I'm joining in too!  I just took 50 baby items to consign (will donate those that don't sell).

 

I have a big pile of stuff by the front door but won't count it until it actually leaves the house.

Saturday at home, so did lots of clearing. Put out for recycling half of the plastic bags we'd been saving. Cleared extra counter space in kitchen (removed old school newsletters etc). Giving myself 6 items as it was all just little tots of junk.

Trying to collect together some inspiration for some eBay posting for some more numbers. Those of you that do that - how to you handle scheduling time to package and mail the stuff off?
