2013 in 2013 - Page 13

post #241 of 677

I went through my daughter's dresser and freecycled all of her outgrown clothing:


*7 pairs of jeans

*3 pairs of pajamas

*baseball pants

*baseball shirt

*soccer shorts

*2 soccer shirts

*3 woolen sweaters

*5 tee shirts


I also removed her old partnerless socks and outgrown undies but am unsure if I should count them as decluttering seeing as we'll be replacing them with fresh new sizes tonight. ;)


I also gave away a bag of Mega Blocks and a wooden marble run toy on Freecycle.

Oh no I am only ay 341! That is only just under 17%. I guess I am just on track if each month was the same but I crave faster progress. I shall see what I can do this weekend.

On the plus side I found a wonderful book I will actually read now, a book I was meant to return to my dad last year, and some razors that finally matched up handle to blade for the first time in years!

I away this weekend so nothing going to happen with clear out, but during the week I rehomed a set of 6 pasta dishes, and a can of coffee grounds we didn't like. Also gave a pair of old wellies to the daycare, and tossed a pair of sons jeans with broken zip. I think that was all, bu nmight have forgotten something. This thread just keeping me motivated to keep trying, so I'm gradually just getting there. Thanks again. smile.gif

Isn't it crazy how much garbage lives with is? I went through my kitchen JUNK drawer and tossed over fourty things! And moved about another twenty to their rightful homes. And old holey socks? Why do we keep them?

I am up to over 400 now!
post #259 of 677

HappyMonkey- It really is crazy! I'm trying to be compassionate with myself as I see the pile grow and consider how much time, money, and energy has gone into the accumulation and care of the "stuff" in my home/life. I often joke that half my life is spent shoveling "stuff" from point a in the house to point b. The growing giveaway boxes prove it. ha!


*7 cookbooks

*2 pairs of shoes

*4 bottles of chemical reeking washable tempera

*box of 48 Crayola colored pencils

*4 plastic children's plates


*never used ink stamps

*lace doilies

*2 floral design books

*box of National Geographic back issues

*dried bouquet 

*5 nature study books

*outgrown winter hat

*large metal mixing bowl

*box of paper crafting supplies

*tealight candles

*tea light candle holder

*box of nearly new hair styling products





Have any of your read this blog post about "aspirational clutter"? Link: http://www.365lessthings.com/cindys-weekly-wisdom-is-your-clutter-a-pile-of-should-ready/

I've been mulling over it today as so much of what I've been purging in recent weeks has been precisely that: shoulds and aspirations that will never authentically and truly be me. I figured the message is a welcome one to many of the posters on this thread. :)
