The Minimalism Game

Followers of the blog know I’m fed up with the level of clutter and ‘stuff’ in my life.  For the month of March 2016 I’ve decided to play the Minimalism Game.  Each day I will dispose of a number of items equal to the day of the month.  Pictures and posts follow, but I’ve added this sticky post to feature the running totals.
