I have had a long interest in tiny houses, like this one (my mother will confirm this).
Sometimes I play a mind game with myself, what would I keep if I lived in a 400 square foot house? What about a 200 square foot house? My current space is about 800 square feet, a bit less than the size of an average apartment and even less than half the size of an average house (some statistics on that here).
As I followed links and read various things I came across this challenge by The Minimalists and I want to give it a try...
For the month of June I'm going to give away, recycle, remove things from my house. Following the pattern suggested by The Minimalists:
June 1st = one item
June 2nd = two items
June 3rd = three items and so forth...
For the really scary math, by the end of June that totals 465 items!
At least once a week I'll document what I've gathered to give away.
For day one:
A bag of stamps that I am taking to a co-worker.
And yes it might have been easy to save this for day 10 or so, but the reality is that I could easily gather 400 or so small items like this to meet the challenge so I need to work a little harder than that!
