Don't feel bad! I tend to go in spurts. So like, I'll spend one day going crazy and then I'll go a week or more without touching anything. Lately I've seen things I need to declutter, but don't want to come log them so I just leave them sitting around until I'm ready for another marathon. ROTFLMAO.gif


Ok, I feel a little better. lol.gif

 

From the office...

5 window locks from our old windows

2 magazines

9 catalogs

another bag of papers recycled/shredded (if you can't tell, paper is my clutter nemesis)

$12.51

234/2012

 

I wanted to get to 20 items today, but I didn't make it. I got a lot of other stuff done though--inventoried all my daughter's clothes, wrote a blog post, and learned how to use the pasta machine (that took way longer to get prepped than I thought it would, which chewed up a lot more time than I was prepared for).

erigeron - sounds like a very productive day! I'd love to learn how to make my own pasta.

 

Today I worked on my kitchen cupboards. I organized the tupperware so things stopped falling out every time we opened the door. I found 3 pieces I don't really use. I had streamlined my plastics last spring in a "nesting-spree" so there wasn't much in there that isn't in regular rotation.

 

I was able to whittle out my baking/cooking supplies cupboard.

I took out

5 spoons,

3 liquid measuring cups (& I still have 4!)

2 sets of measuring cups

10 bottles of really old (25 years+) food colouring & flavouring (from my DH's aunt and I thought they would be cool decorations)

1 mandolin/grater-in-a-box kit

1 cookie press

1 shot glass

1 garlic press

1 cheese grater

7 assorted beaters to 2 hand mixers I no longer own

2 silicone tops to use with bags

2 silicone egg poachers that I had to have but then discovered silicone is a pain to get eggs out of and my DH doesn't like poached eggs

8 plastic bags

3 citrus peelers from Tupperware

 

so that's 47 items today...

 

I appreciate this thread. It's helping me stay motivated and accountable.

 

519/2012 with $175 / $450

post #265 of 1026

I am going to join in.  I, Carla, need to declutter my life to make room for the things that really matter and keep my DH happier and my pocket book fuller.  TTC has made me a hoarder of things - I might use with a baby.  Still no baby and is the stuff I have really "necessary".  Also my decluttering also has a side goal of making some extra cash to fund my emergency fund.  Tonight I am going to post some items for sale on craigslist/ebay.  I keep saying I am going to do it but don't.

 

Here is 2012 in 2012!

Went through my daughters closet and got rid of:

 

1 shirt

1 pair of pants

Then 'started' to go through my closet and so far have gotten rid of:

1 jacket

4 sweaters

3 shirts

1 dress

1 skirt

1 Halloween costume (dress, stockings, tutu, and headband so 4 items)

 

so that brings my total to 70/2012

6pcs of clothing- donated

5 textbooks- sent for Amazon trade-in

The biggest reason my total jumped so big was b/c DH had to clear out a lot of stuff in our office so he could use the space for school this semester.  I had no hand in it at all last weekend, and he threw out a lot of accumulating junk b/c he has a different eye than I do.  Things he throws out I may have deemed "keepable", but I'm not going to worry about it now.

4 items from pantry that were expired (garbage)

Must admit I never look at other people's totals, I don't really care about the numbers others have. Maybe I am weird? lol.....

 

I know I will just plod away at my own pace, and that is all that matters to me.

 

But I do like to read what others have thrown out, as it often helps to give me ideas for what I can get rid of.

This for me, too.  Sometimes I get stuck and need some inspiration to look at things in a different light and through different eyes.  It makes me look at things a little more critically.
