No way Mama, you are doing fabulous! Although I am counting things I throw away. Broken toys, etc.

Well today I hit the goal!!! I'm actually about 100 items over and still have more to purge as we finish packing. The thing that finally put me over the edge was purging my craft/sewing stuff by about 50%. That was really hard because I love to sew but I kept only the things I could realistically see myself using for projects in the next 6 months and everything else is gone!
Great job, that's wonderful!

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

68 more things since my last update. Mostly things from the mini minimalist challenge, and some random things... lots of stuff from my car and our office!

I spent about an hour on our office this afternoon (the room that's really been hanging over my head lately). I went through one of our filing drawers and cleared out some unnecessary paperwork, plus went through a bag and a box of things that needed to be filed or put away (or tossed). It still looks like a cyclone went through there, but I feel like I took a huge step in the right direction. I would go in there and look around and just feel helpless, because I didn't know where or how to start. But I got a good grasp on the direction I want to take. I'm hoping to get another hour or two in there this weekend. I will post before and afters when I'm all done.

713 down, 1299 to go
