I decided that I hope I don't have 2012 things to get rid of. I hope I get rid of everything i possibly can and can't reach it because that means I'm really clear of the clutter.

Haven't posted in a few days, but I'm up to 333 gone so far. Today, I got rid of such valuable items as:
Half used box dryer sheets
Instructions to workout equipment no longer owned
Instructions to Xmas tree no longer owned
Empty box batteries.

Just sitting in a drawer that now actually has some empty space!

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

Well at least one of my things on ebay is going to sell!! The other one not yet. But thats okay. I went through dd's crayons, we threw out some and made new crayons with the rest of them. I'm going to try to go through the downstairs kitchen today. I have a couple of things I want to get rid of down there.

I did put about 10 more things also in the garage sale boxes.

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

Saturday, I went through our movies and found 8 of them to purge. Plus a few old baby blankets.

Yesterday, I found 6 more books that I don't want anymore.

I'm so happy I've been keeping up with this! I don't have a running total, because there are days that I just fill a garbage bag and don't count stuff, but I've definitely been at 6 or more items per day every day.

Oh... yesterday my DD (age 4) was going through her shoes. She made 3 piles: still fits, doesn't fit, and not sure. It was super cute. I guess she's been watching me.

I love using the DS forum on my phone cause I can post in real time that I just dropped off a big box of clothes at the drop off donation center.

I'll guesstimate about 60 items gone. If I'd gone through the box to count I'm sure the hoarder/repurposer in me would have pulled a bunch out.

So now I have 1924 left to Toss

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

Wasn't able to actually purge a lot of things today, unless you count each of the individual sea shells that I threw out (probably around 30), and I went through dd's hair stuff and got rid of those that had pieces missing or just wasn't looking the greatest (probably a bunch more). I also divided all the things, I put them into little bags for korkers/clips/large hair ties/small hair ties/headbands. It just looks so much more organized! She has a ton but the hair ties tend to break so I'm not purging those as they will probably make their own way out eventually. But it's so nice and relaxing to have them all organized and divided. No more looking for those small hair ties.

I did throw away 5 old bras that just didn't really fit or were wayyyy too worn. But I bought 3 more in their place so I'm really only down 2

Im at 1922 to go. Got rid of a huge bag of outgrown stuff today, also sorted out all of ds and dd's summery stuff that was still around. Keeping in a tote cause a lot will still fit then.

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

I'd like to join. I haven't been keeping track, so my count will be off (in a good way at least). Today I went through our dresser and a random cabinet in our kitchen.

Gone: 19
Left to go: 1993

I am so in. We need to declutter terribly. I did some today and put donations in the car, so tomorrow I'll do a rough count.
