Hey all,


I've gained a sudden interest in decluttering, so here I am. It's cool to be joining others who are also on this journey. I'll post more about what I am decluttering (and why) in a bit.

2 Items off the mental clutter list: Opening a bank account for DS and opening a Registered Education Savings Plan for DS.  Edited to add 30 hangers to be gotten rid of.  Anyone know if metal hangers are recyclable?  Or should I just take them to the dry cleaners?

I finally tackled the hallway closet/medicine cabinet. I thought I would find more things to throw out or donate.

1 lid

3 expired meds

6 empty packaging

3 old bandaids

2 old single use wet wipes

2 piles of old recipts

1 bra

2 items from fridge

contact lens container

2 body paint

2 dried up mascara



1 iron-on patch (wrong color)

1 cup

1 baby plate

sand timer

1 zipper


Donate to make hygiene kits for women's shelter

box of ear plugs

perfume sample

7 dental floss

2 tooth brush

1 hand sanitizer

1 lotion sample


Used up

7 items from freezer and pantry (I'm counting those because those were things we don't usually eat/use and they have just been sitting there and I was tempted to just trash them)


I also brought some items to the consignement store and listed some on Craig's List but I won't count them until they have sold.



$ 42.58

I haven't been on MDC in a long time and just found this thread. I want to get rid of excess this year.  I am going to join in even though I'm a month late in starting.


I took a box to the Goodwill last week, so I'm counting that:


4 towels/washcloths

1 Plastic file box

4 clothing items

1 Decorative plate

4 books

4 jigsaw puzzles

2 necklaces

1 large toy dump truck



21/2012 so far.
