Less 365 - Week 1

Inspired by Sara's recent blog post (from girlscantell) - I've decided to take part in the Less 365 experiment. The premise is to give away, recycle, or bin an item a day, for an entire year! I'm going to photograph my items once a week, and hopefully this will keep me being more mindful of what comes into my home...hopefully...

This week (apart from an embarrassingly large bag of rubbish found in the bottom of a long forgotten drawer) I'm donating a size 18 Grecian style dress I wore to Leon's Christmas do last year - gorgeous, but way too big now (yay!) a weird iPod-y type attachment that I've never used, a table runner I bought possibly 15-odd years ago from Oxfam, and have never used, a Big Audio Dynamite CD (don't ask!) a teensy tiny camel pin (I have no idea where I got this from?), and I am recycling a box I have kept for at least 8 years that my jewellery block came in, and old business cards with incorrect details.

I think this is a fantastic idea! I am tempted to do it too. Are you going to photograph everything once a week?

Excellent Leanne and Jo! Yes, Jo, I think I'll be doing this once a week...for a year - will be interesting to see what possessions I'm holding onto for unknown reasons...
