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!
This week I focused on cleaning out my bathrooms. As you can see in the before picture below, we had a plethora of towels. I counted the number of bath towels that we had. 28. 28 towels for two people! I realized that was crazy, so I weeded out the towels that weren’t the greatest quality or were showing signs of wear. I also went through our wash cloths and hand towels and separated the good ones from the bad. In addition to towels, I also went through beauty products and makeup and ditched things that I didn’t use.
And here’s the pile of junk that I donated this week to Goodwill:
This week I got rid of 27 items, which brings my total to 95 items. Not bad!
