My big success was going through my coupon bag last night and recycling old coupon inserts, coupons, and all you coupon magazines. I got rid of about a foot tall pile of stuff and now my coupon bag and wallet are so clean and organized! I'm counting that as 20 items.

Total for 2/10: 38
Grand running total: 564

I also listed a bunch of new items and used diapers on craigslist and haven't gotten emails about any of them. Not even spam. I was so inspired by the pp who made $2000 and now I'm struggling to make $20! Lol.


It's been a while since I posted! I've been slow on purging and we went on vacation. But I've been getting rid of a few things here and there:
3 magazines recycled
2 scarves
1 teddy bear
1 wooden stop sign toy
1 book
1 broken toy trashed

Total for 2/26: 9

Grand running total: 573

Re: 2,013 Items in 2013!

Well I tried joining this thread but had SO much stuff to purge that I lost count. I have cleaned and decluttered the living room, hallway closet, foyer table, linen closet, dd's room, ds1 and upcoming ds2' room, started on the attic, kitchen and my room a little. Hopeful I can revamp this whole house before ds2 arrives in April.....hopefully he'll stay in there. I've been doing so much that I started having contractions regularly and was ORDERED to slow down. It's killing me not to purge quicker!!! Wish me good cleaning vibes!

Thats what I do. There is a dropoff place by my grocery store. Lately I have been hitting it once a week.

I have a trash bag in my closet to collect the castoffs and when it is full I drop it off. I hate that there is a trash bag in the closet but oh well.

Today I shucked a piece of ugly costume jewelry and a shirt....it fit technically, but it just screamed LOOK AT MY BOOBS! Maybe someone else will have better uck with it??

I'm so excited. I Reid the bathroom and for rid of the trash can. Oh my word does it look amazing! They redid the tub and tiles. I put in a new shower rod, bath mat and painted the shelves (and the entire bathroom). I got rid of so much the medicine cabinet only has our toothbrushes and toothpaste. Amazing feeling. I had to share it somewhere. Makes me excited to go the rest of the house so fresh and clean and uncluttered!

It is for sure my motivation this week.

You sound like me. I went crazy when I was pregnant. I purged & cleaned like a mad woman. I remember being 37 weeks down on the floor with a bleach pen, electric toothbrush & other cleansers trying to clean the grout on my tile floor. My husband was so mad at me. Luckily I didn't have any contractions from it. SLOW DOWN Mama!

Re: 2,013 Items in 2013!

Okay, I haven't updated in a long time, but I've just been keeping a running tally of things I've purged. Mostly it's just stuff from the mini minimalist challenges, and other random stuff I've tossed. I just added them up, and I can add 264 more things to my total.

529 down, 1484 to go

After tomorrow (the last day of February), you are on track if you have purged about 325 items.
