October decluttering challenge - Page 10

post #181 of 193
I cleaned out some candy we'd piled up from various holidays. Not sure how I should count that. I also found homes for some items. So, technically they weren't thrown out, but they are gone from the corner of the kitchen!

I'm going to count 5 items decluttered.

I decluttered/organizes my DS toys today. I am giving away over half of them to a needy family.

What a weekend!! I got rid of one bank, 4 stupid little trinkets, 1 game, 45 baby things (clothing), 7 books, 64 cds/dvds, 1 coin collection, 9 pieces of jewelry. DH got on board (though not exactly willingly) and got rid of about 100 items of clothing!! I don't think I'm going to make my goal, but I'm really happy about this weekend. Also, I have a ton of stuff in the sell pile, they just aren't sold yet. When they go though, it will probably be hundreds more. And the only things I threw away were the game, bank and trinkets b/c they were broken. Everything else was sold or given away.

I got some more decluttering done in the kitchen today. Mostly cleaned out the plastic stuff like kid's cups/plates/bowls and rubbermaid leftover containers.

68 items total!! every time we eat out the girls want to bring home the kiddie cups from the restaurants. They were really starting to pile up. That brings my numbers to


I'm too close to my goal to give up now. I'll have to find the time to get more of the kitchen done or the girls' closets.

Well haven't gotten even close to my goal. I plan on doing more next month so I add what I didn't do this month to my goal for next month.

I got rid of 38 items of clothing my youngest has outgrown. I'll give them to a friend tonight to give to her granddaughter!

That gets me to 484/500!

If I can get rid of just 16 more items today I can make my goal!!

Not sure if I can do it. We've got Halloween plans about to be underway...shoot. Well, I might be up late throwing out those 16 items! I'm determined!

I made my numerical goal, and even got rid of some bulky items (the baby gate and a drying rack) that weren't being used. Still didn't get to that dang junk drawer. Next month!

The last 100 items was the hardest.
