post #541 of 677
I'm having such a hard time finding stuff to declutter....!!! My house is not crowded at all and i'll have to start decluttering things i'm attatched to even though we dont actually use them. We got some nicd gifts for he house from MIL last time she came to vsit and i might just start giving away the extra ones. She actually gave us 97 gifts because we had just moved in to this new house. That means i have doubles of some things and some really cute knick knacks i really dont plan on displaying.

Right now i'm 75/590, wich is a lot slower than i intended, so i guess i'll just have to declutter faster!eyesroll.gif

You guys wish me luck!

Decluttering kind of took a stand still since DH was retrenched over 2 weeks ago, but I started to get back into it yesterday and today. A garbage bag full of clothes have left. There were 60+ items in there, but I'm going to keep it at a solid 60 for counting purposes. There were also a further ~ 30 general home and toy items and 23 tops/pants that were given to me by family that I decided were not my style (i.e. looked awful on me) after all. To say I'm sick of looking at clothes is an understatement.. Can't wait to rid of more tomorrow! Even my clothes horse 4yo DD told me today that she was and I quote "sick of all these clothes everywhere".

Joining in kinda late but I've been participating from the sidelines since last year. I have already decluttered 2049 items (kept track on my blog) this year due to a couple of moves into much smaller places but now I have to start a new wave of decluttering just because once again we find ourselves with more things than we can comfortably fit in the place we have.

 

Starting a new count:

 

gave away 20 moving boxes and 6 bottles of partially used face cleaners to someone who needed them

donated 66 books

Gave my daughters 148 household items for their new apartment

Threw away or recycled 26 items (broken sunglasses, old toiletries, boxes from our moves, old year books etc)

Sold 54 books, 5 collectible pins and one lanyard

 

NEW TOTAL: 326

I've been working for 8 hours non stop :dizzy on the clothes and I'm happy to report that not only are the clothes no longer a conglomerate of colors taking up half of our bedroom (they're now categorized and folded), but a further two full garbage bags have been packed for drop off..

 

That's another 128 items of clothing I will no longer have to  hang.gif  

 

I've reached my maximum for today.. Need to do more tomorrow as I've got another two tubs of clean clothing to go through plus ALL the laundry that is yet to be done.

Thank you! :) 

You can read my blog at lifewithoutmanual.wordpress.com, but it's been just mostly for myself to keep track of how far I've come in the decluttering journey, so pretty borring. ;-)

 

I am at a stand still right now. I have pulled a few things out for donations and then I started feeling like I should try selling them instead even though they're not gonna be worth much. We need to come up with a lot of money by January 1st, and donating now makes me feel like I'm just throwing the money away. :(

Thanks so much for sharing! I will be sure to check it out :)

 

If you need the money, then sell the stuff and don't feel bad about it all.. even if it's only going to be worth $10 or $20 in the end, it's still a win win situation.

I've had a big decluttering day. 107 items have left! That's lots of clothes, car seat inserts, belts, kid costume jewelry, toys (soft and hard) and a bunch of random stuff. I'm so happy! I have been staring at this pile for over a year now (I kid you not) and it (and other stuff) was taking up our entire bath tub. The kids haven't had a bath in over a year. Okay, that sounds gross. They've been having showers, but not actual baths in the bath tub. It's all gone now! Bath tub is clear, been scrubbed within an inch of it's life and we celebrated by having a bubble bath lol

Wow, almost 4 months since my last post.  Since then, we had our garage sale, sold about 35 items and made $85 from it.  Was able to get rid of a garbage bag full of misc. items(23 items) and have totally lost steam since.  I probably won't make the 2013 goal, but I can keep pressing forward.  My mud room is full of items meant for consignment as craigslist, I hope to get as much of that done before the holidays
