    I re-purposed a pair of jeans into funky capris for dd. Finally totally cleared of the kitchen table.(we tend to leave some because it is 4x8.5 ft..lol).

    Cleaned the kitchen.

    Tomorrow, I'm going through the hall closet.

    I am cleaning out the spare bedroom. The catch all room. Have gotten rid of lots of stuff. Plus more to come.
    I want to repaint and actually make it a guest room.
    Need to get rid of the twin bed in there and get a full size one.
    This will be a work in progress as it has a wallpaper boarder that needs to come down.

    i am decluttering the kids clothes this week. so far i have one garbage bag full.

    i moved and repurposed a book case. it was just collecting junk. now it is neatly holding books...what a ''novel'' idea for a bookcase.

    i was able to reorganise the office because i got that bookcase out.

    I decided to work on the master closet.

    - 3 throw pillows that don't match(comforter no longer warm).
    - 5 pairs of jeans that I've been saving for the day I'm slimmer, but I don't like them..lol. So they are gone.
    - 1 pair of dress pants that are too big
    - 1 pair casual pants that don't fit well.

    From dh side:
    - 2 hockey jerseys he'll never wear(been here 3 years unworn)
    - 1 pair of track pants he's never worn(in 7 years!)
    - 3 golf shirts he complains about(too short, wrinkles to easily or itchy)
    - 2 long sleeve t-shirts he hates to wear(but won't get rid of because they are new..doh)
    - 1 sweater he used to use for camping but prefers to use fleece now(unused in...9 years??)
    - 1 pair of work pants with holes to the trash.

    I did find a pair of jeans for dd4. So that was a bonus.

    Also 1 large shoe box, a box for an electronic that we aren't going to be returning. 1 pair of baby tights. An old gift box.

    More to come....

    Hiya,

    Over the weekend I clean out all the closet in house and gave away 2 bags full of my son toys his out grown. I also have a old atari with games that I'm putting craigslist. I took a 5 blankets to the aid box. Today I clean up the hall and Laundry area.

    Dh came home and after supper he went through the closet as well, plus the strage closet in the basement. He removed 3 pairs of jeans, 4 pairs of pants, and about 10 shirts! Several shirts were repurposed for camping shirts to leave out there. A few were also designated to make clothes for the kids or given to me to use, Of those I"m keeping 2 for sweaters at the campsite, early mornings are cool. If I don't use them, the'll be donated. There were shirts in that closet he hasn't worn in 12 years. He finally let go!

    My goal is to clean out our storage and finally put the shelving units up. Need to take about 5 boxes to Goodwill, just never seem to remember.
