With Voluntary Simplicity still on our minds, the 100 Thing Challenge, a growing movement of ex-packrats vowing to clear their lives of all but 100 of their necessities, caught our attention. Dave Bruno, a 37-year-old entrepreneur based in San Diego, brought a spotlight to the movement through his blog, Guynameddave.com. On it, Dave details his slow march towards clutter- freedom, explaining what he has and has not decided to cast off (dental floss is a keeper (and for some reason exempt from the 100 Thing list), while old jeans are a definite discard). His plan is to continue whittling down his stuff and eventually reach 100 by November 12, 2008, but he’s enthusiastic about how his efforts have sparked others to join in the challenge in the meantime. While the challenge might seem impossible for some, Dave’s honest account of his struggle to simplify gives us reason to believe that taking on the challenge, even if unconquerable in the end, is something we all might learn from.
