136.  pile of old Chinese sauces that just kept growing

137.  old seed packets

138.  bottle of hardened fabric softener bag.gif

 

No, I dont' think it ever really ends.  If you're not vigilant, junk can easily start to accumulate.  But, I do think that after a massive decluttering/organizing "event", it becomes much easier to prevent clutter from taking over again.

143 - HUGE bottle of calcium supplements that may have expired in 01. 

144 - Empty bubble container. 

145 - pile of boxes that I feel guilty counting because they came in during Christmas. I feel like I need to declutter stuff that was in place before the challenge started. 

 

And - several large garbage bags of toddler clothes have come INTO the house. But they are mostly sorted and stored, which is really good for me. This time I made a map of what was in the boxes in the back of the closet so I would know I have plenty until 18 months! 

 

Additionally - small box of baby items for the new baby across the street. Some of my favorites were really hard to part with but really, how much do I need for sentimental reasons?

OK - These are planned purges. They haven't left yet, but I'm counting them.

 

146 - Purple velour post-partum sweat suit that makes me feel fat and frumpy when I wear it.

147 - empty bubble bottle. 

148 - highball glass from "Kappa  Sigma Spring Formal 1989!"

149 - boppy cover

150 - 2 1010 calendars! 

 

THERE!!!
