Great pictures :) Thanks for sharing. I like how the mirror in the living room makes the room look huge and reflects light. I actually thought it *was* a really big room at first.

We finally got a our new bunkbed for the 2 kids. They've been sleeping with me in a queen sized bed and it's getting crowded, and they seem ready to try their own bed. I'm excited, maybe if they actually sleep there, my partner can come back to his bed.. lol.

-2 twin mattresses

-1 mattress protector

-4 sheets

-2 pillowcases

-1 refillable travel bottle for shampoo/body wash/whatever

-5 shirts for me

-1 kids dress

-2 kids shirts

-1 baby hat


flat sheet that was hanging from the ceiling to make a fort- no room for that particular fort with the new bunkbed and I'm going to use the flat sheets that match their new bedding for forts. who has time to straighten flat sheets everyday? I don't!

old pillowcase


paring knife

2 play hot pads


6 pair underwear

I feel way behind! But I've just found the group and I'm way in!


I announced to my DH (um, first time I've ever typed that, feels awkward, I do mean husband in case I've misunderstood previous DHs and DDs and DSs and the like) that last year, 2011, would be my "year to de-clutter".  And announcing that was as far as I got.  We're talking major amounts of stuff.  DH constantly accuses me of de-cluttering his items but not my own.  Things sometimes appear in order but really I've just crammed like things into the same area awaiting ME to go ahead and de-clutter.  Projects!! **sigh**


I like this definable goal!  I just took a sack of stuff to Goodwill.  So wishing I had counted.


So If I buy something (I hate shopping, just curious) am I really subtracting that? I know personal goal. Still, brutal.

post #715 of 1026

welcome lexymom...I have been writing DH for years and it still feels a bit weird, especially on days when I am not feeling inclined to call him "Dear Husband"!  lol.gif


I don't subtract things if I buy stuff, it's a personal choice to do so or not.  Frankly I would find it too discouraging to keep chipping away at my number and would then probably give up!


Today I got rid of:


1 pair broken sunglasses





post #716 of 1026

Adding 51 for the trash- feeling slightly defeated as the vacation/ road trip plans are coming up quickly and this apartment is still FILLED.  Having a bit of panic today.

LOL! I moved to a new apartment. LOL I just had to declutter the old one. I am so happy to be rid of it!

post #720 of 1026

Its been a month but I have a few new additions:


10 pairs of old shoes (I'm ashamed to say we had over 40 pair in our garage plus prolly 15 more inside-those ten were garbage, the rest we will sell and I'll post as that happens.)

3 43 gallon bags of random trash from the garage (includes some leaves, but I'll fudge a little here!)

1 old lotion

1 outdated medicine

1 half used art kit (and by half used I mean mostly eaten by the littles...it was a source of much discontent!)

9 old makeup products

3 holey shirts

21 items of kids clothes to the consignment shop

1 blanket


50 items total


Old amount: 138/2012

New amount: 188/2012


I'd feel a lot better about the things moving out if my mother wasn't determined to have multiple things for me every time I go over there. I'm helping my dad out after surgery so its darn near daily! irked.gif I really don't need two more jars of peanut butter, a new shirt that's hideous, two belts, skirts, shoes for the boys etc etc etc...Ok, rant over!
