brilliant idea to go | surplus

These days I am all about people following through on their ideas and making something happen. Here’s one for you. Yale design student Benjamin Critton is selling one “unused, underused, inessential or redundant” object from his home on sale every day for 100 days. He calls it “Day In, Day Out: A Workshop in 100 Parts”.

On my first visit I found three things I wanted, to add to my own collection of too much stuff. I’m trying to show some restraint by blogging instead of buying.

Check out the site. We all have good ideas (admittedly, along with plenty of not-so-good ideas), but you have to love it when someone makes the idea happen in a simple, elegant and disciplined way. Extra points for a sense of humor.
