We had to move all our office furniture to get the carpets cleaned and the walls painted, so all the files came out of the filing cabinet so we could move it. I'm sloooowly going through them before they go back in and culling a bunch of the old paperwork. So...

7 files paperwork decluttered and recycled
plus freecycled/donated/trashed
1 popcorn popper
1 bag of popcorn kernels
1 bug zapper shaped like a tennis racket
1 hand blender
1 bubble blowing kit
1 plastic container
1 poster

I'm going to try to help DD1 go through her toys since she just had a birthday. Other than that, it's the filing cabinet and DD2 seems to have just gone through a growth spurt. The garage is a huge project, but I don't know if I'm gonna be able to get to that. We'll see...

I actually did more decluttering today, but it's still in a box in the living room so I don't think it counts til I get it out of the house I can't believe I'm going to make it... the crazy thing is, if we were to really move, there'd be more to get rid of! yikes- how can we own so much stuff???

Thanks for posting StoneFence and loveandmore- it's nice to see the thread still alive!
