Omg my last productive post was like 50 posts ago! DH took DD to grandma's house and my mom helped me tackle the disaster that was the master bedroom.

1 lunch box
5 linens
3 pairs of shoes

27 items of old underwear/bras
18 misc

Today (so far) has been productive! Not entirely decluttering, but I'm almost done prepping all the baby stuff (over 100 items) for sale on ebay and I managed to declutter.


5 items donated to animal shelter

3 items returned to their rightful owner

82 outgrown/too-many-holes-beyond-repair clothes donated for either wear or scrap cloth

3 peices of small furniture


I'm not done yet, but had to document my progress for today. We still need to shred a good couple hundred documents.

post #443 of 677

We met our goal!  2016 things out!  After a garage clean out and a goodwill run, we were there yesterday!  I am so excited!  Things are starting to be much easier to find around here and I am really noticing a difference.  I want to keep going, but I am not sure what my second goal to be.  We are down to what we use now.  I can go through the office again, I am sure there is some more in there, but other than that, I've done what I can do.  I think I'm going to go back through everything again, because it seems every time I do, I at least find a few more things we can live without.  I'm just not sure what the goal should be, and I need a goal, because without it, I am not very motivated I have noticed.

Been sick, busy at work and battling an evil raccoon that thinks that underneath my porch is homeangry.gif .  So I've been a bit behind as of late.  Hope to pick up pace again.

1 stained onesie
1 pair of ripped pants
1 pair of socks
1 old light fixture
1 doll head
2 old lip balms
a ton of plastic bags my couch came in 3 months ago

I've been working hard at decluttering and packing up as much as possible in preparation for painting. When there is less to move/work around, it's far easier to paint.


I've been shredding and I've rid of 400+ documents.. and I'm not done yet! I have another box of papers to sort through and file. The shredded paper is going to our local animal shelter and I'm going to count each 4 papers as one item.


I've also put away 24 books for donation, 1 old electrical appliance for recycling and 1 barely used electrical appliance for donation. We've thrown out quite a few odd bits and bobs that were going nowhere and many cardboard boxes, but I'll just count this as "5" items.

1 bag of recycling from the car

1 roll of old under-carpet layer (whatever that stuff is called)

1 huge box full of flattened moving boxes (probably 20 boxes that were sitting in my porch)


packed for giving to my sponsor child when I visit he and his family this month:

1 Frisbee

3 bottles of nail polish

6 emery boards

5 bottles of bubbles

(I bought him new stuff too, but am packing some things from around the house they could use more than I)


i'm not on a roll these days... gotta get my nose back to the grindstone!


18 more + 873 = 894/2013

I did a complete declutter of the living/dining room today and got rid of a bunch of stuff, including various school supplies, craft supplies, old cloth diapers , fabric, and tons of CDs and cables.


I rounded to 80, which brings my total to 490.

post #459 of 677

Well, I didn't meet my goal of 1000 by May 1.  We've had a crazy past few weeks here.  I'm cutting myself some slack.  Maybe I'll set a new goal of June 1.  


I did give away a sweater today.  Tiny drop in the bucket but at least it I'm getting going again.

I am packing up my bags to visit a boy I sponsor in Haiti! I leave next week!  As I've purchased items for him and his family as gifts, I've started raiding my own house for anything else that might be useful for them that I do not need... rather than just donate, I may as well give it to my family while I'm there!  Here is my list of items I found around my house to add to the suitcases for them:


3 bunches fake flowers

1 purse

6 sheets of stickers

5 packs of bubbles

11 pens and pencils

1 ruler

4 sticky pads/notepads

5 bottles of hand sanitizer

6 hotel bottles of lotion

4 chapsticks, unused (promotional)

1 stick of deodorant

10 bottles of hotel shampoo

1 pack bandaids

1 pack cotton swabs

5 razors

1 hotel pack of shave cream

5 bars of soap

6 protein-water individual serve packs

9 packages of kool-aid

5 bottles of body wash I received as a gift years ago and haven't used

1 shower cap

1 dusting cloth

3 hot pads

6 bottles of conditioner

5 gluesticks

2 small vases

2 stick candles

1 visor

1 hat

1 Frisbee

4 bottles of nail polish (for mom)

1 pack of emery boards

2 mini perfume bottles

1 collapsible shoe box



I'm sure I will keep adding to the pile, but that's what got packed up tonight!


= 111 things being re-homed to Haiti!!!  :D



+ 7 expired hair and makeup items (while I was digging up the stuff above, found some oooold stuff!)


=118 more items gone...


total 1012/2013 -- I'm halfway there!
