I've got 2 big blue bins overflowing with stuff I want to contribute to my church's annual yard sale. But I can't take it to the church building until June. Not sure if I should hold on to it for 2 more months or just drop it off at Goodwill....

My mom and grandma are the same way. Sometimes it's very helpful and it's things we need or save us money. Like 2 more jars of peanut butter.. lol. No joke she sends things like jars of peanut butter in packages across the state. The packages just arrive and I just have to sort through and make a bag for the thrift store. It can a little frustrating because it's an extra chore or added clutter. And they are just trying to be nice or helpful so I don't really think I should say anything. They would be offended, this is their way of showing love. I don't know if its the same for your mom, but maybe. She might be trying to take care of you, or maybe she is just trying to declutter too. lol. I know how frustrating it is though. At the end of the month I am going to help my grandma move, I am pretty sure I will come back with a car load if I am not careful. I am getting better at excuses though! Sometimes people don't ask though, they just mail it.

 

2 bikes!

fan

2 pair sunglasses

3 shirts

2 hats

3 pair gloves

4 tank tops

4 boxers

rice spoon

toilet brush

bottle of bubbles

blender

electric hand mixer

-bean bag chair - looks like its staying here and not leaving :(

-dress and pair of PJs my daughter accidentally saw in the thrift store bag in the back of the car. I guess they are staying for now.

-fire truck hat

we own 546 less things than we did on Jan 1st.

$225

Oh, its definitely my mom's way of showing she loves us. Sometimes I wish she'd just say it and act like it, though, rather than give me stuff. A lot of stuff I am really grateful for, esp all the clothes she buys for *me*. She's bought almost all of the items in my wardrobe and I'm very thankful for them. I just don't need anymore and I know they are getting tight on cash (my dad has had three major surgeries in the past 9 months) and everything she buys is new--normally on a really good sale but still it adds up. But she is one of those who needs material items to feel happy and she thinks everyone else is that way, too. I'm not. Thanks for reminding me of her perspective, though! smile.gif

YARD SALE TODAY!!

Made about $80, everything was basically a dollar!  I'm going to have another sale next week, I didn't get the furniture over there plus I'm not officially moving until the first week in May.  I also took 2 bags of clothes that I managed to 'shrink myself out of' to goodwill.  (yes loosing weight too)

So counting 150 items (tons of hotweels, notebooks, office supplies  etc) and adding $80- GO ME!

 

This is still VERY overwhelming because I came home to a filled apartment but I know progress is being made.

i think it was one of those lacy stocking holders that go around your waist... lol i thought it looked like a bra (granted, a very AA cup bra), but the straps had a ball and hook at the ends instead of attaching as one strap (like a bra would have)!

Two whole weeks since I posted!!  I have catching up to do on how everyone's decluttering has been going but wanted to post quickly.  27 more items gone this evening.  An umbrella stroller and 5 figurines to donation and 21 books to take to consignment.  The plan this weekend is to take a trip to the dump and a trip to the Goodwill to get rid of a ton of stuff.  If I have time I'll head to the two consignment stores that took my clothing and see if any items have sold.  Fingers crossed!

Ok, DH and I are back on board!!  Tonight we've gone through more stuff that DH had brought back from storage.  DH got rid of 50 drawings from his art portfolio, I got rid of some fabric scraps, 3 cardboard boxes, another 15 books, 6 formal dresses (one I wore as DHs date to his highschool grad, one I wore on our first date, one was a bridesmaids dress from our wedding...), random papers, 25 other random items DH chucked, a plastic bag holder thing to recycle, a big candle (from our wedding 12 years ago!!!) And I listed a kids travel bed on kijiji. I think that's it (for tonight!)  104 more items. Tomorrow: more decluttering, a trip to the dump and a trip to goodwill.

Had the yardsale, made $80, so probably sold 80 items in keeping with the theory that each item was a buck.

 

I am in total panic mode as there are 2 1/2 weeks until we move.

I shipped off 2 boxes on Saturday to our new destination.  I need to kick up my speed today.  Continuing to eat from the pantry and may do a food donation this week as well.   Reality is hitting and panic is increasing!

Today the baby fell asleep in the car on the way back from church, so when we got home I opened all the doors and just let her sleep while I excavated the trunk. I got rid of 115 items! There have been multiple times throughout the years when I needed to clear the back seat fast so just stuffed all the junk in the trunk. So this dealt with a ton of crap that should have been gone long, long ago. It was a pretty even mix of stuff that should have been thrown out in the first place (used tissues, food wrappers, etc) and stuff that may have made sense to save originally but is no longer useful (receipts and bills that are several years old, paperwork related to getting into the graduate program I've since graduated from, programs for events that took place long ago, etc). Also got rid of an ice scraper we didn't like and some old jewel cases (haven't listened to burned CDs in years). There is still some stuff in the passenger compartment that needs to go, but the trunk looks great now!

 

New total: 932/2012

 

ETA: I cleared out 3 bags full of plastic grocery bags, and talked hubby into parting with 2 bags from the Apple Store, which I am counting separately as he has been hoarding and not using those for a while. ("They're good bags!" Yeah, but what are you going to use them for? :P ) Now up to 937/2012.
