Whoo-Hoo! This is fun. I cleaned out half my room (it's really horrible) and I have 12 bags. About 6 of trash stuff, 3 of too small clothes I put on freecycle, 2 bags of too small or too big clothes I am keeping (maybe not actually getting rid of, but they are bagged up and in the closet where they belong). And 1 bag of misc stuff for freecycle. So 12/20 bags!!!!

Isn't it great? I'm so enjoying all of the empty space in my house. I've found that being in rooms (in my house or others' homes) with a lot of clutter makes me really nervous. Maybe I'm getting a little Zen-like in my old age?

Iced in here today in the 'nati with the kiddies home from school. Great day to declutter -- another box of stuff! My dining room table is full! Now if the weather clears, I can load up the car and get to SVDP.

I feel a little sick about it today, though, when I realize how much sh** I've accumulated for no good reason. What a waste of money and energy. <SIGH>

I feel like Scarlett O'Hara -- "As God as my witness, I'll never fill this house with useless crap again!"

We took all the boxes to the recycling center today, I had already counted most in Jan, yes they were in dhs truck for that long...but we added two dish packs filled with packing paper that I guess we were saving for the next time we moved. We did try to freecycle these 4 times, but 4 no shows : and figured we would get rid of everything at once.

So far I've thrown out 6 things from cleaning out my purse and doing 5 min. tidy ups in the kids' rooms.

Todays count: 329/500

I did one last run through of the kitchen and went through some old craft supplies. I'll be hitting the den next week. That room is scary. So if I don't post in awhile you might want to send someone to come look for me.

Have a great weekend!
