Oh and I almost forgot. I am putting all of the cards that we got for our wedding and invites to others weddings in the recycling bin because really I never look at them they are just taking up room. Must declutter, it is freeing.

I'm in..I seriously need to do some purging...not to mention just some cleaning
post #70 of 154

55. disgusting honey jar
56. fabric scraps I will probably never use
(all trashed)
57. yellow chair, wait did I do that one? Anyway, it's in the car!

in a box but still in our place: small crock pot, various forks, spoons, one entire china set, one set of leopard print wine glasses... many empty jars I've been "saving" to be recycled.. the "green blanket

and maybe I will just give up on some of my started and never finished sewing projects that I don';t really want to finish with materials that were recycled and I never really liked... make space, make space!!

Thinking about purging...more of my way -too-many birth related books. Have already eliminated one box though!

6. 3 picture frames returned to Michael's today - I got them for specific things on Thanksgiving during the sale, but they didn't work out. Thanks to this challenge, I returned them ASAP instead of waiting for who knows how long!
7. 1 picture frame returned and 1 exchanged @ Aaron Bros today - I got them on Black Friday during the sale, but one didn't look right and the other was the wrong size. I was able to exchange the wrong size. I have to keep looking for the right frame for our bedroom. Thanks to this challenge, I took care of them ASAP!
8. 1 bag of toilet paper and paper towel cores for Girl Scout project - community service project that we've been saving up for since Halloween...so glad to get these out of here!

9/100 = 9% of the way
10. dance game DD has outgrown (electronic)

1 -2. books mailed out.
3. DVD mailed out.
4-5. Piles of paper out of the dining room
6-9. Home-canned items that were no good.

I've got a box going to the thrift store, but that won't be until next week some time. But that gives me time to add more to the box.
