Sunday
3 bags of trash
4 big items for trash (yep - the trash guys are just going to LOOOOOVE us again this week - my neighbor said she saw them two weeks ago giving up dirty looks. Maybe I should make them cookies or somehing!)

Today
We had someone haul away a bunch of brush from the back yard, a big rickety climbing wall that the previous owners left, an old treadmill, and a weight system that had to be rewired that we finally realized was never going to get rewired. Whew. It feels good to get that crap out of here!

I'm over 1000! 1076 to be exact.

We are having a garage sale on May 12th we now have 22 boxes filled with stuff we are selling plus furniture items and more. I also have nearly 350 books to sell from a business that I used to have that closed. We still have 8 shelves to go through in our garage.

YEAH! I'll be so glad when this is done. We downsized houses 3 times in 4 years and this is the first huge purging.

Added a few more items to the yard sale box.
Cleaned our cupboards out and returned a cake pan to MIL and dish to my mom. Got rid of a few more mismatched pieces of tupperware.
Tossed two broken tapes.

So.. 35-ish for today.

Added quite a few more things to the yard sale box today.
Threw out a bunch of socks with holes (don't need any more cleaning rags right now)
Trashed two books that were tattered and missing pages

My laundry room looks incredible right now
(now for the rest of the house .. )

5 clothing items sold to a vintage store, 10 more things to our church garage sale, 8 clothing items to our local crisis pregnancy center, and 4 more bags of paper recycling, all gone!

200/300 I'm sooooo praying to make my goal by Monday! Tomorrow I'm going to the local second-hand baby and maternity store, and I'm bringing in probably 50+ things to try to sell them, so hopefully that will work out very well!

Our garage sale is still 13 days away but DH worked all weekend while I was visiting his folks with our DS. He informed me our cars no longer fit in our garage because he boxed up so much stuff to be sold or donated.

He informed me we could sell 4 of our shelves in our garage since they are completely empty now

We are really making progress! I'm so excited. He also had neighbors stop by already and pre-sold about $120 worth of stuff.

Oops, I forgot to post over the weekend! I sold about 50 items to the second-hand store, so I made it to 250! I'm not at all disappointed, because I made my orignal goal of 150 in the first couple days of the month! I'm off to set my new goal for May!

Final score: 250/300!
