Re: 2,012 items in 2012

I'm in as well.,, but I probably won't be counting every little thing, instead I'll just be posting what I got rid of. My house is overflowing with clutter and I'm sick of it. I told DH this year I'm getting rid of it.

I have already listed on freecycle:

1) Target bag full of misc craft supplies. (probably if I counted each individual set i'll be at something like 50+)
2) 2 pairs of shoes that don't fit
3) a bunch of pull ups (which why I was keeping I don't know, dd has been out of pull ups for over a year, I just put them aside and never got to getting rid of them )


Also I have a lady coming over today to look at 2 chairs I am selling on craigslist and I have a couch also listed. Here's hoping those go soon as well.

I also have a box of stuff I'm packing up for my garage sale to see if I can make a few dollars in the process as well.

I also need to get listing things on ebay, I have lots of collectibles just hanging out that I want gone.

The way I'm going I'll have 2012 things out of the house in no time. The lady came and got the 2 chairs, and now I also got rid of a lot of the expired and half used health and beauty things.

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

Well I have established aprox 500 items to go so far. Its only day 1.

Think I will reach the goal no problem. In all fairness they are not gone yet.

I do an initial sort anything too worn or broke gets recycled. Then I do my fsot on my forums, then ebay, then donate. Baby items I will do one run at the next baby flea market they have a good turn around, then donate.

I thought of offering ffs, but having so much and international shipping, it is just not a reaosnable option. For diaper items or baby items I always will, but the other stuff I think its just eaiser to donate locally.
