Re: 2,012 items in 2012

I haven't really been counting, but I've thrown away a few clothes that don't fit well/I don't like anymore, a lot of trash, some beauty products that I don't use or are well past the point of working (like sugar wax that has been reheated goodness knows how many times!!!) and I just listed our HUGE old TV on CL for free... It's a projection TV and took 4 grown men to haul it up the stairs, so we haven't been able to get rid of it... I'm hoping there will be someone nearby who can get a bunch of friends together and drag it out of here!!

Also have a queen size boxspring to get rid of, as well as a stereo system and then DD's room will be mostly junk free!!

Our room on the other hand, has a LONG way to go!

Yay! The TV is GONE!!!!

I think having DD's room nice and clear is going to be a great start to motivate us for the rest of the house!

Haha. Yeah pens in drawers are like socks in the drier. Always lost and forgotten.

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

Well I've been cleaning and purging because my garbage bag is full but no idea how many things in there. I found like 5 boxes that DH brought home when he left his old job. Getting rid of it all.

Not that I am planning on getting rid of any of this anytime soon but I also went through and wrote down everything in my gift closet. I plan on making a spreadsheet so that way when we are invited to a party or when I'm low on something I know what I have to pick up because I will have them categorized by boy/girl/baby.

Part of me purging is to just make myself more functional.

Also I do have another hit on something else I posted on craigslist.

My sister in law won an ipod shuffle 2gb that she gave me. Does anyone know how to tell what generation it is? I don't need it, so I was going to sell it. Should be a quick sell on craigslist or ebay.

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

Harry Potter 1 DVD
Harry Potter 2 DVD

Bag for blocks

PJ pants

PS3 setup bluray

6 candles
baby monitor

wall shelf

stickers

scarf

2 cocoa packets

broken hamper


Total items so far
: 48

Total remaining: 1964


I had doubles of the Harry Potter DVDs somehow. The candles made me sneeze. Pjs had a tear. Wall shelf got put up finally instead of siiting on the counter. Don't need a baby monitor in a studio apartment that it too small to ever be out of eyesight.

Threw away the broken junk and boxed the useful up and hauled it over to the goodwill across the street.
