Today I sorted through our catch-all box for stuff to file later. It was getting out of control! I recycled a ton of papers and selected just a few of my kids' drawings and crafts to save. (I took pictures of the others before I got rid of them.) So we got rid of a lot plus the area is clean now! I'm not going to count each paper I recycled or shredded, but I'll count the whole ordeal as 25 items.

I cleaned the kids' room and threw out or donated about 50 items. They still have so much, but I can already tell they're playing more with the toys that they kept. My son also surprised me by giving me 3 books to give away! (And these were ones I had chosen to keep, actually.) Good for him.

Also broke down 7 cardboard boxes that I've been saving for whatever reason and put them in the recycling.

I also did I quick sweep through my diapers and have a bunch to sell. But I'll add those in once they're actually gone!
