I've been mia for a few days, but have tossed out some things here and there. Things like old bottles of sunscreen that we have been keeping, a huge stuffed animal duck, books, etc. I'll count it as 7 items.

Then today I went through the cup cupboard and recycled old cups, lids, and straws from fairs and restaurants. I got rid of 10 items there. I also sorted through the downstairs toys again and have 5 more items to donate. I also created a box for baby toys to keep, just not keep out. So that is getting rid of a lot of clutter! I have lots of stuff to get rid of, and need to organize the stuff we're keeping!

Total 1/15: 22

Grand running total: 224

Re: 2,013 Items in 2013!

I accidentally broke a glass shelf in M's toy room today so I had no choice but to give it a thorough cleaning to be sure all the glass remnants were gone. Got rid of 68 things! My total is at 350 now!

318/2013

Pulled out some too small clothes from dd closet.
Instituting a 1-in-1-out rule.
Unfortunately, dd had a bay party on Sunday and came home with a whole bag full of small crap. I set it all aside where she doesn't see it, and if she does not ask for anything, I am tossing the whole bag.

Re: 2,013 Items in 2013!

262 is my rough number. I know I've gotten rid if some that weren't counted. Bonus for me. It's all gone out if the house now.

Update: DH thought the donation bag was just a bunch of stuff to put away, so he very sweetly cleaned up and put it all back away in our home! Now I'm back down to 219.

Oh my. What a sweet, misguided man. Good luck getting it all rounded up and out again.

Re: 2,013 Items in 2013!

Yesterday we eliminated 57 things. Which include pots and pans, cups, clothes, toys. Random stuff given to us by my inlaws.

So our total is now:
229/2013

More to go today. My husband also dropped the other stuff off at good will yesterday !
