Me, too. I don't know if I'm a hoarder, but those are my weaknesses, too. I'm getting better about clothes, but books are the hardest for me to ditch.

1 set of salt and pepper shakers
1 pair of slippers

I am going to try this. I know I have a number of things ready to go to donation, so I'll make sure to do a count before I take them to see how many things are in the bag.

14 misc. bathroom items went in the trash

a few things went in the donate bag but I'll count those when they leave

4 bath bombs are in a bag for my sister.I see her on the regular so those will be out the door in just a few days.For sure.

Getting ready to get back into our regular routines tomorrow so probably won't do too much today. I did throw out 5 old gross things of playdoh and 2 old yucky dishclothes. So 7 more added to my tally
post #50 of 1298
A little more done today...

5-9: 5 old magazines to recycling
10: 1 magazine given to my mum
11: 1 old tin into recycling
12-46: 34 books off to 2nd hand bookshop
47: 11 more bag of shredding papers

I am counting things as they get allocated into their boxes, we are carfree so I have to be creative with how the decluttered items leave the house. So these things will get taken to their new homes at different times! But the rule is... once an item is counted and goes into the box, it doesn't come back out in our house! And once a box is full, it is labelled and sealed and not reopened until it reaches its new home

Happy decluttering all!

1- deleted emails(I just deleted more than 500 emails that have been cluttering up my computer and my mind)

I'm going to head down to the dungeon.I might not make it out.

I think I'll bring the camera for motivation. I'll start on my daughter's side cause you know...it's way easier for me to throw out her crap than mine.

what a great idea. i'm in.

i was a bit intimidated by 2010 (such a huge number), but i noticed people are counting things like christmas cards and the like, so i think this could definitely be doable (is that a word?) also noticed some of you have cleaned out your underwear drawers. think that's what i'll tackle today. i've got a drawer brimming with at least 50 pairs (and i probably wear the same dozen pairs over and over).

just one question...what happens if i bring new things into the house? do i have to subtract that from my total?

post #54 of 1298
I'm in!
post #55 of 1298
Ok I am in! Hopefully this will keep me motivated! We could be looking at a move this coming summer so I really want to get everything sorted and only have the things we really want and need! If you don't see me back here someone yell at me please!

As I've been tossing things into boxes/bags to donate/give away/trash, I was wishing I did count! I feel like I must be at 2010 already, and I didn't even think I would have that much stuff to get rid of.

Instead of counting, I think I will take a picture of the pile we have to donate and post that to show my progress.

I made it out of the basement.I'll do way more when we move rooms around but that won't be for a few months.

47 misc art supplies(2 bags of garbage went out but I only counted the stuff I was "saving")

4 calendars

1 pile of papers

Just spent the evening starting off the New Year deep clean of the kitchen cupboards, and I've doubled my total so far
Up to 94/2010 now, shameful really.... New Year's Resolution no.1 : I will not let larder staples go out of date without using them up first!
