I had a great day of purging!!

I got rid of a living room suit (trashed) and replaced with a bargain leather set from goodwill!!

Then I cleaned out my boys (shared) room, and purged a large little tikes tool bench and sat it outside...less than 2hrs later someone knocked at my door wanting it for their son! So much better than trashing it!

Tomorrow is clothing day!

I am joining this challenge as well, and hope to really make a good dent in the stuff we have here. Our home just feels so cramped and cluttered at times.

So far this week I have purged 30 Christmas items and 25 bathroom items:

Lol I thought it was going to be like pulling teeth to get dh on board with this, but he came home and immediately got started. I'm still reeling from the shock!

Totally joining this year! I told my whole family that getting rid of 2013 things this year was my new year's resolution!

Our house is always messy, in part because we just have too much stuff and nowhere to put it. I hope if I get rid of a bunch of stuff, it will be easier to clean.

Soooooo, we just got home from vacation, but while I was there I prevented junk from coming home with us. For example, plastic cups from new year's eve, toys from kids meals, etc. I'm totally counting those as being part of my 2013. And now that we're home, I can really get started.

Re: 2,013 Items in 2013!

So, I counted while bagging everything up. Then I went through DD's room and deep cleaned and purged. Total count as of today: 404!
I went well over 2,012 items last year and while my house feels minimal, I'd like to really push myself for 2013, so my goal is to double my amount.

Current Count: 404/4026

Went through some old clothes that were in storage and found 53 items to donate/sell. My new total is 327.

ETA: Just found 7 maternity shirts to throw in the donate pile. My new total is 334.
