eta: 03/17 10 more items gone, my second set of measuring cups (why the heck do I have two of everything?!!) and a few more books. New total is 447.
Just got rid of 5 more items, so 452. the biggest one gone a large metal bed frame. I found out that my brother and SIL didn't have a bed frame and they just had a mattress and box frame on the floor so I gave them our extra one. The spare bedroom is pretty much cleared out.

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

Began tackling the office...

389 papers shredded and in the recycling
198 papers in the recycling
Counting each 10 papers as 1 = 58

1375- 58 = 1317 items left to go

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

35 more things today. Some toys, some office things, some makeup, and a few random things. I also purged our fridge (and cleaned/reorganized it), but I didn't count those items.

853 down, 1159 to go

I don't count things that should go out either.
But I did find a gal from church to take the Veggie Tales vhs tapes
and the library will take the rest
so 52 items out

1450+52 = 1502

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

Another 44 things purged today. 25 things came from the mini minimalist challenge, and had been in my "file this someday" pile. I don't normally count individual papers and manuals and things, but I am today because each of those were genuinely things that I thought I needed to save (not just a junk drawer of papers I needed to sort through).

I also got rid of some other things, like office supplies, some items from my knitting area, etc. You know those plastic storage things with the drawers? I cleared an entire one of those out! It is EMPTY. I consolidated my knitting stuff, and eliminated most of the office supplies that were in a different storage container. So then I transferred my knitting stuff to the smaller (nicer!) drawer organizer that the office stuff was in, and will put the remaining few office supplies (two binders, some resume paper, etc.) in our desk.

897 down, 1115 to go

I'm still hoping to purge a bit more today, but am very happy with what I got done.

Well today I hit the goal!!! I'm actually about 100 items over and still have more to purge as we finish packing.
Fantastic!!

Saw this yesterday, and plan on hopping in!! I got rid of 33 items today (well, once they are picked up from freecycle, that is!)
