You can count it either way. We all pretty much make up our own rules to fit our own situations. My advice-count each one. It'll make your count go up fast and motivate you to keep going!
Yesterday I got rid of 198 items that are going in my garage sale. I brought them over to the house where the sale will be, never to return to my house! I have 42 baby outfits plus some other things that I haven't brought over yet. Then I filled another bag with sale items plus a coat and a sleeper. My original goal was 100 items in the sale, so I am VERY happy!
Then, I started assembling a box of baby stuff for my best friend and I have 10 items in that so far, but can't count them until I give them to her. All in all, it was a pretty productive day.
DH is even getting into the swing of it. I challenged him to find 25 items from the garage and 25 from his closet for the sale. He so far has about 12 from the garage...plus he's thrown out over 40 things! I'm just not going to tell him that I get to keep ALL of the money from the garage sale!
So far I'm at about 700/2007 for the year.
