I haven't updated here for a LONG time, but have been keeping general track somewhat as I continue to try and declutter. I don't have the momentum I've had in previous years, sadly, but want to keep trying. And then next year as we are hoping to move.
10 socks with holes-trashed
20 maternity items to friend
33 items to GW
18 items to friends
10 skeins of yarn destashed
33 movies donated to UNC hospital
12 skeins of yarn sold
7 diaper items sold
1 sock trashed
556 items to consignment sale
30 items trashed
2 pairs of torn clothes trashed
1 coat given to friend
10 items trashed
21 clothes to friend

764 + 404 = 1168 total for 2014 so far

Not great, but I have some more stuff set aside to donate, but I don't count it until it leaves the house, so hopefully in the next week or so.......

Giveaway for this week: 4 18x24x24 boxes crammed full of toys, trinkets, clothes and such. 4 more boxes ready to be closed and taken to giveaway on Monday. 6 loads of trash, including a bunkbed. Anticipating at least one more box of clothes and maybe half a box of toys. I'm pretty sure we made our numbers for this year. lol

Three more giant boxes for giveaway ready, plus another basket awaiting a box, and a wire shelf and a small bench-thing from the kids' room.

have totally stopped counting
& recently stopped sorting out as well,
our flat seems like a disaster are ....
AND we could possibly house 4 visiting relatives in the next few weeks

SO ... have decided that starting tomorrow Jan 1st, i'll try a new approach and will try to get rid of 6 things every day in 2015 (= 2190 ?)
if not, i'll write down how "late" i am every week & will try to catch up every Sunday ......
maybe that will work ?????

Here is the rest of the things I got rid of since my last update. Didn't get even close to my goal of 2014 this year. It's getting much harder after doing this for three years, but it was still a decent amount of clutter leaving this place and very little coming in, so I would call it success, after all.

Donated:

6 knitting books to friends
3 things to hubby's work
53 folders and crates
1 electric heater
2 organizers
8 items of clothing
1 game
1 doll
1 Santa hat
2 sweaters
1 knitting book
17 hangers
1 clock
1 XL bag
1 basket
4 plastic boxes

Trashed/Recycled:

67 bottles $3.55
Bag full of yarn tags after entering info into Ravelry database(count as 5 items)
2 shaver & stand

Sold:

2 Kombucha jars $18.75
4 sweaters $8

Grand Total for 2014: 729 + 500 (bottles)
Recovered $286.75

729 things gone & $286.75 recuperated in 2014
2852 things gone & $2098.11 recuperated in 2013
3445 things gone & $2201.34 recuperated in 2012

I managed to declutter 88 more items before the year ended, taking my total up to 1256, but falling way short of my goal. On to 2015!!!
