30-Day Minimalism Game – Day 18   1 comment

Today is the last bit of Curios and Conundrums, and some other small odds and ends I found lying around. I’m still 100% sure I won’t make it to day 30, but I’m not sure how many more days I have to go. I’m kind of excited to see how far I can push it.


The first item is a silver lice comb called the NitPicker. It is another one of the funny gag items Curios sends. Funny, clever, but not useable or practical.

Same could be said of the St. Mark’s Hotel soap. In the newspaper that comes with it, they mention the hotel. This is probably why it was in the package.

The patsy button was another from the packages. It was funny, and I had it on my bag for a bit. But I don’t wear buttons like this, or use them on my bag.

The black fang necklace was from my brother. It looks kind of cool, but I never really found a good way to wear it.

The red bag contains a bell labeled Judas. It is another one of those things that Curios sent, to be quirky and ominous. It’s a nicely made bell at least.

The bag below that contains a metal hand. It is designed to be put on a chain. I’m sure it has more meaning than just being a creepy hand, but I don’t honestly care to find out.

The medallion below it is from a Pyrat rum bottle. My friend works at a liquor store, and when they sell orders to bars they pull all of the little odds and ends off. I was going to add it to a modded Nerf gun, but I’m not going to paint a gun any time soon.

The next on below is a bracelet. I honestly don’t remember where it came from. I wore it a lot when I was younger, but it was a pain to keep tight on my wrist. It’s been sitting in a box this whole time, so I don’t think I’ll miss it.

The dream catcher bag is super old. I believe I got it in junior high, but it could be even older. I don’t remember how I got it, but it just has been sitting in a box. I think the only reason I had it was because I had it so long.

The blue glass eye thing is another creepy curio that I never use. I guess you are supposed to put it on a necklace as well. But I don’t think it’s that cool looking.

The paperclip pentacle was something I made when I was bored at my old job. I made it only with my fingers and a letter opener, out of 6 paperclips. I’m proud of the work, but I have other paperclips things I’ve made and given to friends that are more impressive.

The piece of wood is a knot that I knocked out of a finished board. I noticed it was loose when I looked at it, and took a few minutes to pull it out. It was kind of cool, but I don’t have any reason to hold on to it.

The black clips next to the wood are some clips I got to attach my water bottle to things. I used one of them and it broke in a week, so I didn’t bother with these other two. It was probably a weight limit issue.

The steel ball above that is a steel ball. I have no idea where I got this, or why I kept it. No real loss to get rid of it.

The last items are 4 rings. I went through a bit of a jewelry phase, and so my girlfriend at the time provided me these rings. I don’t know why I have them, as none of them fit on my fingers. Even now that I have lost weight, so I won’t miss them. There are some I will keep around for the memories, but these are OK to go.

286 items to go.
