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? Note that really weird gourd thing that I was given. I still have no clue what its true purpose is.
I’m going to cut back from the weekly decluttering posts because I’m worried I’m boring you all with the mundane details. I’ll start posting on the first Wednesday of every month. I’ll still keep decluttering, but I’ll just be updating once a month.
When I first started the challenge, I was worried that I’d be done decluttering in the first month. It turns out that isn’t the case, and I’m really being challenged to decide what we really need and what we don’t. It’s been a good exercise for me!
