The 365 Day Giveaway

Inspired by an article I read last year called “The Giveaway Guy: One Possession a Day for 365 Days”, I decided that in 2014 I will give away a minimum of 365 items, at least one per day. Three weeks into the new year, I’ve given away about 80 items. I’m not finding it that hard (yet) as we all have some low hanging fruit. .. books, CDs, clothing. . . but I know as the year ticks by, it will become harder to keep going. However, I am absolutely committed to doing this. For anyone who has been to my house, you know that I am bordering on being a minimalist. I have one set of dishes, one set of pots and pans, 2 sets of sheets, and so on. I’m not a collector, though I do have a fabulous collection of Christmas ornaments from many, many years of getting a little something here and a little something there. I buy books used from Amazon, and after I’ve read them, I sell them on Amazon or give away to a friend. I have a relatively small CD collection. All my clothes fit in one closet and one chest of drawers. So. . . I have embarked on this journey with the idea that what I don’t need, use, love and want can enrich someone else’s life. I would love it if others would join me . . . what a great gift to those less fortunate.
