Minimalist: Friday Five

We are packing to move, boxes are everywhere, stuff has been taken to charity shops, more needs to go to the tip. Once again I am asking myself where all this stuff has come from, once again I'm thinking that I should really reduce and simplify.

So bearing in mind you are allowed the Bible, a bed + linen, a functioning kitchen, and a comfy chair, clothes within reason ( no dragging last centuries wardrobe in case), and probably essential today a lap-top OR computer  choose one from each of the following as your luxuries:

1. A book
2. A piece of music (albums/ sets allowed)
3. Piece of electronic/ tech equipment
4. luxury item of clothing
5. One item of your choice- it can be as normal or as weird as you like

As always, let us know in comments if you play. Even better, get in the habit of posting a direct link to your blog entry in your comment, using the following formulation:
<a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a>
For a complete how-to, click here.


  1. I really am working on downsizing, but
    this goes way too far.

    Also, the link instruction is way messed up.

  2. my play's not ready yet, but try this for linking:

    text you want displayed

    you need to be sure to grab the entire address from browser, including http:// so copy/paste works best

  3. yikes, my instruction posted as an active link; trying again:

    < a href = "blog post url from browser window" >text you want displayed < / a >

    however, you need to close up the space between the initial < and a, on both sides of = and close all the spaces in the closing tag.

  4. late play today... and thanks so much for the kitteh pic, Sally!

  5. A chance to reflect on what I treasure. Thanks. I played here

  6. I promised I would play today, no matter what. So, here it is, better late than not at all!
