i haven't been participating on the thread, but i have been purging away! i really can't keep track though. i was at 400-something, and i've gotten rid of bags and bags since then - mostly to the goodwill, some to other families. i'm not counting trash/recycling or borrowed items returned to their owners.
anyway, seriously, i think i'm half-way there but i no longer have the drive to try to keep count. is that horrible of me?
ooh! one other question. i've been decluttering our living areas and our wardrobes, because i've read that i should work in the areas that will make the biggest impact on our daily lives. that's cool, but i'm itching to deal with the boxes in our basement. i'm not done with our living areas, and haven't touched our bedroom other than clothes, but what do you think? can i dig into the basement?
