2 more old cat toys

7 old magazines and catalogs
2 more bottles I was saving for bulk purchases (I have plenty!)
1 large grocery bag of papers (burned some)

1 George foreman grill
1 baby swing
3 purses I wasn't using

Gave away:
1 pair DD's old pants

working on a big box to donate but it isn't out of the house yet! I also just found another big box of magazines and paperwork so that should be easy to toss.....just have to sort it! I've been slacking a little and I'm ready to get moving on this!

19 to add to previous total of 101 - new total 120/2008

Okay, I'll jump in! (On the last, extra day of February! )

January was slow, probably about 50 items to Goodwill and 50 to trash/recycling.

These last couple of weeks I've done:
90 books to the library (donations, not returns!)
60 items to Goodwill (clothes, toys, bedding - these are actually going today)
2 HUGE contractor bags of trash - I became ruthless <evil laugh>, so about 100 items there
Returns to various stores/mail-order that I've been meaning to get around to: about 10 items
Home/office papers purge: so far 2 FULL paper bags of recycling and one of shredding, could easily be about 1000 items (loose papers + magazines/catalogs), since those bags of papers were HEAVY. I'll count as 100.
Let go of collections of toilet paper tubes and corks (both of the people I was saving these for have moved away or no longer need them): 2 bags
Threw away 3 pairs of horrid old shoes

There's more, but I can't remember all of it right now.
