I know right.. the ones from when i was 15 wouldn't even fit half of my booty now.


I went through my coupons and threw away 60 or so advertisements. I'll only count them as 25 though.

572 currently. Way behind but even if I don't reach 2012 I'll still feel like I accomplished something.

A few more gone. I have a big pile of stuff to get rid of as well but I haven't counted it yet. It's crazy that the counting sometimes makes the whole process harder than just scooping it up and tossing it! LOL

759 + 24 = 783

I hit 2012 in April, and I was pondering my next goal. 4024 is a great idea! It will be hard because I've done all the "easy" stuff, but there is definitely still stuff lurking in cabinets and closets. Plus the dreaded under-the-stairs storage which is completely full (even after an initial quick purge), but I'm afraid to tackle it because our house is on the market and I don't want to get a showing call when I've pulled out five boxes of memories!

Adding one more item...finally got rid of the big dresser/changing table that has been sitting in our living room! I've had it on craiglist for a while and just re-listed it and it sold in less than 24 hours! I'[m thrilled. While it is only one item, it has made a huge difference in how the room feels!

New total: 784

Went through my coupons again and got rid of 3 grocery bags full. I also sold one of my books on amazon so I'll say 31 items gone. 603 total gone. I really want to go and clean out the garage; I could easily get 500 more items.

I love those items that make such a big difference. Way to go!

My house is such a wreck that its overwhelming and it occurred to me this week that I might want to grab a box at a time and keep it in the back of my vehicle. Thought being that it would be easier to go through one at a time, without distractions, and outside of an overwhelming atmosphere - and the stuff I decided to get rid of would already be sort of 1/2 way gone. Might work for your situation. It would give you something to do when you are waiting out the showings also.

I know I am starting super late in the year, but I'm curious to see if we could reach this! We are having baby number 5 in December, and really need to downsize before then! We have a small house that already feels crowded, so maybe working towards this goal will help clear things out a bit!
