There’s a new grass-roots movement of people who are sick of the consumeristic society and the clutter that fills our lives.  There’s a neat Time magazine article describing how these people are selling, donating, and throwing away most of their possessions to get down to owning only 100 things.

I was making a mental list, seeing if I could get anywhere close to owning just 100 items…not so much.  There’s a guy named David Bruno who has a blog tracking his journey over the last couple years trying to get down to 100 personal possessions. 

“It comes down to the products vs. the promise,” says organizational consultant Peter Walsh, “People are finding that their homes are full of stuff, but their lives are littered with unfulfilled promises.”
