I am on this too. I have had a couple of weeks where I managed to get rid of one small shopper every day - in rubbish or to charity. Then I tackled the filing cabinet, the archive boxes and dd's bookshelves. The recycling boxes were fuuul that week!
I know it must be less clutter because I saw it go out of the door, but I can still see more stuff........
SO I went through our wardrobe and underbed storage and filled a big charity sack which came through the door yesterday (an omen?) I have been holding on to my old clothes for no earthly reason and things that people gave me for dd, and bedlinen which we don't need and old t-shirts for rags. I just do't want to bin everything. Mmm sound familiar? I threw away some old/holey/uncomfortable underwear I that has been cluttering up my very small drawer too. And now I realise I have only 5 pairs of good pants (panties to you I think).
I also convinced ds2 that some of his clothes absolutely do not fit anymore and put those in the bag too but now I realise that he has next to no clothes other than school uniform and ds1 has no clothes to hand down yet. Oops jumble sale here we come.
Oh and a big thing was that we got rid of our old broken sofa. Dh and I nearly died laughing fighting to get it outside in the dark but the council collected it at 7am so we were spared the embarrassment of our neighbours seeing what we have been sitting on all this time
We are finally getting new flooring to replace the stinky 20 year old carpet in our only living room next week and it will have to be clear of everything by Wednesday am and we won't be able to put anything back in until Friday pm eeeek!
Dh has the week off so he will have to get his finger out and be ruthless all by himself (he has been putting it off) He keeps saying 'Oh not now, I just can't face it' Duh. Welcome to my world.
