2.5 months until moving day and I'm decluttering in a focused and liberating way. 


Sold, gifted away, or sold this weekend: 


7 cookbooks

12 mugs

8 specifc baking pans (think shaped pans and madeline tin)

27 cookie cutters

13 various gadgets, extra spoons, etc

16 cloth napkins

2 tablecloths

1 picnic basket

Cusinart ice cream maker

donut maker

electric knife

extra rolling pin

2 metal rectangular pans

7 vases

a large box of floral arrangement supplies

a large box of sewing patterns, notions, and fiberfill



extra mattress & box spring

garden gazebo


rocking chair

wicker furniture set


large bag of bed linens

old comforter set

a large bag of clothes, one for each family member

a bag of baby clothes found hidden in a closet


crystal flowers

5 framed prints

3 wooden shelves

7 Precious Moments figurines

a large box on seasonal decor

wooden wine rack

a large box of outgrown toys



I honestly feels as if a HUGE weight has been lifted off my shoulders and that more than mere material possessions have been shed. Focusing on deowning and realizing that anything I hold onto is depriving somebody else of using this item has been a tremendous focus as I purge in anticipation of my family's upcoming move.

More tidying - cleaned out kids drawing/craft drawer, and tossed old crayons/pens etc. Also 2 old pairs of socks with holes. 

I'm not great at keeping count, but I like being accountable, and this thread is just keeping me in the mode of having a clear out. So thanks for the companionship. smile.gif 

Guessing 20 things. So that gets me to 176/2013

This is so much fun! I thought it would be hard to keep the momentum.... But I find it exciting each time I get to cross off a square on my 2013 chart! I went through my closet again after putting away laundry and found about another ten things. Everywhere I look there is something I don't love in my house. It is great! My house already feels easier to manage. Tomorrow afternoon I have a babysitter, and want to find 25 more things to get rid of. Yahhh. I am up to 259 (from 57 last time I reported).

love this... ive also been thinking along similar lines lately and it has really helped me think about decluttering not as "getting rid of something i might someday need" and more like "giving something i never use to someone that could actually use it and may need it... and if i ever need it again, i can buy it again"   (i've never had this need to re-buy though)
