Then, I arranged for the ThriftSmart truck to come to the neighborhood, and I donated 81 items plus at least 50 books. So, I'm counting 356 gone on Saturday. Add that in to the rest of April, and I've gotten rid of...

2175 in 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yay!!! That's incredible! Are you going to keep purging keeping track?

Sara - Hope you guys are feeling better soon! We all are getting over being sick and it is no fun when everyone in the house is sick.

Thanks for all the congrats, ladies! It feels so good to have all of that gone. Plus, I've been sick all week so I've done very little. Seems like a bad week for illness.

I'm definitely going to keep purging and counting. While the main spaces are much more pleasing and manageable, there is still work to be done in the master, closets and bathroom. I'm thinking my new goal for the year will be 5000. It would take a lot of donating and selling to get there but I think I can get close!

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

I've been MIA for weeks because I went into labor, then our schedules got all crazy adjusting to a new baby, then some postpartum complications. Ugh, at this point I'm lucky to get my dishes and laundry done hahaha. Sooo minus 138 since the last time I posted. Hopefully I can get back in the groove of things shortly!

1220 gone, 792 to go

Re: 2,012 items in 2012

I either haven't been paying attention or I have only gotten rid of ONE thing in over 2 weeks! Yikes.

Well count that one! - I'm at 480.
