Monday Decluttering Challenge

I haven't talked about this in a while, but has anybody been working on decluttering this summer? I talked about this in prior posts, about how I did a "Declutter 365 items in 365 days challenge." Here is a link about the "rules" I used in my decluttering challenge.

I recently bought this three drawer plastic container to organize the contents under our downstairs sink. I'm still working on it, but I will post photos when I finish.

I recently put an ad on the web site Clean Mama. Check out her site; she writes about decluttering, green cleaning, gardening, cooking, etc. Great site!

In the meantime, here is a list of more things I decluttered during my challenge that we do not miss:
- 2 paper back books I won't read again
- 2 medicine bottles
- 1 watch (sold)
- 1 set of earrings (sold)

- 7 empty jewelry boxes
- misc old business stuff (4 items)
- 7 boxes
- 1 fan that broke
- 2 A/Cs (Handy Man sold them to people at work)
- 2 old plastic trash cans we aren't using anymore (recycled)
- 6 t-shirts that Handy Man doesn't wear anymore
- 5 rubbermaid lids (recycled, don't ask why I had just the lids)
- 4 t-shirts from Handy Man

It's pretty funny to look at this list now...and wonder why we were keeping some of this stuff around.

Great job -- we have some of those plastic drawers, too, and they are very handy. We have been de-cluttering since spring, but still a lot to do (esp. with the addition and losing that garage/storage space.) Having a yard sale last weekend helped, but now I have to go through all my CM stuff and homeschooling stuff (which is about 95% of all our clutter!)
