My need is to listen to music - to satisfy this, I need some kind of device and a source of music. If I would be a real Minimalist, my cellphone would be enough to do so. But I'm not: I've got speakers in every room and I would never ever throw them out of here! There's a limit for me being a Minimalist.
What I've to think about is the value of these cds: my personal value, the value a second hand cd has for it's new user, the value that is lost for the band as no new cd is sold, the value that is earned for the band as I pay for streaming every song, the value of the recylable plastic as a resource, the value of resources that are free for other stuff as no new cd has to be produced.... wages in production...

So as I didn't have that much time to think, I found some small things to give.
But what about those things. They rested here in my place as resouces that were useless for me, but might not be for others. So if someone would like to buy one of those, my unused stuff is something like a dead resource. That's a gigantic wasting of resources if you imagine the stuff that's unused in every household.

But there is mostly... junk... On day 18
An unused bag that I've won years ago. And an old watch ... One Pilsener Beer - over for four years and Lemon Soda which I'm usually importing from Italy - I opened it and it was nearly orange (two years over)

Lightbulbs: easy to throw them out as there are LED's nowadays
These are stuff of another category: things you really don't need anymore and you can't imagine any reason why you might want to use them in the future. As any energy saving bulb would be replaced by a led, it's easy to get rid of them.
... thought about keeping one classic bulb to make thomething new out of it ... but... they come as a set of 17 so they had to go all...

It's still my kitchen, but a bit different.
It looks different because of some missing decorations. I think this is one category of things that I have: stuff that is in my home and makes my home look like mine.
So there seems to be stuff laying and standing around that's got a function in just being there and helping to define a home as ones home. Making it cozy. Throwing too many of those things out might be minimizing but that would not be helpful at all.
... If I'm not defined through the stuff I've got, at least my home is somehow marked as mine with my things in it when I come home.

On day 6 of the MinsGame I shredded three old notebooks. I've taken notes on jobs, stuff I've read, things I've done - these were no diaries, but somehow shredding them was strange.
Also I gave a chocolate machine to a girl who came to get her some plush sheep that I found in a box. The sixth thing was a clipboard that could be thrown away.
The problem of the #MinsGame is that there are lot's of things in my house that I myself didn't use for a long time. So they are useless resources that could be useful for others, but how to find these new users? So we decided that it's okay to put some stuff into the cellar until a new user could be found within this month.
Yesterday I made my own givebox and put the glasses in them on the street in front of my house at 11pm: they were gone (including the box) early this morning.

So it's July the second and two things I don't need anymore have to go. How many things do I have that I really don't need now and in the future. I just thought about building something like a clock out of the metal plate... But now it's going to be recycled into a new life as soda can ...
