    Help me with this - what is fling 2013 things ..
    Does is mean you fling (discard, donate) 2013 things in the year 2013?
    Or can you sell them too? I'd rather sell items if I can.

    Yay!! so... I'll interpret that to mean... out of my house.. can be sold or donated. I like!

    I will start with the items as soon as the weekend comes along.

    Cheers!

    Since I only got rid of about 1000 items toward the 2012 goal this year, I'll be joining the 2013 in 2013 challenge on January 1st. Still have a lot of stuff that must go!

    I'm in! I will be having a garage sale with my mom in the spring and am going to be cleaning out closets this week while I have some extra time in the hopes of finding a few things to sell for some extra income this month. I will do my best to keep a tally and record it here!

    I'm in! Went through the boys' catch-all tubs today and sorted items for keep/donate/trash. Their room still looks too full but a little better. I didn't count items so I'll just count the number of bags: Donate = 1, Trash = 1

    I've got a total of about 40 things that have been tossed/prepped for donation in the last couple of days. DS's toy box was dumped out and several junky little things were tossed. In going through our clothes, I've pulled out several items to be donated and a few of the kids' baby clothes that were just too stained to be given to anyone else.
