The numbers just really motivate me. My husband thinks it's super weird but he loves the impact it's had on our home! I keep a running tally in a "note" on my phone. When I'm going through stuff really quickly (like the bathroom tonight), I do hatch marks on a scratch sheet of paper. When I sell or donate, I list the biggest items.

Having a list is really helpful for donations, too-we itemize so it saves us a bit each year. Hopefully this year I've kept even better records.
