Latest efforts:
-2 pairs of shoes given to friend
-1 Mei Tai given to friend
-1 old poster-trash
-1 old book-trash
-45 books given to friend
-30 items taken to consignment sale (well, actually they aren't at the sale YET, but are in the car and will be dropped off tomorrow unless I have a baby before 11:00 tomorrow-possible, but not counting on it. If I do, they will be dropped off on Wednesday, LOL.)

737 + 80 = 817 (40% down!!-and the most will happen once I knwo the gender of this baby!)

We've been on vacation and I'm falling behind... but today I've eliminated some "digital clutter," reducing my email contacts from about 650 to 250.  I deleted all the people whose names I no longer recognized, all the ex-boyfriends with whom I am not on speaking terms, and all of my very old connections and colleagues from a field I don't work in anymore.  Now, if somebody hacks into my email and sends something to all my contacts, at least the only people getting the fake email from me will be people who actually know who I am.  Hooray!!!  :)  I'm gonna call that 5 items for the day -- 'cause really, digital clutter just isn't as satisfying as "real" clutter, but it takes lots of time to eliminate.

I hear you on the digital clutter, for some reason I hoard email, I am going  to make one of my missions to be decluttering my inbox. But for today I have prepared 13 more items for consignment and  5 for charity, also had a stockpile of soap and shampoo and gave a box worth to a friend in need, I'll count as 5 more items for a total of 23 items, putting me at 63 out of 2011.....

I think that I may try this for next years challenge once I meet this year's. I am really getting down to the nitty gritty with this 2011 challenge. It is really making me question my sanity in regards to my desire for minimilism.  Way to go and I am glad you are off of page 49!!!


Thank you :) I count everything that comes in the house, besides food and consumable things like toilet paper, because last year I got rid of a lot too, but I felt like we made no progress.  I think it must have been because a lot of new things came in.  So this year I decided that I wanted to know exactly how many less things we had.

-34 new things (my son turned 2) lol

-40 new things...a new package arrived from my mom..
