I just dropped of 3 bags of stuff at good will this week. If I go through my papers I bet I can throw away at least 1 bag. I have 3 boxes boxed up and ready to ship that i'm going to e-bay. I gave 1 box of stuff to a mama to be friend of mine. So that makes 8 boxes total so far. I'm going to go with a small challenge and say I can find 15 bags/boxes to give/donate/sell or throw away.
I'm going to take today and tommorrow and do some purging in my dd's room. I know I can find 3 boxes worth in there. It really needs it and I think it will be eaisier for her if I do it now while she's visiting my dad. So she can have a clean slate this year to work with.
It really is exciting now that i've hit the point where I can start to see the space around my stuff ykwim? I have looked enviously at these challenges before and now I'm ready!
Well today I sold some books to our local used bookstore for $19!!!
They didn't take most of what I brought in so I've got 3 boxes in the car but they are ready to donate to the library (wich is still closed for new years' argh!) I dropped of 3 boxes at good will.
I didn't actually get around to working in dd's room the other day
or going through any paperwork
but i sorted through the trunk of the car so it is clear for hauling
I went through some of whats in the garage and decided what to donate what to keep what to sell. decided its ok to sell the carseat b/c i have my eye on a different model for the next baby anyway.
so my total that has actually left the house is at 7.
then i have a total of 7 more boxes that I am commited to getting out of the house via donation and e-bay or tp.
we brought a box home from dh's dads' last night though but it was mostly stuff that will get used though.
I'm thinking about upping my goal to 25 boxes of stuff
ok off to read what all ya'll are doing
