Books are so tough...I keep my very favorites, ones i really liked, and ones dd likes, loves or I can see her liking when she is ready.
I appologize to the ones I don't like and tell them they will be appreciated more in someone elses home.

#13 I threw out a jar of pickled garlic that I hated, but kept because I didnt want to waste them. I keep trying them in recipes but nothing makes them tase good.

Echoing the question about bringing stuff into the house- do we take away form our 2010 list, or does it matter?
My vote is for does not matter if it is necessary and has a place/purpose.

Went through the box of wii stuff and am donating all the game cases. Various pieces of crap in the trash. Now all the controllers, guitars, etc. are all in a nice bin in the tv table.

Since I am not compacting but just decluttering I won't be taking away from my list for bringing things in my house.Ive got that part pretty well under control.

Haven't done much today in the way of decluttering, but I did toss a broken belt and a small bag o' crap.

I just went through all our craft stuff, which also had an entire collection of old party supplies - decorated paper napkins, plates, cups. I had planned on using them all one day, but that day never came.

So, a nice good sized bin full of stuff we don't need and haven't used...all GONE.

Also, a wooden box that housed cards from birthdays and holidays from 10-15
years ago. I didn't even go through them, just chucked 'em. GONE!

I've got two books requested on my swap sites. I'll count those once they get sent.

I may be able to combine this with my 2010 house goals. I will go through a room a month cleaning it from top to bottom and repairing/replacing items, as needed, and decluttering along the way (as detailed in the 2010 goals thread). Counting tends to bog me down and stress me out, though. Yet, being accountable on threads such as this motivates me. (The 2010 goals type threads typically fall by the wayside sooner than counting threads.) We'll see which effect wins out as being the most productive for me!

Since the underwear drawer has been so popular I decided to have a look in mine last night.

14 pieces of underwear gone

and this morning I finally got rid of the coffee bag that had more kitchen fuzz on it than coffee in it.

That is a great idea. Most of my books are certainly not being appreciated.

I'm also going to resolve to not bring any more new books into my home until I have my current stash and reading list under control.

20. Mystic Tanning foam
21-22. Victoria's Secret lotions
23. Clinique lotion
24. Mary Kay perfume
25. Lancome cream
26. Desitin
