I want to burn the house down

I'm having one of those moments where I despise everything that I own. The fucking house is bursting at the seams with all this crap that I don't need. I want to turf it ALL and move into a tiny one bedroom apartment with just the bare necessities. Just the thought of living a simple life free from the burden of THINGS is so liberating .... ahhhhhh .... I WANT THIS dammit!
Apparently it's called downshifting and it's not as difficult as it looks once you commit yourself. There's even a challenge called "The Month of 100 Things" -- try to get rid of 100 things in one month. THAT I can do, starting now.


  1. Turns out the 100 Things Challenge is about living with only 100 things, yikes! .... not doable -- at least not now.

  2. this is a great bit of advice on how to start: http://guynameddave.com/2011/02/get-rolling-3-tips-for-living-simple/
    also like the comment about the trifecta, ugh.
