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, in March 14 items!
How did I do in April?
Grand Total: 4 items
I was hoping that March would be my low month with only 14 items gone but I did worse in April! Although I did have a baby in April so I suppose I have somewhat of an excuse for my low decluttering month!
I plan to start tackling the clutter again in May! (And I need to even more so now with baby items and toys, we have been so blessed with items for Paxton but sweet little baby items quickly can add to the clutter!)
Now I have 246 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!
