If it doesn't stand out as clutter ... maybe start thinking in terms of how minimalistic you can go or want to go.

Maybe this list will give some ideas?  http://www.becomingminimalist.com/2010/05/06/101-physical-things-that-can-be-reduced-in-your-home/

1 halloween decoration - the last one in the entire house! yay!

2 razor handles

8 misc toys, 1 play firehat, 1 pillow

3 old ballet costumes, 2 old soccer jerseys, 1 tshirt from my middle school

30 books, 11 stuff animals, 8 baby toys

1 toddler chair

1 play piano toy

9 beanie babies, 9 balls, 1 frisbee

2 binders, 1 big plastic organizer, 1 pencil holder

WiFi signal locator that needs a battery


25 or so articles of maternity clothing that I don't like or doesn't fit, given to a friend



1 old candle

mini cassette (we don't even have a mini cassette player!)

1 jar lid to a glass-jar candle


I also got rid of the boxes from DH's and my wedding rings.  This was difficult for me!  If I had asked DH, he would have said "we can't get rid of those, they're from our wedding rings!!!"  But they're just jewelry boxes, nothing particularly fancy.  And it's not like we need them for anything; they're just taking up space in a drawer.  So I threw them away.  Making true headway on the clutter now!!!

That's very understandable. You are still doing the challenge though, so don't beat yourself up or anything. Counting doesn't really matter, as long as you get rid of stuff, which you are obviously doing! :)  Good luck with your move!
