I'm in. I was no where near the 2010 in 2010 goal, but it did make some progress last year. I still haven't moved all my stuff from my parents house from my move last July. Mostly because I'm waiting on some storage units to be built and all the stuff there is in a storage pod while my parents are remodeling their house.


I still have plenty of stuff to go through at my house though.


Mental note: 2011/365 = 5.5 items per day, 11 items every other day, 35.5 per week, and 165 items per month.

I'm joining also. I completed the 2010 in 2010 with a few weeks to go, so I started counting on the 20th or 21st. I'm going from 12/20 to 12/20. I'll post my list in a bit, but I have to get some laundry completed today.

I'm behind in our Motivated Moms Checklist, so I am playing a bit of catch up.  Luckily, one of the tasks was to organize the master bedroom closet and I eliminated the following:


2 empty shoeboxes

2 vintage dresses (this hurts)

running shorts

tank top

black shirt

2 pairs of PJs

bathing suit

7 homeless socks

biking shorts

fishnet knee highs (any idea why I'd ever HAVE these?!)

8 pairs of underwear

1 set of lingerie


bringing my total to 30/2011

OK! I woke up before DS this morning so I decluttered the floor of my closet. Great start to the New Year to have a clean closet floor!


35 old bras and underwear tossed.

9 gently used bras to donate (Not sure if they take them but I can't bring myself to throw them away!)

2 nursing bras to consignment store

1 grocery cart cover to donate

1 lone mitten tossed





20 expired medicines/ bathroom stuff

4 items returned to stores





4 tank tops, upcycled into scrubby dishcloths

1 huge bag of baby clothes, given to a friend, I'll count as 1 though since technically I decluttered the items awhile ago, just needed to get them out of the house!

1 DVD set, donated

3 candlesticks, donated

1 set of coasters, donated

Other misc. donated items (I'll just count as 5)

I went thru my kitchen cabinets and had 2 bags of old food that I tossed.

*3 annoying toys


My next plan of action, the shed outside. The people that lived here before me filled the shed with bags of garbage. So that is all going to the dump next week. Off to tackle the kids room....oh joy

post #73 of 1617

Count me in for this challenge!  I announced last night at our New Year's Eve party that I was taking on a "2011 items in 2011" decluttering challenge as my New Year's Resolution, and my husband got all upset 'cause he assumed that I was going to be getting rid of 2000 of HIS things and 11 of mine. :)  Can you tell which of us is the hoarder???

post #75 of 1617

I'm in! The holidays gave me an excuse to slack off on my 150 before Christmas, but it's new year and time for a fresh start. Just got back from my parents' house where we had Christmas #2 so I am currently going through all of DS' clothes and toys. Will be back later to post!

1 combined "Star Wars legos" with "regular legos" recycled empty box

1 combined box of playdough supplies with the rest of playdough recycled empty box

1 random set of papers from october, some recycled, some burned




Gotta talk to DD about Barbies.  She's 12 and I haven't seen her play with them for 2 years, they can probably go.

pending:  21 pieces of jewelry from old exes to take to the pawn shop.  (Someone tell me why I was hanging on to all that stuff?  Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but they're better off as cold hard cash!!)
