Declutter Challenge: March

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, in February 45 items left!

How did I do in March?

Clothing: 5

Books: 4

Crafts: 0

Decor: 0

Kitchen: 2

Other: 3

Total: 14

Grand Total: 14 items

I didn’t do very well during the month of March but I suppose 14 items is better than 0 items! Hopefully my April numbers will be up a little more!

Now I have 250 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!

Did you do any decluttering in March as a part of your spring cleaning? Do you plan to declutter during the month of April?

  1. I am doing the 2010 in 2010 declutter challenge. I want to move later this year so have chosen this very ambitious goal. I have decluttered 200 items in March and have donated four bags of stuff to charity! My goal for this month is to declutter another 100 items and start listing the saleable items on ebay.

  2. Haha…. 14 items…. YES it IS better than zero!

    If it makes you feel better I packed a second bag for our trip to DBF’s family Easter celebration… Just to get my numbers up, I decided that a bag full of DBF’s little brothers clothing SOOOOO counted… glad I did too cuz it is great to have it out of the house!

    Start getting rid of somethings now so come April 30th it won’t be so overwhelming! Good Luck!
