I am so sick of this!! I am so happy to think I"m getting rid of something, then it sits outside for days while I email back and forth with the person, and they never show up! Then I'm back where I started, trying to get the thing out of my house! I am getting really fed up.

No, I count it- I can't drive to the thrift shop every time I fill up a bag, so I count it as it goes into bags. I keep the bags in an unobtrusive closet, so for all intents and purposes it is gone!
My goal for Feb. will be 300. It was doable in Jan. I cleaned out 2 cabinets in the kitchen that had become places to stuff junk over the 4.5 yrs we've lived here. It felt GREAT to throw out so many useless bits of plastic and fuzzy gross things just sitting in junk containers. Many more cabinets and drawers to go!
I don't know how to count miscellaneous bits of crap, so I'll just say 30, plus at least 5 other toys and items of clothes since the beginning of the month.
