Anyone else not bother with selling and just donate everything?
Me. My biggest issue is getting things from my donate pile out the door. So, I have to donate or I'd just have piles forever.

Oh man I wish I would have counted how much stuff I tossed on new years eve! We went to the basement and purged. A huge recaro box full of junk, another small box and a trash bag just out of one room in the basement! I'd be willing to say there was over 70 good sized items.

I'm totally going to start counting and try to do this!!

Re: 2,013 Items in 2013!

I am so excited to start this process! Wheeeeee!!

And so inspired by everyone's posts
It's great to read what you all are doing, and how you're working through stuff ... love it.

So far I've gotten 269 items out of my home. I also have a huge pile of clothes (mine! I FINALLY managed to sort through my stash of clothes without having too much anxiety) to list on Freecycle; I'm hoping to get those posted, out of the house, and added to my count today or tomorrow.

Oh - and after being inspired by you all, I'll be hitting my utensil drawer soon too!

269 down
1744 left

Took a van load to goodwill last night.

Took:
Older pack n play
Reclined sleeper
5 big black garbage bag full of about: 10 board games, 30+ pieces of clothing, new 6 bottles of nail polish I won't use & body sprays.
Older bouncy seat

Threw away:
Boat load of papers
Broken toys
Any old cosmetics

Once upon a child took:
Rock n play sleeper
11 pieces of clothes


How do you count garbage bags full of stuff if you forgot to count it?

This is our problem as well. The thing is, DH drives right through a town with a church thrift store on his way to work everyday yet it takes an act of congress to get him to stop with a box or bag of stuff. His vehicle is broken down right now so he uses my car so I can't go during the day since he has my car. One night I will load my car till it's stuffed and he won't have a choice but to stop...hahaha!

I'm counting bags of trash as one. You could count it however you want though, obviously. I just don't have time to tally up trash.
