Cleaned a bunch out if the kitchen today...up to 455. I'll be glad when I start seeing some real progress. It's awful to have this much junk!

Between the books we purged last night (52), and a bunch of stuff we went through today, we purged 116 things. Listed 41 on a local shop and swap page, have a few more to do tomorrow. Purging during the week will be slower going, unfortunately.

ETA: found more junk and trashed 9 items
ETA: threw out 2 tea samples. We don't even drink tea!
ETA: threw out 2 sponges and 2 old toothbrushes

Does anyone else find that it's easy to do an initial purge, but then you have to come back a little later and do another one?

I always do this. I skim the room and go back later for a deeper purge. I also go back every few months and do another big purge.
Another thing I do (got the idea from a book) is take everything out, even the stuff I know I'll keep, and move them into another room. If it's out of place, I'm more likely to part with it.

I am up to 77 gone. Today I am trying to get caught up on laundry. I've been so sick this first trimester that it's been at least a month since I've done anything besides "emergency" laundry. In that time, I've popped out and DS has had a growth spurt-so a bunch of stuff is getting washed just to get sold or donated!

I also need to pull my maternity clothes out and start switching over my closet. Since it took me almost 2 years to lose the baby weight with my first (I hold onto weight while nursing), any prepregnacy clothes will likely be in storage until 2015! I'm only going to keep a very few, select items and consign or donate the rest. Tomorrow DS has MDO, so hopefully I'll feel well enough to begin that project.
