You didn’t think I’d forgotten, did you?
Here is what I have rid our home of since my previous update:
Items Donated or Given Away:
- linen (blankets, towels etc) x 44
- kids clothes x 163 That was a big one, folks!
- my clothes x 12
- accessories x 7
- home decor x 14
- baby items x 37
- books x 6
- magazines x 6
Items Thrown Away (Beyond Repair or Use):
- odd socks x 11
- miscellaneous crap x 9
Total = 309
Add that to the 407 items already gone, and we’re at a total of 716 items of clutter, eliminated. 36%.
But now, I think we head into the hard stuff. The amount of things I can reasonably throw away is diminishing, as we’re at a point where lots of the easy-to-spot useless crap is gone. I haven’t been a hoarder for a long, long time, so I’m going to have to start making decisions – real decisions – about things soon.
Do you have trouble letting go of certain things?
