11 sample packs of dental floss (neither of us use any of these varieties)
Expired tube of oral anesthetic
Earrings that have lost mates or that I don't like (11)
Pair of tights
Crappy socks (6 pairs)
random trash x14
Junky soap dispenser (replaced with non-junky one, but still)
2 borrowed books (set aside to go back to their owners--I count stuff when it is set aside)
I made it 1/10th of the way to goal! I got the low-hanging fruit though... it's not going to be as easy from here on out.
Although it's funny how we always know exactly what areas to tackle to get more items. I started with the pantry, but the pantry is pretty well gotten by now. It has undergone the most improvement of any area since I started this challenge. There might be a couple more things that could come out at some point, but it's a lot more manageable. Some of my drawers are also a lot better. Still to come: the basement (even though we decluttered it last year), the kid's wardrobe (needs to be catalogued and then can be weeded), some of my clothes, some stuff from my desk, under the sinks/cleaning supplies... but mostly the basement.
I have discovered I really like keeping this list. It's nice to look at it and see exactly how useless so much of this stuff I've been hoarding is! And to see the useless stuff that other people are getting rid of too.
