Re: 2,013 Items in 2013!

Starting fresh with the new year. We have now been in our house for a year. This is the year that I get rid of the junk and finish 'moving in'. If it is still in a box it can probably go! The Vietnam Veterans did a pick up today so here is the count for the last week:
Trash:
bath salts
2 prescriptions
box of boxes
bag of bags
makeup applicators
3 plastic containers
Head-On tube
drain screen
Skin Mist
brush
Packing peanuts
4 dead pens
cosmetics bag
foot powder
shampoo bottle
body powder
plastic stethoscope
5 things from fridge
4 boxes
bag of dog food
telephone book
stack of paper
sheet
mattress pad
tshirt
bottle of hair dye
Sub-total:39

Donated
new pull toy (gift)
scrunchie
xmas socks
2 snowmen mugs
2 NYE flutes
snowman doll
rattle
board book
wine stopper
baby plate
13 onsies
8 pairs of socks
13 sleepers
6 towels
7 baby hats
1 rash guard
random toy

Bandana Book
pacifier
2 pair jeans
2 sweaters

Sub total: 84

Returned gifts: 5

Not a bad start. I have two more batches of returns this week and am going to schedule another donation pick up for 2 weeks I think.

100 down. It's still sitting here, I need to donate or list it this weekend. We're supposed to actually get 3-5 inches of snow tonight here in VA so that may actually not happen.
Mostly kids clothes, shoes, a few books & toys & two of my jackets.
I also threw away a bag of stuff from our craft closet.
It's hard to start & the kids are almost always climbing all over me. :/ would love to have this done by April/May since we're moving this summer!

Reminder: If you've purged 94 things then you are right on track for the rest of the year. If you're behind, one good purge can catch you up.

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
Yesterday I pulled 19 clothing items from my closet and today I took them to goodwill! It's hard to get rid of things that fit but that I hate...but I did it!

Also today I sent off some prize packages from my blog. Usually the sponsors send the prizes, but for these two I just self-sponsored. These have been a long time coming and so I sent of 2 FuzziBunz, 2 Alva diapers, 2 extra inserts, and 5 bottles of old spice body wash. Glad to get those to the winners!

Total for 1/8: 30

Grand running total: 254

Re: 2,013 Items in 2013!

Why have I never checked into this thread before? Coolness!

I'm IN! Late start, but I bet i can get there. I've been selling a lot of items to come up with a year's tuition to a private K for my DD.

I purged a lot already this year, but I'll start with just this week.

Cleaned out the night stand. Who knew so much junk was in there?

5 books
1 Barney DVD
1 Pile misc paper (garbage)

Sold:
1 ice cream maker
56 prefolds
3 pocket diapers
1 piece fabric
1 kids coat
1 pair snow pants
1 car (finally!!)

Other purged items:
2 worn out coats
2 yucky chapsticks

Gave Away:
2 newborn pajamas
1 bag of newborn diapers
6 baby spoons

83 items painlessly purged, 1930 to go.

4 more things gone. 3 shirts and one plastic small organizer that didn't work for my need.

Slow slow slow since I've had family here the last week and 2 more coming next week. Everyone wants the warm SoCal air (they all live in Michigan). Hard to de-clutter with them here but my house is staying clean since I did my huge purge.
