180/300 wool carpet with giant hole that dog chewed My new one came in.

I will be posting a TON tomorrow since I found about 10 or 11 boxes of children's clothing in our shed.

I am only keeping 1 box per size for my youngest and the rest are going. I will pretty much go over the goal I set for myself & my friends will be very happy

I am hoping to get some more done this weekend. Going to finish decorating for Christmas and any decorations that don't go out are going away. BYe Bye Clutter. Gotta go back in the storage room and be realistic with what really needs to be there.

I made my goal!!!

I have officially purged 252 items from my house this past weekend. Over 225 of them were children's clothing that I had been saving & was getting completely overwhelmed. The rest of the items were stuffed animals, a box of old pictures, mismatched gloves, old glass cases, several clothing items of mine, some samples of miscellaneous stuff and lastly, a pair of ripped sheets.

I still have 3 more boxes of children's clothing to go through & about 5 boxes of toys. I have to do that when my kids are occupied. The good items are going to my friend's special needs preschool that they are opening up in January.

:So my total is approximately 432 items out of my home!
