I realize that there are still a few more weeks left in 2012, however, I plan on getting a little start on my 2013 things. I started over twice so I figure my 2012 goal was met a while ago. I have accumulated more things than I would like to have. So join me now if you would like or wait until 2013!
These things were donateed yesterday.
2.twin bed frame
11. bag of baby clothes
12. baby gym
13. boppy pillow
I'll be new to the challenge this year. Our house isn't too cluttered, but I do have a hard time getting what we don't need out of the house!
2. Soap (this was a quick in and out, MIL gave it to me but I hate perfume soap so re-gifted to my mom)
I have a bunch of things on Freecyle, and a bag to donate after the holidays, so hopefully I'll have a lot more to add to the list soon!
I've always wanted to join this thread, but I haven't thought about it/seen it until almost December, when there's no way I could get rid of that much stuff! So I will join now, and start probably after Christmas.
I'm going to join! Do y'all just count things you donate, or things you just throw away, too? Like old hole-y socks that I know nobody wants so I toss in the trash, would you count those?
I will be joining in too! Is anyone going to start the room by room monthly organization thread? I plan on re organizing our bedroom and donating a few boxes from there in January!
I was the one who actually started the 2012 in 2012 thread, but didn't quite get there...I lost count and motivation to finish it out around 700+ items and August...when I had a surprise pregnancy. I do plan on clearing out what I can from the house between now and March-ish when I will have to start taking it easier cause baby girl is due in April...but I bet I can jump back in come June-July. Unfortunately, even though my house is close to "done" as far as weeding things out, we have a messy garage and a bunch of stuff in the attic as well...so I think even taking a three month or so break in there I will still be able to make my goal for 2013!!
I starting doing this here on MDC in 2008! I made a chart this year to give away on my blog:
I am in. Do you list everything? This will be good for me to get rid of STUFF
I already started which may be cheating, lol.
1-30 old towels and rags I donated (I don't even know why I had so many. There's still more to be washed and donated, too!)
1978 to go.
Joining this year too! I only made it to roughly 750 in 2011, but decluttered 2028 items in 2012. But am raring to go again! I have already started sorting (major cleaning of the attic today although this stuff won't leave until a consignment sale in February. But I did pitch a holey pair of socks!
1 pair of socks trashed
I'm excited to meet the goal again this year-then maybe the house will seem much more livable!!
Ooh I like it. Could use some of this!
I started 2012 attempting this challenge but only made it as far as February. We really need to do this for 2013. We have our 6th child due the end of January (our last) and I will finally be able to donate/ pass down the baby clothes as the new little one grows.
We also have WAY TOO MANY TOYS in this house. I have boxes that I need to go through that have been in closets for almost 5yrs. That will be done before the new babe comes to make some room for him/ her.
I'll be starting January 1st.
Getting a bit of an early start, if that's alright.
OK last night/this morning-
3 stuffed animals
Last night I started, and got 3 garbage bags to trash, and three to donate.
I was happy to just get it done, amd was worried counting objects would get in the way.
I'm going to call it 30!
1-10 shirts, sweaters
10-20 toy pieces
24- 26 -jeans
Now to actually get the donations out of the house!
Cleaned out bathroom - 15!
Ok,s o a little warm up for me. I tossed a bottle of body lotion (last Xmas gift which smells awful) and put a few kids clothes which are too small in a bag for the donation bin. Going to call it 4/2013.
Oh and I resisted buying a tin of biscuits on sale - who needs that tin anyway.
I am in! I've got a bag ready to go, but forgot to count. I'll do that before bed and start a fresh bag in the morning!
Getting a bit of an early start, if that's alright.

running list for the day... turns out the schedule is much busier than anticipated, but ah well, will do what i can.
7 random lids to drink bottles no longer around
1 old kite my son forgot he made (so i didn't feel bad tossing it!)

Subbing and hoping to keep better track this year!
Started working right after I posted.
1-4: 4 boxes I had been using to store thing. Still going through the 'things' so I won't count those yet
5-11: Misc video game things into a box to pass along.
Count me in! I did the 2012 in 2012, but although i met my goal, over the year I'm sure we brought in way more stuff than went out. So this time I'm going to try to track what goes out as well as what comes in. We now have 5 people, (me, DH, three year old DS, and 5 month old twins) in a 400sf apt. so i have quite a bit of motivation to clear out this space.
I very much need this challenge with my growing family living in such a small space! I may proceed slowly since I have so much on my plate outside of this. I'm taking a passive approach of keeping a garbage bag in the laundry room and throwing stuff in it as I clean. When it's full, I cart it off to the good will. Now I'll just start keeping a tally of what all goes into that bag. It will be motivating to see this visual reminder of my progress.
20 items of cloths +
5 toys= 37 / 2013
not sure I will make it to 2013. But I will try
Started the New Year by tossing 64 Holiday Cards.
Tomorrow I'm planning on tackling the closet. I've been sick and lost alot of weight. If it doesn't fit, I'm NOT keeping it. We are still apt sharing but will be moving soon so there is NO NEED to move extra junk.
1-64 Holiday Cards
Subbing for the third year in a row....didn't reach my goal in 2012, but I aim to make a more concerted effort this year. It will be harder this time as most things I need to get rid of are 'good' things which are not to be binned but donated.
pile of old recipes
10 random things from drawer
7 old bras
Ooh! Subbing! I hope to complete this challenge this year
1 pair of boots that leaked
4 clothing items of H's(2 being donated)
1 cat carrier sold on Craigslist
2 shirts for the consignment shop
Off to an okay start today:
6 CFLs brought to Home Depot for recycling (they've been languishing on our counter for at least a few months now)
4 bottles of shaving cream that DH doesn't like- given to my dad
1 moldy bar of soap (I didn't know soap could mold )- trashed
Here I go!
23 clothing items
1 dryer ball
1 pair of undies
1 expired food item
