today I threw away...

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
*a dead pineapple plant (too thick to compost)
*baby clothes that were beyond any hope of renewal/reuse
*photos and negatives that I didn't want or care about
*really crappy half-used cosmetics from... oh, 10 years ago?
*a broken plastic toy
*half of an old telephone-- I'll throw out the other half when I find it, lol

I'm so unbelievably proud of myself! Especially the baby clothes. I always want to save every little thing that "might be useful someday." Especially fabrics. Or that is shiny, or that is fill-in-the-blank with whatever stupid reason.

I posted before about being fed up with the clutter, and I've been donating useable stuff, this is the first time I've actually thrown *something* away away! (Just to clarify, we recycle and throw away yucky trash. I'm talking about just random junk that I feel attatched to)...

So, what have you other clutter bugs thrown out recently?

Congrats! I've cleaned out one of my bookcases and loaded the books into the sub to donate.

*sandbox toys
*wicker basket
*2 hula hoops

Still out there.

*1 folding chair
*slip and slide

Now on to the basement.

Yeah! I put an office chair and 2 dvd shelves to the curb and they are gone!

And baby kitten pee got me to throw out some stuffed animals and some fabric I've had for at least 5 years (happy and sad at the same time )

I only threw away some old kid "art," but good for you!

*rope mop
*dust mop
*scrubber mop
*broom handle
*broom

Now all that's left is the broom I actually use and the steam mop.

*nearly empty spray cleaner bottle

also took the second dustbuster (my mother is weird) to Goodwill

Every time she visits, my mom goes and buys more cleaning tools. Let me tell you, cleaning supplies don't clean by themselves.

Can I take credit for the stuff I got out of my parent's house two weeks ago?

*box of half used cosmetics from more than 20 years ago.
*6 non-functional "squiggle" balls

Plus two full garbage bags of 20 year old toys to Goodwill.

well... since they were probably your toys, I suppose we can let you count them

So far today, I've thrown out some more electronic-y stuffed toys that I just can't wash. DD1 is not happy with me, but she has vowed to take better care of her toys now!

: Nope, mostly my little brother's and he was the one that drove one of the bags to the thriftstore. I was the one who fought with the dusty and cobwebby boxes though.

you and your uber productivity!
