100 Items or Less

"I would rather own little and see the world, than own the world and see little of it"

Alexander Sattler
The idea behind this 'item cap' (crap cap?) is to basically own less in order to experience more. It will help me conserve space, give me the element of mobility, help me to save money, and most of all would help alter my consumption patterns and reduce my carbon footprint. I personally feel that cutting consumption is the first step towards creating a more sustainable and just world, which is something that all of us need to work towards.

Bear in mind that you make your own rules. I have decided to not include items that are shared with other family members (such as cleaning supplies or cups), and to count collections as one item (such as my survival kit and medical kit). I also use a 100/100 rule which helps me cut down the number of items that I own. The principle is simple enough--an item is discarded if it has not been used in the last 100 days and will most likely not be used in the next 100 days.

Living a profligate lifestyle is something that I strive to avoid at all costs.
