    - 3 old curtain rods that I'll never use
    - umpteen margarine containers that won't ever get used (they go to recyling)
    - junk mail (didn't even bring it home, tossed it at the post office)

    Amy, want to thank you again for this challenge. I love challenges because they really get me moving.

    Since the above post, I'm tossing out the following from one kitchen drawer:

    - 3 papers

    - brackets for rods I threw out earlier this morning
    - 2 sticker packs the kids don't like
    - an old egg seperator
    - tooth mirror
    - broken chain for lights
    - old toothbrush
    - old bent candle
    - Christmas decoration we never used
    - 38 bread bad ties (UGH!!)
    - 3 short pencils (dh always keeps these, again UGH!!)
    - empty match pack
    - old finger nail file
    - rubber ring
    - handful of nails, screws, etc
    - beer bottle opener (we don't even drink, it came in the Welcome Wagon basket)

    Then I got out a plastic container with pencils, crayons, markers, etc. I've tossed out:

    - 35 markers
    - 9 broken crayons
    - 4 short pencil crayons
    - 2 old paint brushes

    Okay, I actually BROUGHT stuff into the house instead of tossing it. We bought paneling for the basement wall and are having carpet delivered this week. However, finishing the basement has inspired dh and I to clear out a bunch of stuff down there that we though we HAD to keep!

    I didn't toss much but my kids did. Without my mentioning it they threw out old school papers from this year. Must have been a liberating experience for them.
