DO YOU REALLY NEED IT?
A news report says that 47% of Americans admit to owning far more possessions than they need, and a new clutter-free philosophy challenges people to get rid of anything superfluous to their lifestyle.
Learning of this `feel good fad` limited to 100 items, I decided to
pare it down to only 12 of the most dearly loved objects I would keep, if moving home.
This is my list, and I wonder about your own?
A turtle skull picked up on a beach in Oman
Chinese carved coffee table
Watercolour of a boat by a Scottish loch
Burmese statue of the Buddha
Two old cane chairs
Lithograph of Dad`s boat `Sea Mist`
Indian drum table
Metal bird from Zimbabwe
Old kitchen wall clock
Handwoven carpet from Iraq
Painting of an Australian rural scene
My personal library of books (counted as a single possession)
