Many of us are often curious about what’s in the other’s bags, houses, cars, drawers, pockets, hoping maybe they will get some inspiration, better ideas or just out simple curiosity. It’s human nature. I have to admit that I sincerely admire the opposite side of human nature, the one with zero curiosity about what the other posses, achieve or think, following of course all the common sense rules and social boundaries.

Even so, I will share with you my list of 100 personal things, hoping that you find some inspiration in intentional purchasing habits and – why not – collecting memories, not things.

Two years ago I’ve left my home country and I’ve started living in Barcelona, Spain, a completely different lifestyle than I used to have before. Downsizing from a big house to a small apartment, sharing all the storage spaces with my wife and our little son was a challenge, commuting with public transportation was also different than owning a personal car, splitting the budget between the needs of all the three of us had a strong influence in my de-cluttering process as well.

Decluttering is great

After one year and a half of decluttering, my personal 100 objects list at that time was a very “light” one, because of the friendly climate of Barcelona, and it could easily fit in one single hand luggage airplane friendly (at that time I wasn’t involved in a permanent job, though, only freelancing, so that pulled the balance in my advantage, a little bit.
