Where are we supposed to be now to be on track?
Went through the downstairs books again and got rid of 3 more books, then tossed two travel brushes from the bathroom, and another random 10 items around the house. Also am recycling 5 batteries I've had in my backpack for three months (!). My big success was going through my coupon bag last night and recycling old coupon inserts, coupons, and all you coupon magazines. I got rid of about a foot tall pile of stuff and now my coupon bag and wallet are so clean and organized! I'm counting that as 20 items.

Total for 2/10: 38
Grand running total: 564

I also listed a bunch of new items and used diapers on craigslist and haven't gotten emails about any of them. Not even spam. I was so inspired by the pp who made $2000 and now I'm struggling to make $20! Lol.

Re: 2,013 Items in 2013!

Made excellent progress today! Went through all of the kids clothes, purged & sorted them into bins by size...then went through my maternity clothes and did the same!

Got rid of 10 more articles of clothing, a bouncy ball, a hamper, 4 freezer bins, a croquet set, & a bathroom organizer. Looking forward to my trip to the donation center today!

Where do all the junk toys come from? I swear this is the 3rd time in 2 months I've cleaned out the toys. 20 things gone and a whole bunch of trash.

I think my mom has a thing with what she calls throw away toys. Toys that you lose interest in a week later and you can throw them away. I swear I'm gonna ring her neck. Lol. At least it feels good purging them.

So I need to count from the last 2 weeks. I keep a running tab so donating is easier.

Off to go through clothes.
