Yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! De-cluttering is my favourite thing. Are we able to post update pictures?
Please!I love seeing update pics.It motivates me even more than reading all the great progress.But I guess that's because I'm a visual person.

+1 from me, plus I love to see how other people actually manage to tidy their homes, mine still looks insane even though the decluttering is flying along nicely

Dh had a phone call to take while we were watching biggest loser so I did some in the LR. Took a bunch of movies out of their cases and put them in the binder we have for movies and then did some video cames as well. Tossed the cases and a few other random things. So 27 more things!

post #190 of 1298
Cool! Will do

I won't be able to do 'before' photos of my bedroom or the lounge room because I already de-cluttered those areas before I joined the challenge. I can do pictures of: The spare room, the computer room, the kid's room, the kitchen and the laundry.

I did not start last night as I slept unusually early, but I'm about to have my coffee and go nuts!!

I'm up to 224/2010! I told myself that I still have to fill another box, so we'll see how high it gets for today. About half of this stuff is going to our local children's hospital (toys, books, games) and half to charity (clothes, glassware, general home stuff). I've only thrown out one CD and three small ruined crayons.

1 old mobile phone - charity recycling
7 random pieces of gift wrapping materials - recycling

Ah thanks So are you! You'll be flying along in the kitchen

A quick warning to everyone.... when decluttering the utility room, try not to drop a scissors on your foot. Take it from me, it hurts! (My foot survived, thankfully I was wearing very thick socks and slippers so I just have a bruise rather than a severed foot ) Decluttering is dangerous work!
