Reading this will lead you to a better life. Dean Nelson, author of God Hides in Plain Sight In The 100 Thing Challenge Dave Bruno relates how he remade his life and regained his soul by getting rid of almost everything. But The 100 Thing Challenge is more than just the story of how one man started a movement to unhook himself from consumerism by winnowing his life's possessions down to 100 things in one year. It's also an inspiring, invigorating guide to how we all can begin to live simpler, more meaningful lives.

Praise For The 100 Thing Challenge

“Living simply is only an ideal until someone like Bruno gets particular. The way he got particular should make everyone think--hard, which is a very good thing.”
-Mark Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame

“In a loving, wise, sometimes hilarious manner, Dave Bruno holds a mirror up to us and says to take a closer look at how we’re living. Reading this will lead you to a better life.”
-Dean Nelson, Author of God Hides in Plain Sight and director of the journalism program at Point Loma Nazarene University

“[Bruno’s] musings about his slow and steady purge have developed a cult following online, inspiring others [toward] clutter-free living.”
