Thank you!

I am tackling the third floor today - which acts as our playroom, sometimes the kids camp out and sleep up here, its where the computer is, and we have some storage up here, too.

So far, I donated 19 usable things and got rid of 3 bags of trash, plus a part of the air hockey table that is on its way out (I just can't move it, its too heavy for our awkward hallway).

My total is now: 44/2008

Cleaned out a cabinet and got rid of some expired food. I also went through and chucked some stained, mate-less socks.

Tomorrow is going to be my big declutter day of the week. My dh is off of work and my force flex bags are at the ready.

Cleaned out the game cabinet. Packed 6 games to go to Children's Orchard, 3 to Salvation Army, and 2 in the trash. The ones that don't sell will be going straight to donation.

My husband is home for 24 hours 2 days into a 10 day trip, so my plan is to wake up early, work out, and declutter. If I can get 50 things out of here tomorrow, I will be a very happy woman.

(1) broken baby monitor that we are obviously never repairing
(2) bags of garbage from the backseat of the car... sadly mostly Starbucks coffee cups

Total: 25/2008

I feel like I'm getting so much support from this thread, just knowing that others out there are doing it too! So amazing how much stuff we all have, and are willing to part with.

Renae, I am enjoying your declutter blog! http://declutter2008.blogspot.com/
I've moved 9 times in 11 years... actually since we're going on 2 years here (some kind of record!) that would now be 9 times in 13 years. Each time I cleared out a room's worth of stuff. It feels great!

The last time we moved 3,000 miles with no moving van, so I got rid of 99% of what we owned. It's the most decluttered we've ever been. The stuff creeps in fast though, so here I am purging things again (as I started doing within 8 months of being here!).

The baby is not giving me much time at all... literally a minute here or there so it's been slow going!


Total so far today: 418/2008

(9) things sold on eBay and shipped!
(1) returned non-working gift
(1) towel
(1) hand towel
