108 - Plastic nipple container that I will NEVER use. Why did I save it?

110 - Stack of catalogs 12" high.
111 - several plastic name tag holders that I was saving to find a use for.
attempted to get money for late 1990's silk Asian style suit with giant shoulder pads - apparently not back in style yet.
I've got a few things set aside for donations but I don't want to count them until they're actually gone.
Only 39 more to go and I could have counted a few more things individually.
Have also reorganized my in-box - got this tip from a book.
I have a bunch of hanging folders and some sticky-post it notes. Everything goes in a folder and it's labeled temporarily with an ACTION verb.
So I've got folders that say: BUY theatre tickets; DONATE to University; BUY - LL Bean $10 coupon; Register - Swim lessons. And then I can SEE everything I'm supposed to do. The idea is that the post-it notes aren't permanent and they aren't HAVE to dos. They are just there to allow you to choose to do things. Once it's done, the note gets thrown out and the folder stays put for the next thing - like pizza coupons that expire or causes you MIGHT donate to. If I don't use the coupons no big deal, but they are there and labled in case I do want to use them. I had been just keeping things in this box, but more things got put on top them and then you forget about them etc. If there's a date I think you are supposed to put that on the tab, too. I have great hopes for this system!
And - I don't have the hanging folder thing yet - but I didn't let that stop me from getting all of the folders ready with their temporary post-it tabs. THis is progress. They are kind of standing in my in-box now. It's working OK. I'll get a hanging file things later.
Good for you. I once burned a pile of old bad work reviews in a ceremony at my church. I realized that whenever I cleaned up, I came across the file and chose to read it and then felt bad all over again. No need to have THAT hanging around. And now, I have this great burning memory of them. Like starting anew!
Thanks girls...it felt strange throwing a diary out, part of me was saying, "this is my history", but why should we hang on to part of our history that makes us feel miserable?
I am so fired up to declutter more today, this is just for starters...
93. body balm I don't like
94. pile of coathangers
Can someone re-assure me that I don't need 5 sets of measuring spoons?
I was thinking of keeping 2 -
one near the sink and one near the spices. I plan to get hooks to mount them.
That leaves 2 partials, that I was thinking of putting in the camping equipment plus the single sliding one. Which ones should I keep? I guess the partials should go and I can keep the slider.
