it is definately doable.
get on a roll
and enjoy it!!

This was a huge undertaking and I ended up purging 163 items including 4 bridesmaid dresses, 1 coat, a dozen bras, 2 dozen underwear, a dozen pairs of pants/jeans/skirts, and piles of shirts/tanks etc. I just have to go through my shoes and then that area is done for now. I think there will be a secondary round of purging in about a month as my weight settles and the sting of removing all those clothes wears off.

163+175=338 good nights work!

Nice going!!

Holy cow, you've been busy! A couple days ago you were "failing" and now you've way more than caught up! You've surpassed me by quite a bit, haha.

my resolution this year is to simplify.

My goal was not to slack off
but I managed to do just that :giggle1:

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

I'm still here, not really purging though at the moment. The house is a wreck because of renovations so it's too difficult to go through things. I have no upstairs kitchen, diningroom, livingroom or hallway. So everything that was in those rooms are in my other 3 bedrooms so everything is very very tight at the moment. Seriously can't wait until this is over.

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

Donated about 60 articles of clothing and took about 10 items to consignment and gave 7 peices of kids clothes away to a friend. And I mailed my sister a large frb of clothes, books and some prunes that I know she'll like and just would have gone bad here and a splat mat.

oh, and puppy helped me purge the spare phone charger... I realized I really didn't need it once he gnawed the head off.
