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!

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.

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

*tripod

*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. :)
