Seeing your goals and progress posted gives me encouragement to jump in!
I'm in for the basement. We have a frightening number of bank boxes--148
to be exact, plus 3 tea cartons and lots of miscellaneous stuff--covering most of our basement. And worse, most of the boxes are filled with a jumble of stuff with no rhyme or reason.
How did we get here?!? Some boxes we packed in a hurry and stored when we moved overseas once, then we brought new stuff back, more boxes that we stored when we went back overseas, and 18 new boxes that came back with us this fall, plus 15 boxes of dh's papers and treasures that mil brought in Jan from her basement. Mil is coming for another visit in April and bringing the rest of dh's belongings (I haven't dared asked how much is left)
My goals for March:
1. 600 items out
2. get down to 50 bank boxes
This will mean being ruthless with my stuff and getting dh involved since most of the "treasures" are his. I'm going to try to bring a box per night up to him to sort through.
Progress so far:
-box of 10 VHS movies left out with "free" sign on it
-2 packs of flash cards and 1 mega madlibs given to my teacher neighbor
-a box of 26 books freecycled
-16 other items freecycled
-4 bags of junk trashed
-3 bags of recycling62/600
