1 cracked snow globe

A bunch of empty boxes and recycling (that I won't count, but feel motivated when mentioning)

24 expired pantry items and 2 unexpired pantry items. This category makes me feel very guilty :-/ The 2 unexpired items will be passed on to my neighbor because I know she'll use it. 

About 20 tea bags filled with tea that simply tastes awful. I'll count this as 1 item. 

1 egg cup (broken)

1 cup (broken)

1 hanging decoration

A small handful of old, used, teeth imprinted straws (seriously.. where does this s^%t come from??). Again, 1 item.

I'm 80/2014. Today there was a get together to exchange/donate stuff we dont use between close friends and i pretty much donated all my stuff that's been lingering in the back of my car. Sometimes i forget about the sacks full of stuff and they will stay in the car forever... I'm planning to declutter some winter clothings and accessories such as gloves and scarves. Although i live in Brazil mine is a chilly city and there's usually snow in the winter,so summer is a good time to declutter.

Brazilian; married to dp; currently on the adoption list (fingers crossed!); interested in minimalism and simple living; rusty english.

If we did the same amount every day ago year we would need to be at 66 today. I know for me I will do nothing for weeks then do lots.

Yes it is.  It would be interesting to keep track of how many lost objects were found due to our efforts.  I know I have found at least one.

That is 7.45%. My goal is to be at 10% by the end of the month.

 

I gave away my breast pump and a bunch of toys the kids are not using any more.

about 20 pieces of paper. dd is the artiste and we have drawn-on paper everywhere. i may stick with counting them each just to provide more incentive. i'll see how it goes.
