2008 in 2008 (we're decluttering!) - Page 11

post #201 of 271
OOOH I love this thread!!!

OK ... so, over the weekend I got rid of:

3 bags worth of things, given to my mother, for my brother's children. Various articles of clothing, as well as books. I will estimate on the low side, and say 75 items

Today, one bag worth of stuff to my MILs house (she is like the Goodwill distributor for my family). Low estimate on number of items .. 25

2 infant dresses back to one of my girlfriends, who gave them to me in case I had girl babies.

Grand total for the past 2 days, 102 items

I've never heard of this before-what a great idea!! When you propose the 2008 in a year it's actually doable. 2008/12 months = 167.33 per month.
(sorry can't help myself I was an accountant before I stayed home LOL)

This is a goal I can do! Thanks!! :

I was curious if it was doable as well thats why Im trying it out! Actually Im curious to see if I have 2008 things I could honestly get rid of. We are moving in October so my goal is to get over halfway therere before then. We shall see.
