Total Items out of the house: 401/365
365 less things was a success this year. I’m hoping I can continue the progress next year, although I’m more likely to have half that amount since I’m having to ask permission to get rid of most things now-a-days.
The local charity that picks up items came by and removed 117 items this morning. Four very large boxes. In those boxes was a mix of glassware (I used to collect shot glasses – yet not really use them), clothes from everyone in the family (especially Daughter Person), and a box and a half of Daughter Person’s old toys. Daughter Person made out like a bandit for Christmas, and we decided that it was time to purge her old toys and give them away. So, we spent last night going through her toys, collecting all the little pieces and putting them together, and putting them in a box. She was engrossed in Cars on the iPad, so she didn’t even realize what we were doing. There are a few toys that we’ve seen her play with recently, but Dad and I hate for one reason or another, so they went out, and we’re hoping she doesn’t know they’re missing…
How has your decluttering goal gone this year?
