Ok... are you ready?I went into the storage stuff and separated out 650 items!I'm counting them as gone because my husband agreed to take them to the Salvation Army and we absolutely need them out of the space they're in so he'll actually do it.

I don't know if I should be excited or embarrassed about the total but I sure am glad it's going!

Can I join in too?

I starting boxing stuff up right before Christmas. The junk sat in the dining room and then in my van for several weeks. I had Wed off so dh and I took the stuff to this place called Goodwill Xpress. It was super easy and really close.

I'm planning on doing a little work in our bedroom today, if I can get my pregnant butt off the couch. Dh has been bringing boxes home for me...it definitely helps motivate!

All total we got rid of maybe 80 items...I have to start keeping better count. Christmas knick-knacks, kitchen stuff, books, clothes, shoes

Not much today. Too busy! Every little bit counts though.

3 toys
2 pointless pieces of plastic
Old balloons (counting as 1)

Filled another box this afternoon! More Christmas knick-knack stuff that were gifts from the Christmas before last. I did keep the dollar store Christmas plate my grandma sent. Pre-pregnancy clothes that MIL had made me take.

Another 27 items!

I have 2 boxes of Christmas Stuff sitting by the door waiting to go, plus tossed some broke Christmas ornaments. Then tossed some other stuff earlier today. I would say I am at about 40 ( might be more but I wanna round DOWN so I actually get rid of MORE LOL) Then I had some stuff the other day. So my total is probably a bit higher but I like listing a smaller number

so that puts me at 50/2010

Adding to my 60:

61-75 (estimated): Kitchen/household items - Freecycle
76-90 (estimated): Expired "non-perishables" (oxymoron, eh?) - discarded, containers recycled
91-200 (estimated: Coupon inserts, magazines, booklets, and newspapers (of which there were literally hundreds)...All were previously waiting to be gone through. Now organized and downsized.

So here I am at 200/2010. Ten percent completed! Here's to another successful day tomorrow.

I'm going to join this too. I've been doing the 5 a day for January and that has been going well, but it alone is not going to make a dent. I figured out that 2010 over 12 months is 167-168 items per month, and I think I can do that.

Right now I am at 126 out of 2010. Most of it was clothes.

I'm so jealous.Yesterday my husband told me we had to keep the stereo that has been in storage for the last 10 years because it is the only working tape deck that we have.

Thank you!I hope you are too!


Do items count if they belong to someone else?I've been storing stuff for other people but I have a friend coming to pick up his stuff today and I'm going to ask my sister to go through her stuff on Tuesday.

Joining in cause we've been setting tons of things aside and have way more to get rid of and I need the extra motivation. I'll count it out when it's really on the way out though (we have a few places that'll pick it up from our house around here, but with the snow we missed the last neighborhood pick-up).

So starting out 0/2010.
