Progress on decluttering goal

I’m off to a great start on the decluttering goal.

Total items out of the house: 4/365

I freecycled an entire box of Daughter Person’s infant toys – soft balls, soft books, teethers, etc.  I only counted that box as one item, but there were probably 15-20 toys in it.  Little things that aren’t worth trying to sell on Craigslist.

I also freecycled an old bottle of Poly-Vi-Sol that we never opened and an old Star Wars doll my brother had given me almost 10 years ago.  It was still in it’s box – although the box had seen much better days (the reason I went with Freecycle rather than eBay).

Finally, Dad bought a new laptop with his bonus in December, and I “sold” his old one on Gazelle for almost $200 – pretty good considering that I know we bought it for $700 about 4 years ago.  (If you haven’t used Gazelle, it’s worth looking into for old Mac/iPhone/iPod items – I sent them a broken iPhone last year and got some money for it, and much easier than eBay/Craigslist).

I’ve listed some of the more expensive toys of Daughter Person that we want to get rid of on Craigslist, but no bites yet – those might just go to the donation pile.

Tell me your thoughts
