2008 in 2008 January Thread - Page 2

post #21 of 307
Finally I hit the trunk of the car. (A trip to Costco for diaper wipes shows that we have no room in our Jetta to just let stuff drift around in the trunk.)

To add to the grand total:

(14) flat rate priority envelopes sliding all around my trunk are now being recycled

Total: 22/2008

I just cleared out the main bathroom vanity (which is the only storage in the bathroom...no shelves or other closets) and got rid of 12 more things.

Is it okay to share pics of our progress on this thread? I hope so! If its not okay, I'll delete the link. If it is, here are some pictures of my decluttered vanity:
(they have notes on them, if you move your mouse over the picture)

I cleaned off a stack of holiday catalogs and magazines from my bedroom vanity.
I need to find a recycling center. Any ideas on how to find one? I'll go check my city's website in a minute.

Well I decluttered a LOT of stuff in the last couple of months while we were getting ready to move and getting into our new house but now the holidays have made more clutter and some wonder fairy dropped off about 8 boxes and bags of ??? on my porch and 2 more plastic crap toys. How sweet of them. So I guess I'll join too. I'm going to start tomorrow by hitting up these bags of ??? Right now I'm off to bed.
