I have a lot of stuff

I had a friend link me to The Story of Stuff Project, and it got me thinking. I guess I'm in a bit of a predicament. There is almost nothing I enjoy more than a morning of good yard sales, or an afternoon at a flea market. I love old things, and beautiful things and memorable things and unique things. But at my core, I also don't want to have a lot of 'things'. Perhaps this is an issue of self-control?

When I saw this poster, it struck a chord with me. There is something very peaceful about being aware of everything you own.

Could I do this? Could I document everything I own?. Perhaps we can be inspired by Dave Bruno, author of the 'Stuck in Stuff' blog, and his '100 Thing Challenge'. Just food for thought...
