2008 in 2008 (we're decluttering!)

Thread Starter 
I am removing 2008 things from my home by 31 December 2008.

Anyone care to join me?

I am in! I am Compacting next year also (see thread), so I should actually be able to get rid of 2008 things without adding 2008 things in their place

Yeah, I'm in. I'm terrible at counting items, though.

Sounds like you and I have the same ideas. I am also going to Compact in 2008.

I'm in...I actually am cheating a little because I started keeping count back in November. Hopefully the early start will keep me motivated. Off to go see what my previous total was....

We may be moving, so it could be easy (if DH cooperates).

I think the two challenges will complement each other nicely. It's nice to know there are others out there to get through this with

We still have our old house and we rent. We moved to another city within about 1 week of deciding to move and my husband has had trouble getting time off to dedicate to getting us out of the other house. I've gone back and worked on it on my own, but now that the babe is here, it's been difficult. We're going back for a few days for the holidays, so I told him that we need to just not worry about going through each box to see what we need. We just need to toss it all in storage and get the house on the market! I went back 2 months ago and had it repainted and repairs done. Now, it needs to get sold!

I'm *so* in with this! I've been decluttering the past few months, but still have a LONG way to go. I've really been focusing on not bringing stuff *in*, and on trying to convince family NOT to give us so much random stuff.

DH is off all week next week, so I will get started then (can I count it towards my 2008 in 2008 even though it will still be 2007? )

I think I'll count late 2007 stuff as 2008...whatever motivates, right?

I am hopping onboard with this one too. I'll try and check in at the end of the weeks with my new total.

And here two years ago when I started the 500 declutter challenge some people here were like wow thats a lot. glad to see others wanted to get rid of this much! My goal would be not to bring it back in.
