12 clothing items

2 crown bags stuffed with other bags 

1 misc raffle won item

30+ junk toy pieces that I stopped counting at 30 and dumped the rest of the box lol

= 45 + 101= 

 

New total 146//2013

post #122 of 266

1 pair old "units" black stretch pants

10 items = scrap paper, wrinkled post it notes and empty match books from the front hall drawer

 

I really need to purge the magazines in two baskets in my family room.  They sit on my trunk (coffee table) and just look a mess, but I want to read them, at least the ones that apply to my job.  HELP!

On the positive side I have no subscriptions to any magazines and only pick up my work related copy at work.

 

Does anyone know if its possible to scan articles and then place them on pinterest?

10+ items have left but I'll count 10. I've started a big clean up of the laundry and bathroom area and it's going to take a good two days before it's finished.

Scanning for your own use without posting anywhere would be fine.  The librarian in me would suggest not posting on pinterest (copyright laws).

My last post said 271/2014, but that was an error...it should have been 371/2014. 

 

Today's efforts:

372-404.  33 CDs, mostly burned/not purchased and old computer software--Trashed

405-412  7 motivational CDs gifted to someone else

413-418.  6 unlabeled CD roms I went through and didn't want--Trashed

 

New total:

418/2014

$0.00

 

Pending profits:  $42 in textbooks sold online, eBay auction up to $31 with 38h left and a pile of DVDs we plan to sell tomorrow. 

 

Does anyone else make a mess while decluttering?  I pull everything out and am slow to put it back.  I currently have half the living room floor covered with things I plan to keep, but not in the living room.  I make progress and a mess all in one.  lol

Thanks for the heads up.  With so many articles on pinterest I would never have thought about that.

Here! I try to work on tiny areas at a time to keep it down but yes I definitely make a mess everything I declutter. It seems like the stuff that was a mess in one spot grew once I divide it up to where it needs to go. I'm working on some more cleaning and decluttering today. I hope to make some progress but we shall see.

 

Yesterday's additions: 

5 toys

3 prs. underwear tossed

2 decorations

I just cleared the laundry bench and EIGHTY items have left. What in the world were 80 unnecessary items doing on my bench?? Stuff just multiplies in this house! I scrubbed the bench down and ahhh.... so calm.

I have yet to finish decluttering the laundry area as there is a ton of washing I wasnt able to get to and I'm sure I'll find more stuff to part with in those piles.

My bedroom dresser tops were like that too. And all the stuff I didn't get rid of had proper homes in other areas of the house.

good article...the list at the end is thought-provoking.

 

I keep meaning to tell you I love your babies' description in your signature.

33 items so far.. mixture of trashed and put aside for donation.

I've just started on the clothes inside my room and I want to let go of 60 items of clothing today. We still have too much and I want to pare down even further. I'll be back later with an update! 

post #137 of 266

82 items of clothing are leaving! YAY! But it doesn't seem to have made a dent in the piles of cloth. :( I still have far more than I can comfortably store (which I've decided will be my limit in determining how much we can keep). I'm going to go through more clothes tomorrow and see if I can do another 50. If 50 more leave the house, then it just might be good to go in terms of storage.

Thank you!! :love I find the emoticons display their personalities perfectly (yes, I do have a mooner :o and a child who simply won't sit still.. or shut up).

Have you seen thredup.com ?  I have a few pieces of clothing I am going to consign to them.  They give you a prepaid postage bag to mail your clothes.  I don't know how it compares to local-type consignment stores, but it seems easier.
