Re: 2,012 items in 2012

It's been a busy couple of days around here - family funeral yesterday, and today it was nice out so we went to the park for several hours, then ran some errands. But I did get rid of 6-7 items both days. I can't remember everything from yesterday, but today I grabbed about 7 items from our kitchen utensil drawer that were duplicates or just old/junky. A few went in the trash, and a few went into my donate box.

Tomorrow, the Christmas tree is coming down. I am hoping to combine our 3 boxes of Christmas decor/lights down to 2 and purge some holiday decor stuff.

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

I haven't been counting stuff, just collecting and tossing in bags/boxes. When I finish my first sweep of the house I'll count before bringing it to the goodwill. I honestly think I'm about halfway there already---eek!

I love hearing what you all get rid of! Gives me ideas of things I don't need. I just thought I should start my list (counting) on my iPod. Going to make it now and start counting.

Jan 6-62 items (52 + 1O DVDs to return to friend). Books, CDs and DVDs to sell, plus some random donate stuff. We had a minor flood in our kitchen that turned out to be fairly damaging, so I'm trying to keep positive!

227 gone so far this year.

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

I've been slacking lately and I tried to get the motivation back by watching Clean House on Netflix but dd requested LeapFrog on it. My one really big goal for this weekend is that we have a 90 gallon aquarium in the basement I have the okay to get rid of it from dh but it needs to be cleaned up and emptied up so I can list it.

I was able to list a couple other things I took pictures of on craigslist. Still have so much to go though.

Oh and since the original people never showed for some of the things I listed on freecycle I moved onto the next person, hopefully those things will be gone soon they have been sitting on my porch for awhile now.

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

Well this stinks, I had a beautiful couch I was going to sell. Then I noticed a small stain so I washed the covers, when I got the covers out of the wash, the stain bleed all over and the covers shrunk so now it looks horrible and out to the garbage, no one is going to buy this thing now. So frustrated. It was so nice too and I could have gotten an easy $50-$75 for it.

Oh well at least one big item is gone and now I have the room again in my garage to start packing up all those boxes for the garage sale.
