Well after cleaning out my grandmother's home to get it ready to sell, I must confess to bringing a box of items home. I got a new to me knife, dishes, rolling pin, and a beautiful old pitcher. However, within minutes of bringing in the new stuff, I had the box filled with old things to donate. I dropped it off at the thrift shop yesterday. So I didn't backslide too much...

Out: 731-754: kitchen items and DS' outgrown clothing.

1 DVD player sent to my brother

I went through our old bills and have a large bin to shred, it takes so long!

I put a bunch of toys/baby things in an extra bedroom to sell/give away and the kids LOVE going in there now to play. There are toys in there that they never touched and now they play with them. I still plan on getting rid of them.

I came home from work today and nearly fainted. DH has cleared off his desk and decluttered all the misc paper and odds and ends and other assorted stuff/junk/garbage. Everything appears to have found a home with a few small exceptions. He even CLEANED the desk after!! So, for all the stuff he threw away, I think we deserve 100 towards the total here.

1 skirt - charity
1 pair children's socks - charity
1 pair children's sandals - charity
1 big bag shredded paper - recycling
1 old card - recycling

Doing this has also made me reflect on how I must be more organised about using food I have in the house, before going out to buy new supplies!

I am going to try to menu plan around the things I already have, so I just need to buy the meat or vegetables and other fresh things.

As I was filing paperwork tonight, I found some lost jewelry (for 4 years!)

1 pile of papers trash/recycle
1 toy and 1 nursing stool sold on Craigslist

My numbers are going to be going up more slowly as I clear out the worst clutter for me:PAPERWORK

I hope after I clear out the papers so that I know what I have, what I need to do to stay on top of filing and paying bills, I will be able to get my paperwork done in a timely manner!

Took 5 garbage-bags-full (18-3T) to a friend who's DD is almost a year old.
Took 7 garbage bags of various clothing, toy, and linen items to Goodwill...

Drum roll... 1730/2010!!! Can I get a what-what??!!
