But as long as it's not stuff you use/need/want to keep, isn't that the point, since it's basically decluttering?

That's what I told him! I'm just more motivated to declutter than usual and he gets defensive when I start going through his things mwahaha

only + 4 items this morning .... and 5 yesterday apparently (have started a reminder on paper with 3 columns to try remain "in focus")

so +9 in fact

620 out of 1393


the reason i'm so happy today about  decluttering (although i fidget and feel anxious when i open a plastic bag where i shoveled it all "for sorting in later") is that

- this morning i gave 4 or 5 items of clothing at kindergarden

- this lunchtime, someone should be coming to pick up second hand books to send to Haïti

- tonight, i'll wait near the recycling bins in the next street so as to pass on a few american size 3 ring binders to an expat

i've already counted these items in previous days

BUT the big thing for me is to SEE stuff leaving, all on the same day

like ... i'm finally LEARNING the way things should have been for ... years ????

i was thinking i should be doing it .... and now, i am slowly making it happen YEAH !!!!!

Took stuff to various places this week, including the big consignment sale. A few of my stuff at the sale will be returned to me if not sold, so not counting those until I know they're gone. The rest will be donated if not sold, so they are GONE.

48 things taken to Goodwill
1 pair jeans given to friend
444 items taken to consignment sale smile.gif

so 493 + 53 = 546 items gone. 1467 items to go. 27% done!!
