I'm going to hang with you ladies...
Joining cuz things seem to breed like crazy around here.
Joining too! I got rid of a lot of stuff this year, but there is so much left still and we might be moving in 2014 too... time to lighten the load!
Joining as I seem to do every year. Let's hope I'm more successful this year!
This is a great idea. I'm in! I think I'll make my own chart because I already get too many newsletters. I'm also trying to declutter my email inbox, LOL.
Joining! Even after moving early in the year and getting rid of a ton of stuff, it seems the clutter fairies have been back to see us.
I'm in and I have already started. Since we have a city wide garage sale weekend in April...all of my items are being stored in the garage until then but at least they are out of the house!
1 garbage bag kids clothing (50 items)
2 boxes kitchen items like plates, bowls cups etc. (40 items)
1 box toys (10 items)
4 winter coats
3 pairs baby shoes
1 box baby items (20 items)
1 pair crutches
1.. stupid kitchen gadget that broke 4 days after xmas
2. expired fridge item
3. expired fridge item
have just printed the 2014 chart ... can totally see now how the "gimmick effect" could very well work in my case and help me reach my goal this year ....
Subbing. Nothing to report yet.
Subbing. We always seem to grow new "things" quickly!

7. tossed 2013 wall calendar
8. tossed advent calendar, no matter how cute the Eric Carle thing is... we are NOT keeping it...served a purpose and recycled.
Prevention of clutter gets points this year as well.
My spot! :)
I've already gone through most of the books for giveaway, so that box is ready to go. I also have a bunch more. I was going to list them on amazon, but that is so slow that I think I'll just give them to the local goodwill.
I'm also already collecting clothes that the kids have outgrown and that the adults have either worn too much or we just don't wear. I have a box of books that I'm saving to send to my brother in prison - mainstream fiction, writing technique and inspirational types, so that will leave eventually (3-6 books every two months). We will also be getting rid of cheap toys as they break, I'm sure.
I'm not planning on getting money from my decluttering, but if it happens...
1) 2013 calendar
2) small cardboard box
Hey, it's a start!

10. black scratchy yarn
starting to build a pile of clothes to take a friend this week.
I've joined this thread every year for the past 3yrs and have never stuck with it. Well, I'm attempting year #4 We NEED to declutter. We now have 6 children and 2 adults in our home, 4 of the children are girls who will eventually be sharing 1 room.
This year my theme for the year is "CONTENTMENT". I'm striving for contentment in all aspects of my life. Decluttering my home to open up spaces, repair usable items while getting rid of unusable items, and generally "blooming where we're planting" all go hand in hand with fostering our family's contentment.
I start tomorrow.
finally started this morning
