Minimalist game, week two

Last week's kickoff of the minimalist game was an easy reduction of seven items, but this week, we doubled to two items per day.

Day 1: LexisNexis badge, MTU student ID
Day 2: Flag and geek patches
Day 3: Motorcycle pants, another hemp necklace
Day 4: Helmet cam case, captive bead ring
Day 5: Two blaze orange bandanas from my hiking gear
Day 6: Flint for fire starting and a set of bamboo flatware and chop sticks, both also from hiking gear
Day 7: Bump keys, glass picture frame with MTU post card

Admittedly, my jetsam this week is pretty small stuff: it could all fit into a small box. Yet save for the motorcycle pants, these are all things I've had for a minimum of two years, though some of them go quite a ways back -- my MTU ID goes back to around January 2001.

I'm already looking forward to next week. After the first week, I had a bit of trepidation about turning up the heat and getting to 90 items by November. As it stands, though, the only difficulty will be finding the time to go through my things.

The more I get rid of, the more less I find I need.
