Okay, Last total was 346

Yesterday I cleaned out the fridge: 40 items
Sold 8 items on the TP: 8 itmes


New total would be 394

I have a bin of toys I've sorted thru, but not counted. I need to do that today, I do have one last day, right?!?! My plan it to get that one sacked up, and maybe do the girls clothes one last time, ancull a few more (how many times can you clean out the same thing??)

Well....I did not count each piece but I have:

5 black yard trash bags FULL of clothes for good will
At least 6 bags of trash (white tall kitchen size bags)

What should my item count be?

Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013.   If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!

262 Tossed or Recycled (I can't believe how many of those were just empty boxes!)

202 Donated or Freecycled

72 Relocated to and neatly organized on my designated "Spring Yard Sale Shelves" in the attic. (not technically out of the house, but I'm happy . . .)

Total: 536

(There's more in the basement, but I don't like to go down there. : Plus, I didn't finish going through the girls old clothes because I got a little, um, emotional. )

Last total was 399. Dumped/donated another 26 items out of the bottle/sippy cup bin. So final total was 425, not what I was hoping for but there's always Februrary.

OK- grand total 9966. Actually its much much higher but I only added in as of 2/3 at 3pm anyone who posted a GRAND total. So, if you want credit, get it in there- lets get over 10,000!!

Also, if you were not sure but went over 500 for sure and stopped counting (myself incl) I just added in 500 for your total.

Thanks to everyone who participated even if you only got rid of a dozen or so items, you helped me and all these mamas along! So post your total even if its under 500 to get us over the mark.

I now challenge you Feb declutters to beat 10,000!!!
