That's good-- I started the other one, I don't know what happened to it-- messed up when I was posting. Oh well- glad you started one!

I'm excited-- I have 13 more to go before I hit 1000!

Yay!

I saw it, but I couldn't get the link to work. I just figured that in all the maintenance work MDC was doing, that it got screwed up. I thought it might be easier to just start another one!

Ok I THINK I know what this thread is about: As you throw out or get rid of you keep track for 2008. Is that right? If so I will start today as we have finally found the time to start the purge!!! :

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all

373 things from our closets in the master bedroom today, mostly fabric. I'm only counting things that I'm donating or selling.

Ok, so what things count? I am horribly unorganized & have tons of papers & other 'important' stuff lying around. Does that stuff count? I mean if I counted every paper I'd be at 2008 in a month or so I started with this thread in Feb I think, but then I got off trach because I felt like I was cheating with some of the stuff I was counting.

maciascl - I really think it's up to you what you count. I don't usually count each paper - more like a handful or so, but it's a personal challenge, so..... Helpful, eh?

1 stained shirt - trashed
1 torn shirt - trashed

up to 647/2008 I got to thinking about how close I'd be to our goal if I counted everything we'd trashed.

Yaay! Is this thread a follow on of the 2008 April Challenge thread? Guess it doesn't matter if it's not, because I'm so thrilled I'll post anywhere.
2 footstools to Aged Care home
3 bags clothes to goodwill
6 cartons of treasure for someone/junk to me sold at Tender Centre and given cheque
1 antique hatbox full of old treasures for best friend who has a mini-museum she loooves....old old books that aren't all that beautiful but I'd hung onto for sentiment only... kind of ugly pictures so my grandaughters wouldn't want them, but they are over 50 years old so my friend will treasure them.
1 bag of DS's outgrown clothes gone to lady who is glad for any pass-on clothes.

One big carton under spare bed that I am filling as I continue to de-clutter... I find I get braver every pass through of the house.
One big bag for clothes that I'm also getting braver about.
DH's shed is still in the wings waiting, but he's getting more and more inspired as he sees me getting rid of stuff.
