I am working on the kids rooms and going through their summer stuff. It's taking some time, since they have to try some stuff on to see what is going to fit them, but have gotten a ton done. I have a big stack to take to the consignment store in a few weeks. I also went through 2 bins of clothes in the basement that I have been keeping for my youngest and got rid of some, kept some, and moved some into his room. I hope to finish this later today.

I would like to work on the basement, but it's freezing here today.

DH and I are both home today so I am putting him to work. So far we have gotten some old thready socks thrown away and the kitchen counters cleared. We got rid of a breadbox that was more in the way than it was useful. We also got rid of a blender that has not been used in years. Off to a good start at least.

Have two bags for the dump, a bag of recycling, a bag for donation and a big box for shredding. I will be loading up the van for DH for his day off on Tuesday to get it out of here. Along with cans of paint that are five years old!

Wow. When you set your mind to it you can really accomplish lots. I think I deserve a .

Back is sore though! LOL

So.... paint after 5 years isn't good? I better tell DH

Pretty sure he has a few gallons in the basement.

Where do you take it for disposal?

We have had a lot going on and then all three of us have been sick on top of it, so I haven't accomplished nearly as much as I hoped to in the past 10 or so days. I did manage to get through DSs closet and drawers though. I now have a stack of clothes to donate, a stack of old uniforms to donate to his school and a stack to take to a consignment shop. I hope to drop all of that off at the appropriate places this week so it isn't sitting in my living room.

Realistically, I probably won't be doing much decluttering this week, as I'm now behind on regular housework, so I hope to get that mostly done this week after work and then maybe focus on decluttering again next Sunday.

Keep Up the Great Work and Happy Deluttering Everyone!!!

Our city dump has a hazardous waste section for paints, small propane cylinders, etc.

Vietnam Vets is coming yet again today. One bag, three boxes and 2 chairs. Cardboard recycling on Wednesday so I want to get as many empty boxes out of the attic as I can.

We are out of school today for President's Day, so destashing while the kids are home is not an easy concept, but I'm determined to get a few things done.

Goals for today:
Destash the entertainment center shelves, top of fridge, small bookcase in foyer, cabinet in hallway, kitchen cabinets, and kids' art center. If I get even half of that done, I'm calling it a success!

I also have a huge stack of things that I need to list on my fb yard sale bag. Here's hoping I get that done too!

Threw out three bags of trash, donated five bags of clothing, and three boxes of books / cds / vhs to the library.

Felt SO good to see that stuff leave my house!!!

We've also made huge progress on cleaning out our family room. I started it and DH helped me finish it this weekend.

I also started on the pit of despair, aka our fourth bedroom. I'm happy to report that there are clear pathways now and we've regained the ability for guests to stay! I'm still working on that room but it feels good to have gotten so much done.

Took the day off since the kids are home from school and actually got a LOT done! Went through the office/spare bedroom/game room and have 3 donate bags, 4 trash bags, a full recycling bin and a bunch of stuff put away in a much more organized manner! (and DD 14 spent two hours going through her old school papers reading everything before she put it in the "keep" box or the recycling...she had fun!). Moved on to the kitchen...we have this little built in desk/cabinet area off to the side that just collects junk...well the junk from inside the cabinets is gone- went from 9 full shelves to 2 full shelves and a bunch of empty space! Tomorrow's task is the desktop under the shelves.

kitchen

I destashed some kitchen utencils and just geneal organization. Still have pots,and pans to do though. Don't imagine I will find anything under there. Unless I finally decide to recycle that strainer I thought I would love and actually hate lol

I also tossed some cold meds that DH doesn't think work as well as others. I also came across a broken belt that I would fix some day. That's gone too
