Ok, you ladies are motivating me, it's time to join this thread! We are moving sometime in the next 3 wks - 8 months (!!!) and probably to a place with waaaay less storage so have my work cut out for me. Especially with 3 kids under 5 & flu season! Counting as I purge is always more fun. smile.gif

had a go at some more paperwork that was collecting dust

+25

133 out of 2013

1880 to go !

 

... now that i know that if i can manage about 50 items per week, i should make it to 2013 .... it's not so bad.

i still cringe at the thought of writing the details of what i purge

but at least, i'm counting, and a step at a time, in the right direction .... (pity i cannot count the dust bunnies, have been searching for puzzle pieces under furniture and un-earthed quite a few things besides dust bunnies ...)

I think I have to stop counting because we just found an apartment and are moving in 13 days! We are probably going to get rid of 2013+ items in just that time & won't have time to count. Good luck all... Have fun decluttering!!

This weekend I've sold two big furniture items, a bunch of seed starting/ garden stuff & a rebounder (mini tramp) and gave away 4 cushions & some baby toys. We've filled some giant bags with recycling & garbage too. Woohoo!
Thanks for the good luck wishes!
