Thanks! I wish I could say that I was motivated to simply declutter my house, but my motivation is a bit different. We're moving and will have limited space in moving pods, so I have to consolidate and declutter everything or it won't all fit. I'm not so sure I'd be doing as much if we weren't moving. But it has opened my eyes to just how much junk we keep and how much stuff we have that we don't use, so I hope I remember that after we move and limit all of the stuff and clutter.

Dropped my first load off yesterday at Goodwill. I hope this is the first of many. I went through my knit shirts and it is still hanger to hanger with little room for movement. I ended up with a large Kohl's bag of unused hangers.

I haven't been posting much but I've been plugging along. I dropped off a decent load at Goodwill this weekend. My favorite kids consignment sale finally announced their spring sale date so I've been busy entering items for that. When it gets closer to time for the sale I'll go through my kids clothes again and see if they grew some more (which I'm sure they will), but I'm happy to already have some of the work done.

Hope everyone has been doing well with their destashing.

Each weekend, me and my dd tackle a closet or a cupboard. Last weekend we did a kitchen cupboard and our oldest item was hot chocolate packs that expired in 2006. But then again, my jean capri's were probably that old too.

2 boxes of food from pantry donated today. Kids diagnosed with corn allergies so a lot of stuff had to go, and I had just stocked up at a sale. Anyhow cleaned the cupboard while I was at it.

Still haven't gotten to the basement yet, oh well maybe Friday.

I got about six things listed on ebay today so hopefully I'll get those out of the house.

I rarely tackle a closet, like once a year. And I feel so great when I do. I get rid of so much, I am so happy that I have a useable closet again. But what is really frustrating is that everytime I tackle one...I look around the house thinking "wow, I should almost have oraganized all the closets now" and they are all a mess again except the one I just did. So frustrating!

Me, too! I've been busy with report cards and finishing up units at school, but I'll be back on track shortly!

My favorite donation store moved January 1, but, while I was outside w the dog yesterday, a donation truck stopped to pick some things up from my neighbor and gave me their schedule for our neighborhood. Now, I just have to call and they will pick up and leave a receipt. Makes cleaning out the house much easier.

Alright, I'm in. I need to declutter half of an extra bedroom and an attic. I'd like to at least get the bedroom done this year. Been reading this thread off and on, but jumping in here. Gotta head out tonight but I'll be back for a formal intro later this week.

I didn't get much done the past few days. I had a sick DS and DH. I was trying to work when they were both sleeping and then caring for them while they were awake.

I did semi-manage to go through the main medicine cabinet. As I was looking for medication for the both of them, I pulled out and threw away old stuff. I had an infant tylenol still sitting up there and my son is 9 so that tells you how long its been since I cleaned that. Aside from that, I went through my cleaning supplies under the sink. I only had a couple old rags to throw away under there, but I straightened it so that I could easily reach the supplies. They always seem to find their way to the back of the cupboard where I can barely reach them for some reason.

I hope y'all are having a better de-cluttering week! Keep up the good work everyone

Looking forward to the weekend so I can attack my closet. Cleaned it out last fall, but going to be more brutal this time.

Bought a sectional today with the $$$ I have made so far this year from selling my destashed stuff on FB Love my online yard sale groups! It is a microfiber one that a friend bought and then it was too big for her living room, so I got it CHEAP! Yea me! Now to get rid of our couch. The love seat will be moving to our bedroom because I would love to have a snuggly reading area in there. We are out of school tomorrow for flooding/snow/ice, so I hope to get some more done then.

Meeting a lady tomorrow who is buying ALL of DS's outgrown clothes that I have found from the past year-at least one huge garbage bag full. Hoping to be able to get some more stuff sold and outta the house if the weather will hold out.

Since the first of the year I have put out 4 bags for donation and have another one ready to go on Monday.
