I received an email recently from Deb telling me about how she is doing a similar thing to me but documenting it from very different angle.
Here is what Deb wrote…I am doing a reverse gestalt on your project as I continue my Rathole a Day Project (reviewing Stuff on one shelf, drawer, box, closet a day): I am identifying those objects that are Beautiful and/or Useful and that I want to keep. So everyday I photograph one object that makes me happy to own.
Leo of zenhabits.com suggests owning 200 objects. Along that line, I’m identifying my 365 favorite objects (some of them very small) as I continue my Rathole Project. I’m photograph them, as you are photographing those things you are getting rid of. I’m finding it very easy to let go of things that don’t make the cut for a photograph.
This also gives me a good inventory record of Stuff.
Quite the opposite to my photo archive but really handy for insurance purposes if Deb ever had to make a claim. Also a great way to make the choice of what stays and what goes. I like it.
If anyone else has an original way they decide what stays and what goes please drop me a line I would love to hear about it.
ITEM 158 OF 365 LESS THINGS
This guitar did not appreciate the 240 volt jolt it received to its 110 volt system so was only good for it parts and thanks to Freecycle I found someone happy to take it for this purpose.
