I have never posted here before- I'm Valarie, a compulsive de-clutterer, but I am married to a pack rat!!! So, in the last three years of marriage I have been working with DH to cut down on useless worldly possessions... so far, so good...
For this month I am putting my goal at 500 items, but I don't know how everyone here counts- I've noticed it is a personal preference. So, I'm counting clothes by piece, but a handful of small items is only going to count as one...
So, in the last week I have tossed 7 contractor bags worth of clothing, about 250 items. I have also tossed 2 contractor bags worth of trash, about 100 items. So, I am right at 350 over-all... only 150 more to go!
I completely cleaned out my master closet (hence the 7 bags!) and it looks amazing... we have very few clothes left, but enough for our needs- beautiful! Most of the trash has come from my craft room/office, which was so junked up after the move we couldn't even walk about in it! Our master bedroom... well, that is a whole other story... it is not gross, but it is not organized. I am saving it for last b/c I have the most motivation to get it pretty.
Anyway, I am going to keep working on my craft room tonight, and hopefully get to my bedroom by tomorrow... wish me luck!
Nice to meet you!
