Decluttering Challenge Update: 148 Items

Every Wednesday I’ll post about how many items I’ve decluttered for the 365 Declutter Challenge. I’m going to keep a running tally of how many items I’ve decluttered. If it seems that 365 items is an easy goal and I meet it quickly, I’ll probably strive for the 2011 items goal. It’s a little scary, but hopefully it will challenge me in a good way! I decluttered 53 more items this week.  Included in the pile of crap you will see a few paint sheets, some crappy yarn that was given to me that I held onto forever before deciding I’m not going to use it, and clothes.  Also?

Decluttering Challenge: +52 Items, 68 items total!

I’ve been sick, so I apologize for not getting the post up on Wednesday.  It seems that my immune system isn’t up to par.  This week I decluttered 52 items, which brings my total up to 68 items! I think it’s going to be a little more challenging than I thought to get rid of 365 items this year.  I’m really going to have to go through things and figure out what really is worth keeping and what’s not.  It does feel good to get rid of things, and I think when I have a big pile of stuff to donate that it feels more impressive than if I have more of the smaller items.  I don’t have pictures this week because I can’t find my digital camera (I didn’t get rid of it- at least I hope not!).  I’ll be sure to have some up next week. How is your decluttering challenge going? Tweet
