The Essentials-Part II

The selection process is complete and my container is ready to go. I will live from it beginning tomorrow morning, Labor Day.

The selection process was most interesting. As I established the categories, the choices were fairly obvious. I have my favorites.

I will use a beautiful handmade set of ceramic dishes with a set of Dansk silverware for all of my meals. I bought special Green and Black Chocolate Bars and Probars for snack choices that are housed in my original snack-holding glass canisters.

On my memorabilia shelf, I selected two quilts, my hand embroideries of family, some jewelry and some photos.

From her experience, my container project partner, Jude, told me that the key to successfully living out of The Container is the selection of the uniform, the clothing I will wear everyday for this next month. I selected three pair of Capri pants and five knit tops for everyday wear, two complete exercise tops and bottoms, underwear and pjs.

Let the experiment begin.
