Who wants to do a 100 items out by Christmas challenge????

We've done these before on here but I think its been a bit.

You can donate, sell, recycle or trash em. It doesn't count just to put it in bags. You gotta get it at least in your car/trash/front yard etc.

Anyone anyone? Bueller, Bueller??

OK I'll start:
1.lazy susan
2. book
4, 5, 6. magazine file folder things
7. candle

All in a bag in my car to go to Goodwill tomorrow!! Yeah.

Ooo - I'll do it. I might forget to come back and count. I always do a big clean out in November or December.

Right now:
3 kid's games/puzzles
about 20 adult books
a vase
seater and shirt

More to come!

ETA: One bag of books from the younger's room (maybe 15 books)

ETA: Bag of books from the older's room. Maybe another 15 books.

I can't wait to tackle the toys! And kitchen clutter.

I might be game to this...

We always go through things in rotation anyway, so I have a pile in the bottom of my closet. A couple items got added today. DD & I need to go through her clothes this weekend, too. Over the next few weeks, I have the office to go through.

Maybe if we hit 100 fairly quickly maybe we can add on more.

Oh, me! I need to get rid of some stuff. We just had a yard sale too. It didn't seem to make a dent.

Okay, in a box by the front door (since it's raining and DH has the car today!) for the thrift store ...

14 books
8 cloth diapers
7 dish towels
4 pairs of shoes
1 humidifier

36 things already! Counting is pretty darn motivating!

2 gifted baby outfits
2 sample cans of formula for the food bank

So that's 40.
