Declutter Challenge: May | Frugal & Simple

Declutter Challenge: May

I have set a goal to have 365 things gone in 365 days! 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!

How did I do in May?

Clothing: 35

Books: 2*

Crafts: 0

Decor: 0

Kitchen: 0

Other: 6

Grand Total: 43 items

*I sold 1 of those books for $4.50 on half.com!! (Which brings my grand total of “stuff” sold up to $174.50 for the year…not too shabby!!)

After only getting rid of 4 items in April, I did much better in May! Most of the items I purged were my clothes, which made my closet look much better!

Now I have 203 items left to reach my goal which averages out to 29 items a month throughout the rest of the year! I definitely think this goal is achievable!!

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!
