took the plunge ... called the local division for dumping large items and made an appointment for this morning for them to collect my junk.


So last night I put out 3 chairs, 2 stools, a printer, a carpet, a large bin, some flower pots and hangers, a stand alone clothes line thing (all broken in some way) as well as a large pan with lid & a juicer (last two item with a "free sign" taped on them, I know the large pan was taken up very shortly after I put it out


am going away in 10 days time & would really really like to keep on decluttering a bit every day until then so that all this recurring issue doesn't keep on worrying me for ever ... hopefully today I will tackle last year school items (have already got new back packs so it shouldn't be too bad to purge left overs from last year !).


maybe if I know that I'm going to write about it here every day, I'll finally manage to progress a bit more (apart from reading about decluttering on line and buying books on the subject !!!)

Oh, its way more fun to read about it and look at beautiful, uncluttered photos on simplicity blogs.  ;)


Congratulations, though, on your progress.  How exciting!

we're getting rid of a lot of stuff, too... I'm pulling tons of stuff for a yard sale/craiglist sale, and then everything is going to goodwill the dump.  It feels good!
