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.

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. :shake:
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.
In this week was a new light fixture for the hall. ;)

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!

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.

Not sure how to add construction debris - we took out 4 walls incl drywall, studs, carpeting, underpadding, sliding bif-old doors & sliding glass mirror doors. Plus the leftover construction debris that the previous owner (or his contractor) tried to hide between the walls - approx 4 lg garbage bags. How many items would that count as?!
~Bed actually arrived with slight damage so they're bringing out a replacement tomorrow. It feels like a Beautyrest though. I may get a topper for it as we're used to the older matress that had too much give. I bought a firm plush but it may be a bit too firm. Easily fixed!
Anyway this week I've been busy!
3 pr socks
2 pr shoes
3 packs playing cards
Although they're aren't technically in my house yet, I will be getting some of my mom's things before we move: 2 end tables, hutch, high chair, dehydrator, canning jars and a pitcher. = I'll say around 50 IN since I don't know how many jars I'll take.~
Just a suggestion - take ALL canning jars. . . especially if free.
I have donated 12 items total in the last two weeks and took another 12 items to the Thrift Store on Wednesday. This is not a lot but I'm going with the old adage 'it's better than nothing.'
~Tossed 5 plastic containers, filled 5 grocery bags with clothes and 2 bags with shed stuff to trash/sell. Gave away 2 large baby items as well. I'm counting it all as 107 OUT.
DS got a couple of track expansion packs that I'm going to round to 40 pieces in. I was also gifted a tea set and teapot, another 9 in.=49 IN.~
last night we sat and went through our paperwork and shredded and recycled so many papers. i feel so light today! we still have more to go through tonight....and more to shred!!!
i'm counting last night's foray as 100 things.
SO 835 things gone! 1177 things to go!!!!
~WTG Dinah! Paperwork is such a battle for me. I hate dealing with it. :shake:
I worked in the shed yesterday and pulled out a ton of stuff(tools, building materials, sports equipment) to send to the yard sale and to trash. I'm counting it all as 100 OUT just to simplify things but it was a lot more.~
So far I've thrown out 10 pairs of socks/underwear from my stuff and 2 pairs of DS's jammies that had huge holes in the feet.
~More outside stuff gone: building materials, fencing, bit of this and that that collected around the shed. Counting it all as 25.~
well today we've been busy beavers. we've been shredding, throwing things out, putting things in recycling, and dh took a box of stuff to value village!
shredding - 20
to the garbage - 30 (tons of our sons little silly mcdonald toys and broken toys)
to the recycling - 10 (amongst other things go rid of old phonebooks)
to value village - 30
altogether about 90 things...
so....975 things gone....1037 things to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've been so busy that I keep forgetting to update when I trash stuff. Over the last few days I filled a large box and a large trash bag with things from the house to toss and sell. I'm counting it all as 50. Nothing like a little last-minute-gotta-show-the-house panic right?~
Yesterday I went through DS's socks and underwear drawer. Probably 20 items flung. Also 10 magazines, and a lot of paper - I'd count that as 25 things - so 55 things total.
Took 9 items to the pantry for donation on Wednesday and have flung in the trash tons of papers that I will just count as 20.
gave 2 books back to my aunt that she had loaned me
took 5 books back to the church that i had borrowed
took a pack of markers to church that were for sunday school
took 3 food items to the food bank
threw out about 20 things (mostly empty tape cassette cases)
31 things gone
we have a box of stuff to go to charity...but it's not full and out of the house yet...
1006 things gone!!
1006 things to go!!
We are exactly halfway there!!!!
the box has gone to charity. in it was about:
-10 of my books
-20 of Andrew's books
-a box of stinky candles
-about 10 dinky toys
-about 5 clothes items
and about 10 other random things from around the house.
so...56+1006=1062 things gone! 950 things to go!!
i have today off work and dh has gone to work and ds is at grandma's so i plan to do some good purging today!
~Fantastic job Dinah!
I filled two more large bags this week and counting them as 50 items gone.
