92 more items added yesterday, mostly easy stuff to get rid of--trash in a purse, old receipts, stuff I would not still have on the counter if I hadn't been pregnant and "lazy" the last 3 months etc.
Amazingly, moving after 10 years in one place didn't get me to 2013! But then again, I didn't actually sort through half the boxes sitting in my basement either (eek!). Pregnancy really distracted me!
So far this year:
20 or so items given to my nephew
1 towel thrown out
4 diapers sold ($36)
5 fruit pouches my son hated given to my sister's kids
1 bra to the donate pile
2 scarves to the donate pile
= 33 items/2014; $36 made
So I went on an unpacking mission this weekend. I made a small dent but I still have half a room to unpack. We put everything into the spare bedroom when we moved in...made it much simpler and I don't have boxes laying everywhere.
1 13 gal. trash bag of misc papers and items (I will count as 50 items)
1 39 gal trash sack misc items. (100 items)
3 broken toys
3 pair shoes
3 bags books (about 30)
6 empty boxes
195 + 128 = 323
Tomorrow I tackle the rest of the books, games, puzzles and mass amount of clothing that we have seem to accumulated. Hopefully I can also get to the filing cabinet and get that organized.
9 items- cleaned out kitchen utensil drawer, tossed rusty veggie peeler, broken meat thermometer, and worn, faded medicine cups & spoons
8 condiment pkgs of stuff we don't use
2 power cords for small appliances we don't have
3pcs to a broken cheese grater
5 opened pkgs of fast food utensils
1 8yr old aquarium pump used for homebirths- there was a lot of bittersweetness to this b/c it truly marks our family being done with child bearing. This pump filled the birthpool for my 5 home waterbirths.
Total for today- 28
