    OK, I now need to get started on this. Birthdays and most of the heavy duty holidays are over. Oldest dd's baby shower is done as is her best friends'. No more excuses. Really need to try for the 2012 in 2012; although, I will be happy to just get close. I will count the items I took to the Thrift Store about 10 days ago - 12 (how appropriate). The rest of the count starts now.

    ~WTG Libby!
    I'm dreading the the moving boxes. I just know I'm going to be so embarrassed with some of the things the movers pack up and wonder why I didn't throw that out before they came.
    Anyway, I've lost my tracking notebook in all the activity this week but I know I purged about 25 things from the bathroom closet including some full sized products. Potential for a big mess during a move so I'll just replace them.
    I also put 2 mugs in the out box.
    Then I went through some kids' clothes boxes and pulled out 29 clothing items, another set of sheets, 5 camping items and 4 pairs of shoes to sell/donate.
    =66 OUT
    In this week was a new light fixture for the hall.
    =1 IN~

    5 clothes
    6 gaming system
    tote bag
    shelving unit
    6 plastic boxes
    =12 OUT
    But I brought in 5 different plastic organizers. Least they were free. ~

    We bought a new storage building this past week. In the process we had to go through the car port and clean, purge, etc. so finding items to trash was easy. This led me to want to tackle other areas in the house! I have been getting rid of stuff like crazy!

    I also have another set of clothing at a consignment sale this weekend, so more to leave!!

    Wow, after reading all of these posts I am impressed. I'm going to start posting my stuff. We are preparing for baby #2 and need to get his/her room ready, plus our basement got some water in it, so this weekend we need to seriously start some decluttering. We've already got an appointment scheduled with Salvation Army to pick up a dining room set in April, so we should have plenty of time to find some extra items.
