Today I decluttered 5 lawn and leaf size garbage bags and 1 large box of clothes! It feels so great to be free of the stuff. I sent the box of "business attire" to the Dress for Success charity for women, 1 bag of outgrown baby clothes to my sister, 1 bag if coats/jackets to the local coat drive, 1 bag of dh's excess shirts and 1 bag of misc. clothing to Goodwill. I was sooo glad to see those bags go out the door! I have been slowly decluttering for many months but today was so rewarding. It helped so much to think about the clothes going to good causes - anything I was unsure about, I just told myself that there was someone out there that needed these things more than us! Yay! It's addictive!

Hooray for you!!!: That's awesome. It is definitely a good feeling to get rid of stuff, especially if you send it somewhere that someone else can get some use out of it.

I'm always amazed at the bags of clutter that I can remove from one room -- and still have a waaaaay to go. :

That is great! It always feels so freeing to me each time I get rid of another bag of things we do not need.

Keep up the good work!

Makes one wonder how in the HECK we wind up with all of this stuff that we wind up not needing?

Good luck and have fun with it!
