stuff you don’t need. Now I just need to get Wes on board…..

    I’m not quite that brave yet – but taking baby steps to get there. So far ~9 truck loads to goodwill; probably need to start selling stuff though now too…
    If I was to discount all my hobby stuff, then I might be there; but I have a lot of hobbies.

    Good for you guys!

    You are inspiring! I love getting rid of stuff…but I think (notice the word think) I might want to try this…..hummm 100 things…so does all the gear for each sport count as one??? Or does each item for each sport…that could be really tough then.
    Can’t wait to read what you come up with.

    Wow! I think if I could do this it would be a huge relief. There’s nothing like gathering a monster pile of “stuff” you don’t really need. I’m with you though — I would have to figure out my rules to make it work. I think I may give it a try (how noncommittal is that?)

    I love it! I’ve been working at mediation, which leads to some Buddhist thinking and simplicity and there seems to be a whole movement out there. I think you do have to come up with your own rules that work for your life, but that minmizing your stuff is a great thing to do. We hit our garage a couple of weeks ago, intially to make room for the 2 mountain bikes we already had and now the two road bikes we added this winter. My car was full for a trip to Goodwill, my husband’s car was full for a trip to the recycling dumpsters, our trash can was overflowing, and our neighbors who have one new grandchild and one on the way have our strollers and crib.

    You might be interested in two sites that I use and like for the book issue. I’ve finally learned not to hang on to every book that I’ve read and trade the paperbacks to get new used books in return. I like bookins.com and bookmooch.com

    And finally – you’re right those cookies- were tasty!

    A couple of years ago, while we were renovating my hubby and I were forced to live out of one laundry basket of clothes each for the entire summer. IT WAS SO AWESOME. No decisions to make, minimal laundry, sweeeeet.

    P.S. Hundred in the Hood looks gooooood!!
