<p>Don't worry if you haven't finished January, you've got a few more days. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>But if you did finish, or want to join us now - Welcome to the Feb 100/month declutter challenge. It's a short month - what can you get rid of?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>You can join these at any time and take a few months off when needed. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm starting the month off with a 7 item credit from January, so I've got </p>

<p>Optimistic that DD (the hoarder) has decided to donate her outgrown princess and dress-up wear to her teachers daughter. Just need to get her to pack up a bag. At least she is willing. </p>

<p>Thanks!  :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have a box ready to go with</p>
<p>2 Christmas presents that were duplicates</p>
<p>4 shirts from Christmas that were just not right for my family</p>
<p>3 random toys we don't need</p>
<p>4 pairs of pants</p>
<p> </p>
<p>DH and I have taken on a leadership role in a group we belong to. Unfortunately this has meant bringing 3 rubbermaids of stuff into our house. I have no clue where it will go. Some space will be opening up in our outbuilding but this is too delicate to go out there. I guess I'll have to do a grand shift before it is all settled. </p>

<p>am impressed with your 100 a month challenge... congratulations, you still have one day to complete it !</p>
<p>am lagging a bit on the 2012 in 2012 .... but have 4 rubbermaid boxes that I'm planning to tackle .... hopefully tomorrow afternoon (except it feels like a month that I've told myself the same thing & there's always something that comes up to eat up my time)</p>
