2011 in 2011 - Page 11

post #201 of 1617

I failed to reach 2010 in 2010! I'll try again. I'm sure I have 2011 objects that I would be happier without. wink1.gif

Just posted a bunch of stuff on Craigslist - hopefully it will sell and I can declutter it!

I don't think that's failing-- I think it's awesome that you decluttered 1800+ things!


Really have to agree with that statement!  That's excellent!


Cleaned off the top of the microwave and trashed     recycled  some old junk mail.  The top of the microwave was hard, there were these little things for items that need to be "fixed" but have been sitting there, in some cases, for YEARS.  Recycled a book that Charlie tore up, kept thinking I'd tape it, and decided it wasn't worth it.

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!



Friend came and help... My living room was COVERED in stuff...


Boxed up 4 large boxes of donate items. Friend guesstimated 40+ clothing items in each box for 180+ items.


Then I organized the clothes into sizes and bins and they are waiting to go to the attic!


It has opened up a huge closet space in the girls bedroom and in the playroom closet! Now DH and I can go through the playroom and declutter, organize and simplify!

NEW TOTAL 19/2011  


I did get 4 free after rebate binders at Staples today and 6 legal pads w. graph paper and assignment paper on them. These are needs for homeschool for DS.  He needs the binders for his CTY classes as they build on each other and its easier to keep things organized and not take apart the binder.

Joining! smile.gif My house is so cluttered. It's supposed to be a 4 bedroom, but 2 of the bedrooms are completely given over to junk, to the point that we can hardly walk thru them. DS is almost 2, and before long he will be too big to sleep in the crib by my bed, so one of those rooms needs to become his bedroom! We have a LOT of purging to do...


In the back of my truck, ready for Goodwill:


1 child riding toy

6 toys from xmas, new in boxes to be returned

11 toys no longer played with


18 / 2011



post #218 of 1617

9-10. Empty medicine bottle, empty package.

11. Baby Play mat - sold for $6.


11/2011 (gee, only 2000 more to go....)


12. broken Barbie that DD would have wanted to save, and DH told her he could fix, but probably won't be missed and DH has NO time to fix crap.


1999 to go.... Is it better to count down or up do you think?

post #219 of 1617
