Ok, I'm not counting things until they leave the house so I have huge piles around my front and back doors currently happytears.gif


But here's what's actually gone:


1 old washcloth that stank

1 huge fake flower that was falling apart

1 expired teething gel that my mother gave us and we never used

1 broken toy piece

1 expired diaper rash creme

1 huge heavy broken candle holder


and recycled


1 outdated map of Canada


total: 7/2011 so far. 


Can't wait for Wed when I do a whole bunch of drop offs!  And I have a bunch of stuff listed on Freecycle that I hope goes soon.

1 little piece of computer equipment



2 toy recorders (noisy toys OUT!)

1 George Foreman grill (I can see that part of my kitchen counter again!!  Hooray!) 



2 broken toys



1 holey sock that is now wearable again (that counts, right?)



2 holey socks from the drawer turned into dog chew toys



2 items to Mom


And, I'm also taking a giant box of outgrown clothes over to my mother's house to store there, but I don't think that counts as removing clutter since I'm just moving it to someone else's house... there's no room here to store anything at the moment...

This afternoon I worked on the storage space under our kitchen benches. I'd cleaned it halfheartedly a few times before, mostly just rearranging all the clutter and junk. This time I made myself toss or find new homes for almost all the stuff packed in there. I even fixed it where the bottom was becoming detached from the bottom of the bench. Then I filled it with our kitchen tablecloths, place mats and napkins, and a few cookbooks, so now there's no more space for clutter to collect there!


empty cardboard box
2 cookbooks
2 magazines from 2005
stack of recipe clippings
2009 Ikea catalog
stack of receipts from 2008
stack of misc. papers


wad of stickers
used twist-ties
plastic mini disc sleeve

All to donate box:

And, I went through a HUGE pile of leftover material from making diapers and cut them into useable pieces for my quilt- I say that counts as 1 decluttering point! Also, I made two diapers tonight out of two old t-shirts and an old ripped sheet so +1!




1 atlas

7 flat diapers I have never used put in the kitchen towel drawer

That's funny I did the same thing two days ago...unsubscribed from a whole heap of random things.


It's nice to not see so many emails in my inbox this morning.

Yay for seeing the carpet in the master bedroom!



And 7 brand new pens that didn't work... No wonder the package of 10 cost me $0.25... It's not worth spending money on stuff that doesn't work just because it's on sale... wash, rinse, repeat!


Tomorrow a friend should be coming to help go through the last couple outgrown clothes sizes!

post #180 of 1617

Dropped off a bag of hand-me-downs at a friends' house today - at least 25 items. 120+25 = 145/2011.


I love seeing everyone's itemized lists! I'm not sure I'm going to be able to get that specific -- I'm afraid it will slow me down -- but I really love reading them.
