Wow ColoradoMama... It'd be fun to see your posts all put together... you are really on a purging roll. It's fun seeing what others are getting rid of.
Today for me to the Good Will:

4 old school dictionaries
1 brass vase
1 pair never worn slippers
2 sets tongs
5 old forks
2 old sleeping bags of DS's from when they were small
1 green bottle

2 dead pillows to trash

Yep, but good scary huh? :
Is your aim to get to 2008/2008.
I'm grinning here imagining getting to 2007 things and just not being able to find any more to de-clutter at all. What would you choose if that happens?
You're inspiring me.

To go the the Auction Tender Centre
3 butter dishes
4 big glass jars
1 tortilla maker
1 cushion
12 (extra) dessert dishes
2 unused wine glasses
1 bread slicing gadget
1 tea bag squeezer ??!
6 old small coffee mugs
1 unused cream jug

To trash:
One mouldy pot mitt
One chipped mug
3 bent teaspoons

To give away:
3 hair thingies
1 never worn nightie
1 kids toy



I thought my house was uncluttered last week.. where does this stuff all come from?
Does stuff that wasn't clutter last week, just become clutter, or am I changing and seeing it as clutter more and more.
