    I'm definitely in. This week I'll be focusing on my closet. I've purged quite a bit in the Fall, but there's still work to do! Thanks for the challenge Amy.

    Okay, I'm adding 2 to my total.

    Today I purged a bag of clothes (I could count each particular item of clothing, but where's the challenge in that???).

    I also am tossing an old paper roller toy thingy (I have no idea what it's called) that the kids haven't played with in ages.

    Oooooh, I'm in on this challange too!
    Here is what I have going out today...
    1. An old ugly mirror, that has been in the back of a closet...I keep thinking I'll find a place for it, but I know I won't
    2. Set of old dishes. Tried to freecycle, had no takers...so out they go!
    3. Set of baking pans. Again, tried to freecycle, had no takers, so they are going out in the garbage.

    That is what I have so far. I know I can declutter at least 4 more things! I might count my kitchen junk drawer as one. It desperately needs to be decluttered!

    Oh! I love this idea...starting tonight. Have one of those plastic drawer things in my linen closet that has accumulated lots of odds & ends (read: junk) and I'm gonna clean that out!

    I got rid of two cookbooks I never use and a pile of papers. I have a couple of of other ideas to add to the list once I get home from work!
