I'm excited to be venturing close to the halfway mark of the 2013 decluttering goal 1.5 months before moving day. :)

So, should I deduct when I bring new things in?  I purchased 25 pieces of clothing for my DDs at the 1/2 price consignment sale today.  I hate to bring more things in as I'm trying to clear out, but we do need some summer clothing.

 

Also, I'm wondering if I should could stuff my STBX is taking out.  Tonight I'm going to pack up the last drawer of clothes that he has in the dresser.  Since it isn't mine, perhaps it doesn't count.  But I'm doing the work, so maybe it does?

 

Maybe I could just cancel out the new clothes for the children with STBX old clothes?

I'm a rookie but I say if you do the work, count stbx's stuff. Also I wouldn't subtract for stuff you get, otherwise groceries would be a huge PITA lol.

Ok, I'll count STBX's stuff that leaves the house as long as I'm packing it.  It really will make a difference in the clutter, so, I'll count it.  I gathered 12 random things out of the bathroom cabinets for his bag.

 

Tomorrow is trash day, so I focused on throwing out the old rancid smelling lotions and mostly empty bottles, etc, from the bathroom.  Even found some old HPT and ovulation digital testers and strips.  Won't be needing those anymore.  eyesroll.gif  Total of 28 things trashed or recycled.

 

Adding in 3 huge cardboard boxes to recycle, my total is 43 for today.  Not bad for a quick 30 minute run through!  Woo hoo!

I keep seeing things on other people's lists and thinking I want that! Good thing we are not all close or we would trade clutter.

I am up to 867 and have really slowed down. Now that the main areas are done it is getting harder. Got about another 5 ones today though. Mostly cheap toys worthy of throwing out.

MamaRuga I don't count things coming in but you will see you start to think more when you bring things in to make sure you really need them. Congratulations on starting your clean out and restoring your house to how you wish it to be.

Oh happy monkey you are so right! I would be tempted!

I think it's the end of the workday so:
1 scale
4 champagne flutes
1 immersion blender
1 indoor grill
11 board games
1 water bottle
1 frisbee
1 cake server/punch bowl
So 21 more:
