Please tell me I'm not the only one out there with scrunched up undies. :

Sorry, I had to crack up at this. I did my major underwear purge in January. I think I got rid of something like 40 or 50 pairs! I had a lot that were really old, like from late elementary school and jr. high.

well as the month is closing out dh is getting into the de-clutter a little bit more. he actually went through the computer parts in our e-bay closet. sorted them out. threw away just a few things and decided we could sell a few more.

i finally got the kitchen table (currently stored in our garage : ) decluttered so he can refinish it. then we can sell the one we're using now.

i went through the toys in the living room again, and the stuff in the e-bay closet. some i need to go list on tp, craigslist, etc NOW . some is yardsale material. (and i just realized i still have time to put an ad in the paper if i want to have on saturday. ) and some is actually keepable.

kurt finally got started on the computer hes buildng for my mom. so that'll be de-cluttered soon.

i'm feeling good about what i've done

you should too!

I sold about 30 items at Once Upon a Child. I'm sure it was a little more, but I'll say 30.

that's where i'm heading next. I have all my underwear since I moved back here in 12/2001! I've gotta go through my dresser...my clothes don't fit so I need to try everything on and decide if I want to keep it

Okay, I do have some more undies I need to purge. Here's a fun underware story. I knew a few guys in college whose Mom bought them literally 30 pairs of underware so they would always have clean underware! They figured they'd visit home once a month, so the Mom could wash them them! Okay so now I'm motivated to look again at my undies!!

Last night I found a stash of things left over from last year's garage sale. Mostly baby clothes, so I threw them in the wash and they'll head to the consignment store this weekend, along with my What to Expect the First Year book (unread) and a baby t-ball set. (Does one child really need three of these?????) Oh-and a weird light up noise making plastic dog thing given to DS by a friend, and a play kitchen I'm getting rid of (since I bought a different one : ) I didn't count yet, but will add them to the total once I deliver them.

I also brought a bag of stuff to the crisis pregnancy center-baby care products that we'll never use. Tonight I'm dropping off two jars of babyfood and a two boxes of baby cereal to a friend who uses them. I keep my list at home, so I'm not sure what my total is, but I'm at about 400/2007 for the year. I'd better get cracking! I only count actual "stuff"-not junk mail or papars or anything like that, so I either need to start counting it or really get rid of a lot more stuff!

Now that the weather's nice, I can bring DS outside with me and really tackle the garage. That'll add to my total very quickly.

I counted this morning and I am at 512/2007 (my goal for the year.) I also have several bags of stuff waiting to be delivered, so hopefully by the end of next week I'll be close to 600.

Hitting the 500 mark was really motivating to me. I think I may actually hit my goal! I wonder if I can do 2008 in 2008.
