I went grocery shopping today so I cleaned out the fridge and cupboards. I threw away a bunch but I did find two things to give to my mom. I'm not counting trash, so:

In some ways, that's a blessing!

I had a hectic day today on the go (carpooling since DH's truck is in the shop) so I didn't get rid of anything but DH took what I'd already purged to the thrift store this morning on his way to work. Tomorrow MIL has dd for 4 hrs so I will do as much as I can then. I may focus on toys while she's gone.

I counted the items that I have designated to be purged, and I am up to 100. However, none of the items are out of my house yet. They are in boxes in my basement, and I plan to call a local charity to schedule a pickup (so convenient when they come to my door to pick up donations).

When does everyone else count the items they are purging?

Week 1:
100/2013

Another thing I do (got the idea from a book) is take everything out, even the stuff I know I'll keep, and move them into another room. If it's out of place, I'm more likely to part with it.
Interesting tactic! I'll think about doing that with the kids toys and my clothes!

Today was the first day back of the semester, so purging took a backseat. All I've gotten done so far is recycling 4 paper bags that we've had in our kitchen cupboard for ages. Oh, and I guess a cardboard box from the fridge.

ETA: 6 magazines recycled

Total for 10/7: 11

Grand running total: 191/2013
