You're right, I have only used it 2 times in 8 1/2 years. I'm going to go and find a box before I change my mind. Thanks!!

I purged over a dozen bottles!! I zip locked some up for a friend, and the rest (not pictured) are off to the thrift store.
So in the last week:
4 4oz dr browns
1 8oz dr browns
4 Playtex nurser bottles
Pumping adaptor/milk storage set for Playtex dropins
4 cheap bottles

Remaining:
2 Playtex drop-in bottles
2 glass dr browns
6ish aplastic dr browns
4 Madela bottles (almost exclusively for milk storage)

...not bad for twins!

You know I actually do. I guess they've been hanging over me. Every time I do a purge through the kitchen I'd look at them, touch them and then put them back.

Now to just get motivated. I'm working in getting a dresser refinished for DD and then I think I'll head back to the clothes department.

Re: Mini Minimalist Challenge: 1/28-2/1

Monday 1.28.13: 7 DVDs gone!
Tuesday 1.29.13: Lots of bottles and sippy cups. We also decided we were going to pack away a TON of other dishes to make it less tempting to go without washing right after we use them. I hate a messy sink!
Wednesday 1.30.13: Purge 5 items from your pet supplies. Can't happen. The dog is the simple one in the family!
Thursday 1.31.13: Purge 5 books. Got rid of 10 of DD's books. And I got rid of three of my own that I have already read and have no need for! Passed one on to a friend and the other two into yardsale!

Friday 2.1.13: Purge 5 items from your photos or scrapbooking supplies.
SO HARD TO DO! But I did it. I went through and took out all of the scrapbook paper that I didn't have a plan for or LOVE LOVE LOVE and did the same with cardstock. If it didn't match papers that I have plans for it went bye bye. I probably got rid of 100+ items. I needed this though. I hadn't scrapbooked in awhile because I was to overwhelmed with everything!
