I have set my personal goal to have 365 things gone in 365 days! I think this is still a lofty goal…an item a day! And once I reach this goal I’ll continue decluttering…hopefully more than 365 things will leave my home!
My one rule is that hand-me-downs from others don’t count! How is counting someone else’s cast offs helping me reduce clutter? So, if I receive items and decide to pass them on or donate to Goodwill, they will not be on this list!
So how did I do in January?
Total: 56 items
I decided to categorize to help me keep track of what is leaving!
Here is clarification on categories:
Crafts: Things like patterns, fabric, spools of ribbon, etc.
Decor: Any home decorations…in January most of the home decor that left was from Christmas decorations!
Kitchen: Dishes, utensils, etc. but no food!
Other: All that other random stuff that doesn’t fall into the above categories!
Here is my pile of stuff to bring to Goodwill! I also have 2 bags to bring to our Pregnancy Center!! I love that it’s leaving!
Now I have 309 items left to reach my goal!
