I'm in... I may not get the 500 but it will get rid of some clutter! I am so tired of clutter in the house...
I have a few big items that I am getting rid of...
A double platform bed and a double mattress that I am giving away

An excersaucer and a bulky highchair that I don't want for babe#3
I am going to start looking for more things...
: I just made 2 Garbage bags full of sheets, kids clothes, kids shoes and some of my old clothing going through the guest room closet.
So just in an about an hour I got rid of at least 100 items... (OK... I will probably easier than I thought to get to the 500 item goal)Sept 30th
: went through my dresser and closet and got rid of some old clothes...
Oct 1st: Just did the bathroom... got rid of at Least 200 items (I stopped counting at one point) elastics, hairclips, makeup and nail polish from my teen years, expired stuff, old soaps and oils etc... and... I have no more socks that slide down or have holes anymore!no more bras that are worn to a thread or don't fit and no more underwear that I am completely ashamed of!Oct 3rd
: I was bad mama little while back and bagged up kids clothes that didn't fit anymore and stuck the bags in their closet... I just went through it, sorted and seperated by age and placed in some big rubbermaid containers that I bought a few days ago and 43 pieces of kids clothes are bagged next to the door and ready to leave... Now I have to tackle the bags of clothes that are in the shed... (will wait until DH gets home to go get them)Oct 7th
: Almost finished in the kitchen.. 47 pieces of tupperware and other misc plastics, all the cutlery that I hate and that bend (bought a new set to replace them, so 53 pieces tossed-40 pieces bought=13) 23 items in my kitchen tool drawer that I never use or were broken and 26 items from the fridge... some that were from before our move more than 2 years ago...Oct 14
: did the play room today... about 150 things are going to the local thrift store (probably a lot more than that actually)... about 100 items (not part of my total) are going to be stored in our shed for a while until the new babe is old enough to play with them... All the baby toys and books have been put together and moved to a big rubbermaid container and all going in the bottom of my closet. And the play room is finally clean and clutter free... alll the toys that are there are toys that they play with and everything has its place... best of all... all the little toys that can be sread everywhere (like hotwheels) are now up out of reach so they can't be spilled everywhere for no reason... Oct 15th
: The Freezer... scary.... I threw out a LOT of food which I hate doing but most of it was from WAY before I started my weekly menus and buying just what I need for the week + an item or two if it is on special which is then put into the next weeks menu most of the time.
Anyways... 2 Garbage bags full of discoloured and frosted, scary meats and veggies are gone... Even though it is much more I will count it as about 50 items (I did the fridge Freezer and the big upright 18 cu ft that hadn't been cleaned out in more than two years
) I also made a list of everything that went back in the freezer and all the meals that I have made in the last few weeks for when the babe is born...OCT 26th
our old Fridge, a rocking chair, 6 play mats, toilet seat cover and a few more toys...Running Total : 734!!!!
