2,013 Items in 2013!
Hey everyone, I wanted to start a new thread for the new year. :)

Join in if you would like to keep track of how much clutter and excess stuff you purge from your home. Update whenever you want to, whether it be daily or after a big purge, or whenever you get the chance.

I participated last year and met (and then surpassed) the goal of getting rid of 2,012 things in 2012. I found it really motivating to keep track of the actual numbers, especially when I was feeling overwhelmed. One good purge can add 100+ items in just a few hours.

Anyone up for the challenge?

If you'd like to see the 2012 challenge, here's the link:

Even if you think you can't get that number, it will be fun to try. And it's fun to support each other, and encourage each other to reach our decluttering and simplifying goals in the new year.

This challenge will begin on January 1st. Good luck!

I didn't participate in 2012, but one of my resolutions is to get more organized this year. I'm in:)

I'd like to join. I started last year, but got side tracked once my FIL came to stay with us for a couple of months. I think I'll start today if that's ok. Dh is on Christmas break until the 2nd, so hopefully I'll make some progress.

I didn't participate via posting in 2012, but I more than surpassed the 2012 items!!! I had an entire garage full of good used items ( clothing, baby gear, household) and I had two moderately successful yard sales from it last summer...after packing away after the first sale I decided it was too much stuff to hold on to, hoping to sell. I donated ALL of it to Goodwill. I was surprised they accepted such a large donation. I generally am opposed to goodwill donations since they operate to profit, but I shop at that particular store often and they always price my items .97 rather than what the standard! So, to clothe me and my 3 kiddies, that's a huge help. :-)

Also, as of last week, I've already gotten 6 bags of donate and 2 bags of eBay items cleared out and a tremendous amount of trash!! Feels great! I'm in!

I think I'm in. We have so much junk and need to get organized. Maybe this will serve as some motivation.

Count me in! We are moving from a 3 bedroom house to a 2 bedroom apartment in late January and I need the motivation to keep purging. I'm going to start this month, hope that isn't cheating!

I'm in! We are moving very soon too and I'm purging while I pack. Ive already taken 2 van loads to goodwill. I have about 6 garbage bags and bigger items in the garage ready to go and 3 1/2 garbage bags on my love seat. Holy cow! I'm still looking for more to get rid of.
