    Default Week of 2/17/08 - Getting Rid of 7 Things Challenge

    Well, we appear to be petering out around here with this challenge. I'm hopeful that means that you've all just been decluttering fiends and really have NOTHING to get rid of at this point. My guess is that may not be the case.

    I've got two grocery bags of items going to the trash today. We had a birthday party for the boys yesterday and as I knew new things would be coming in, we weeded out some of the old and broken.

    Anyone else?

    Count me in! I'm moving next month, and I want to get rid of a ton of stuff first.

    I've already brought three boxes of stuff to the thrift store, and sold an old laptop that I am no longer using. Right now, I'm culling through books to see if any will sell on cash4books.net.

    I'll post back as I clear out more.

    Wow...I agree...moving is an excellent time to purge. I wish I had done that before our move, 4 years ago. I'm still tossing things that I should have gotten rid of befor the move.

    Good luck and keep us up to date!

    I'm still decluttering, but at a very slow pace. Over the weekend I've gather a stack of catalogs for the recycling bin. Also have several books to sell or will give away. Yesterday while sorting the glass stuff (cups, jars, candle holders), I found 2 or 3 to give away. Next I plan to sort the Spring/Easter what nots later this week & continue working on my closet.

    I just put two bags out to the trash and freecycled the Elmo pinata we used at the boys party. It was a pull-string type, not a bash-it-to-death type. So, even though we used it, it can be reused.

    I've got one garbage bag done, I've gotten a little behind on the decluttering.

    Gather a bag of junk for the trash when I sorted through several boxes of decorative stuff the other day. Found several items to sell/give away: more candles & holders, a wall tile, Spring & Easter what nots. I have lots more decluttering to do in several areas over the next few days.
