Ok about 30 pieces of maternity clothing a pregnancy pillow and a shawl to donate. I threw away a deflated soccer ball. Oh and ended up with another bag of trash on the above post.

So 96 items and 3 bags of trash ... Still a long way to go.

Cleaned about half of the junk out of the garage, put some in storage for the garage sale, the rest in the dumpster. Lost count but was about 100 items. 387 down, 1626 to go!

Between throwing out old, unusable items and the stuff to donate, I think I cleared out about 150 items!!

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.

Total for 1/23: 175

Grand running total: 429
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!

Total for 1/28: 60

Grand running total: 489

So sad...I had a goal of 100 items today (misc small toys) while dd was supposed to be at MIL's but I only got 48 items before MIL brought her back home earlier than usual.

Grand total: 600

I have to say this is getting easier now that I have gotten past the first bout of nerves about starting this challenge. I used to feel so attached to things and now it's getting easier to look at an item and quickly assess whether it's a necessary item or not.

My family ha been here for 3 week and all left yesterday. I'm so ready to get back in he swing of things.

I did clean out my dresser. All holey socks are gone. Yay.

However I did manage to brainwash my mom and for the last week she calls me every night saying how tired she is and tells me everything she has gotten rid of. Yay! I'm so proud of her. She is a pack rat. Except I'm getting a few things she was going to toss. I'm gonna sell it and we will be splitting he profits.
