Welcome 2007: January Decluttering Challenge... - Page 20

post #381 of 459
Today was a HUUUUUGE day, and it's only 8:10am! I have the day off, so I may add to this list quite a bit today. I was contacted by the Cerebral Palsy foundation last week, asking if I had anything I could donate. I laughed, because I already had several bags of clothing ready to go. So, sitting out in my driveway waiting for pickup are:

-3 large garbage bags crammed full of clothing (already counted in a previous count)
-1 box of shoes (already counted)
-1 box of coats (a few of which I was planning on selling, but decided donating is nicer - and easier!)


-a mixer
-a coffee maker
-coffee filters for the coffee maker
-1 set of dishes
-1 set of cups
-1 set of large cooking utensils
-2 large mixing bowls
-1 collander
-1 salad bowl
-87 toys
-27 articles of clothing (a box I found in the garage that I intended on getting rid of about 4 years ago!)
-1 printer
-1 vcr with remote
-17 VHS tapes

My total to date:
515!!

while its not out of the house yet i did wheel the bassinet to the door. (too wet to load it into the car tonight) i'm lending it to a friend and i am so ready to get it out. i might take the swing to her tomorrow too. and dh put an ad out for the drumset.

i went through olivia's clothes today and we got rid of a few pairs of pants, a pair of undies, some doll clothes...not quite enough to fill a box but i'm getting close. (its a biggish box )

went through the closet in the computer room and found more empty boxes to toss. (i did have to empty some of them) i'm working on makeing that closet my e-bay/TP/yardsale/re-gifting/donation closet. moved some cds and tapes out of there and into the garage where i am storing them until we get some cd storage thingiess. i found a shirt my mom got olivia that i have been looking for. yay!

not updating my sig till the stuff goes though

I looked through the pile of discarded clothes in teh laundry room and found 3 pairs of Luke's outgrown pants that weren't worthy even of donating so they got tossed.
post #400 of 459
I haven't posted in a couple of weeks but I have been keeping track of what I decluttered. I am adding 125 items decluttered from my house. This brings my total to 285/500. There is no way I am going to make my goal in the next fews days. I will be joining the February challenge.
