yay, I`ll join! I am hoping to move our family bedroom upstairs, into a converted attic/space that needs a little work, and make the not-very-well-used room below it into a family room with a nice toasty woodstove. A good time to declutter.

(plus it is monday morning and I could use the motivation!)

1. 2 pair of shoes
2. Bag of maternity clothes - maybe 1 dozen pieces.

Only #2 has actually left. The rest are in my car.

Not sure if I can keep up with this thread, but I'll try because I'd love to get 150 things OUT of my house!

9 pairs of shoes
1 pile of craft things that are falling apart
1 broken toy
1 pile of papers
2 books
2 random shoe boxes thrown into recycling
1 hello kitty make up bag

Does it count if you put things to work in their intended purpose?

1 bed ruffle put back on bed after years being off
2 emergency blankets placed in the car
1 gentle cycle garmet bag placed where I can use it (instead of under the sewing table, what was it doing there?)

129 things to go!

Now, what to do about the pack and plan and stroller? I should be vicious and just kick them out...but what if I run into someone who needs them?

7. Bag of gender neutral new born clothes to go to neighbor.

8. Another pair of toddler shoes.

9. WEIRD - ugly - homemade Christmas shirt to go to Good Will.

10. Bag of out-of-style and slightly stained baby clothes to go to day care for extras.
