Total from January through March 215 items gone
So, even though I haven’t been updating I have been faithfully decluttering. I’m just going to give the totals for each category rather than list each item individually.
46 items tossed in the trash
43 books to be read removed from my list
29 items given away
4 items recycled
129+ items sold I forgot to count how many vcr tapes I took to Half Price Books I know there were at least 30 probably more
That brings the grand total up to 466 items!! I met my goal for the year but I’m going to continue and shoot for 100+ for the last hundred days of the year. Which will get me over 500 by the end of the year.
Goal – to remove at least 300 things/activities/people so I can focus on things that move me forward and/or bring me joy.
January’s total -65. Great start to the year. I hope I can keep it up – time will tell.
Things that I trashed – total of 37
1 piece of foam – no idea why I was keeping it or where it came from 1 pair of slipper socks – too many holes to darn 1 partial block of henna – so old it started to crumble apart when I picked it up 1bag of dried up rubber bands 1 bag of hard as a rock mini marshmallows 1 broken hanger 5 manuals for items I no longer own 1 fabric scraps to small to realistically be used for anything 1 broken pencil sharpener 2 refillable pencils – no longer usable due to the boy chewing on them 3 cans condensed milk – expired 1 box of oatmeal packets -mice got in them and they were expired 2 oatmeal canisters – expired 2 lemonade mixes – hardened into solid mass probably expired 1 bottle of salad dressing – expired 11 socks – they had been used to clean the griddle and were no longer in any shape to be used 1 infant shirt with bleach spots 1 pair holey underwear
