Well, I did half of #1 and most of #3. #3 was a biggie, so I'm happy.

1. Make at least one trip to Goodwill with a FULL trunk
2. Sort through DS's closet (did his dresser yesterday! )
3. Have AT LEAST 10 garbage bags ready by Friday's trash day (basement junk)

I am wanting so desperately to move out of this apartment, and can't do it with all of this baggage. My ultimate goal is to have nothing except my washer and dryer in the basement so that I can really organize what I have up on the two floors of my apartment and get it ready to move before I start trying to figure out where I want to go.

1. Take picture, post a listing of my electric guitar and amp to sell. Come on! I don't shred like I used to. As much as I'd like to be a SAHM rock star, I just rock anyway, and now I can rock even harder with some benjamins keeping the beat in my pocket

2. Take care of a few bills I have to pay and then FILE the paperwork or shred it immediately.

3. Get 10 items to give away and then GIVE THEM AWAY. Out of the house!! Get thee gone, prepregnancy dresses that I will never wear again!

I'm in - three things seems very manageable.

1. Take a picture of our box spring & post ad on craigslist. We do not need to hang on to this for another year "just in case" my MIL comes to live with us. Right now it's leaning against the wall in the boys' room!

2. Bring all the picture frames in the hall closet to the thrift store. Face up to the fact that I just don't like them and I'm never going to put a picture in them!

3. Organize the bookshelf in the living room.

By Friday I'm going to:

1. Empty out under the stairs closet and sort out junk from things we need to keep.
2. Empty out DH's closet and do the same.
3. Organize my sewing supplies.
