Pin It First, I wanted to thank everyone who stopped by here yesterday with some support and ideas about this blog. I really appreciate it and I plan on exploring all the possibilities in the upcoming week. Thank you!
Dear Carla mentioned another great challenge going on and I decided to join her and some other lovely people:
The idea of the challenge is to simply get rid of 100 things before December 15th. I've been de-cluttering this whole year and got rid of more than 300 things in the last 9 months. But I still have plenty of stuff that needs to go. So I decided to join this challenge. It will help me to reach my 2012 goal and more.
I started today and threw away:
2 Kid's T-shirts - one that is covered with "dots" from my unfortunate laundry+crayon experience, and one that is just too old to even be donated. By the way, I tried everything possible on those sheets and some clothes but nothing helped. But I did find a wrapper from a brown crayon, so no doubt it was the offender. Lesson learned (never allow kids to color pictures on your bed when you try to do the laundry...)
3 ALL YOU magazines (from last year)- recycled
2 boxes full of paper (mostly Hubby's school papers)- destroyed or recycled.
93 more things to go. I do know that I will "cheat" and finally get rid of all of the empty spray paint bottles in our garage next week...
Are you up for a de-cluttering challenge? Do you have a particular place/room in your house that really needs to be cleared out, preferably before the holidays?
