Declutter Challenge: February

I’m joining in with Amy for her Declutter Challenge! Amy’s goal is to get rid of 730 items in 365 days (which is 2 items per day!)

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!

In January 56 items left my home!!

So how did I do in February?

Clothing: 7

Books: 12

Crafts: 8

Decor: 4

Kitchen: 4

Other: 5

Total: 40

Craigslist Sales

  • Comforter $15
  • Potrack $20
  • Scrapbook Paper $10
  • Mandolin $100
  • Jacket $25


Grand Total: 45 items

Money Made: $170

Making $170 for our unwanted stuff is wonderful! We have less stuff and more money!!

Now I have 264 items left to reach my goal!

Are you thinking about decluttering in 2010? Here is a video post about getting rid of 30 Things in 30 Days! It is amazing how much you can get rid of if you just get rid of 1 unwanted item a day…easy decluttering!
