Read It: The 100 Thing Challenge

The 100 Thing Challenge: How I Got Rid of Almost Everything, Remade My Life, and Regained My SoulThe 100 Thing Challenge: How I Got Rid of Almost Everything, Remade My Life, and Regained My Soul by Dave Bruno

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


It is not uncommon for me to proclaim that I never want to pick up this such and such again. These proclamations make my man very uncomfortable because he feels I am going to start tossing things out. I feel overwhelmed by all the stuff in my home and I want to simplify my life by getting rid of our stuff.

I wanted to read this book about someone that did just that. Dave Bruno got rid of everything except 100 personal items. That sounds wonderful! Just as I suspected the author found relief as he got rid of the things that held him back. He got rid of the train set because he realized it was something that only took up space and made him feel he wasn't accomplishing his desire to have that dream train display. It made me think of all those things I hold onto because I "should" someday do such and such.

This was a simple read but in the end I felt as if the author was just trying to add works simply to write a book. But in the end it did make me think of the things I can purge and why I should throw out the crap I will never use.

Jason, as himself said...

So what did you end up getting rid of?

I always feel so liberated when I do this.
