I'm in!

I exceeded my goal in January and I want to keep the momentum going this month

I think I'll set my goal at 200 items.

I'm due at the end of this month/early March, so I'm hoping to get most of the de-cluttering done early, so I can relax near the end!

Today, I tossed a worn out pair of slippers and plan to attack the guest room closet later today.

me too, though I am running out of things to declutter. I do have a closet I could go through today. I'll aim for 100 things this month.

I'm in! I'm going to aim low though for 50 items... I've been doing so well I don't have much left go pitch!

Yeah, I'm new and a chronic "re-user" so I'm setting the goal for 50 items, too. Better to exceed a low target than miss a high one (how's that for pessimism? I'm REALLY sick right now--so I can't even believe I'm thinking this is possible)

I'm in. I have pretty much decluttered every room except the office. I WILL get to that room before the end of the month.

I'm in! I've already tackled the canning closet and tossed out 32 items. I'm aiming to declutter 300 items this month.

I would like to join in, please. Just last week (I know this counts for January) I went through my boys clothing and a little bit of mine. I bagged up SEVEN trash bags full of nice, good clothing for my mother to give to a family that could use it on her bus route (she asked in advance). It felt good to give the clothes to a family that can use them (I am pretty poor myself, and love hand-me-downs). I also had 2 more trash bags that I threw out because of tears, stains or just worn out.

I am going to try to get rid of 50 more items for the month of February.

Hmm... seeing as I have about 1000 items ready to go out the door tomorrow, maybe I should shoot for 1300? I'm serious... maybe more than 1000 items. Clothes, fabric, ribbons, lace, yarn, dishes, towels, placemats, knick knacks, toys, kitchen gadgets, baby stuff.... sooo much!

OOh, I'm in. I think I will aim for 350 items decluttered this month. Today I put 6 shirts and a pair of pants in the donate box so...
7/350.

I'm in!!!

I need to do MAJOR work on this place. My goal for February is 500 items OUT OUT OUT!

What an interesting concept - My DH is a packrat, so it's difficult to get anything out of the house without him rescuing it (or looking for it later! Who would have thought he needed a specific size/color scrap of leather leftover from his HS leathercrafting days? Not I!). I did manage to toss about 30 wire hangers this morning, though.

Best of luck to all of you!

It seems my momentum is fading fast :

Anyway, I have a few things posted and hopefully they will be gone by week's end. I did manage to catch up on my magazine pile this weekend -- all 9 are now gone.

Ooh, I'm in. We've been on a huge decluttering binge since early December. Its time to hit the study and especially my desk again. Its definitely my junk collector area.
