I think I went WAY past that already!!!

I put 7 lawn bags full of the kids clothes to a consingment shop....I just got a check in the mail!

So right there if you count each item I'm probably at 300-400.

I also got rid of a La-Z-Boy chair, a dresser, and our couch and tv stand are next!

I also filled up TWO dumpsters with just 'stuff'

I am feeling REALLY good about it!

Well, I'm starting late and don't have much to toss (I'm in a 650sq ft apt + a storage unit - mostly baby/kid stuff saving for next one).

Someone said this counts, so:

8 t-shirts recycled into cloth TP and dish rags

From 1 1/2 rooms, I am 175/500. It is probably a little more, but I'd rather undercount than overcount.

You guys are so inspiring!

I am now up to:
That includes some of DH's ugliest old clothes, old books, scrap paper galore and some cookbooks we never use.

I've decided to tackle 1 area/piece of furniture at a time. Today was the microwave/phone corner. Have to take babysteps, otherwise it's too overwhelming to start.

I took 28 books back to the library and I only checked one out. That's amazing for me - usually we have the max checked out. Threw away an old beach mat.

73/500 - Don't know if I'm going to make 500
post #214 of 268
110 DVD cases
20 VHS tapes

Gonna get that second 500 soon!
post #215 of 268
I'll play...here we go...

I got rid of 4 bags of baby clothes, our baby swing, and some other junk to the thrift store earlier this week.

I'll post more as I get rid of it...

In cleaning my bedroom last night, I packed up three garbage bags of clothes to donate and two bags of garbage - lots of mismatched socks and frayed undies, as well as random junk. I also went through the hand-me-down bin we got from my nephew and sorted out DS's clothes, keeping a very adequate wardrobe for the next few sizes and packing up the rest to donate. That added a huge box and a bag of clothes to donate.

Well- today I tore through my house looking for dd's glasses. Didn't find them : so I guess I add just 1 thing today Lost Glasses. sigh.


Next weekend our neighborhood is doing a block sale so I hope to sell a bunch of stuff that'd be too difficult to do on ebay...

I have a piece of paper on the fridge that I have been checking hashes off on as I get rid of stuff. I should add those up!

I also decluttered my scrapbooking stuff since I have a crop tonight.
