Day 66 Lids with No Containers

I know that I shouldn’t have done it but I did.. I gave the girls lids without containers.  I think it’s so frustrating when you need a container and none of the lids match.  I told them I was putting a few in there though so they wouldn’t get too mad.  I also snuck in a few jars of peanut butter.  Silly little thing with that too.  The daughter who is moving is the one who is notorious for leaving messes around the house.  She bought one of these jars of peanut butter.  When the container was almost empty, she left it sitting on the counter.  Someone put it in the cabinet.  Really, it was almost empty.  So I put it in the box with that other one.

Day 65 Lots of Tupperware Cups and Some Food

Since all this kitchen stuff was going to my daughter’s apartment, I threw a bunch of food in the box.  I’m not sure if her and her roommate will really want the Mickey Mouse Plate and Bowl set but I sent them anyways.  Sometimes they love the fun little things.  The white measuring pitcher in the upper right is Tupperware I really like it but I have another one.  Of course!  Even though those Tupperware cups are my favorite style, I was fine letting them go because I have enough of them even with these gone.  I still can’t believe how much I got rid of so quickly!

Lots of Tupperware and a Little Lock ‘n Lock

Decluttering Efforts are going a Little Too Good

Deal with it or throw it away? My answer lately has been throw it away. I’ve been so busy that I don’t want to have think about all this stuff. My living room is just about back to how it was before my daughter moved back home and I love being in there!! There’s a few more things that I still want to finish but it’s so nice!

Day 64

I don’t mind loading the dishwasher but I hate unloading it.  I save that job for the kids but they don’t care for it much either.  We all agreed that the hardest thing about unloading the dishwasher is finding a place to put the clean dishes.  They weren’t fitting in the cabinets! It’s getting easier now since I got rid of lots this week!

Day 63 – Look Out Kitchen Here I Come!

My daughter moved out and told me that she needed kitchen stuff.  I had no problem helping her out!  In one day, I was able to fill up a huge bucket of stuff for her.  It was so easy and she couldn’t believe how much I was giving her.  I was shocked myself and I hope I don’t regret giving so much away.  I don’t think I will.  There’s still plenty of things in there.

Day 62 – Nothing Important in this Bunch

Another Santa hat and some worn out boots, a pitcher, dried up paint and a candle.  There’s also a couple little flower pot and a weather thing.  There’s a couple other things too that make it 18 for the day.

I think that I decided that I need to get to day 112 by the end of the year. That will make 2018 things.  It’s going to be more than that by the end of the year but I’ll change it up once I meet that goal.  I’m over half way there and it’s getting super easy now.  I got rid of a lot more today but I will post those over the next few days.

Day 61 – More Toys from the Basement

I’m still going through things in the basement and have found lots of toys to get rid of.  I think this little cloth bag with the arms and legs has been around since I was a teenager.  It’s been packed away for years and I didn’t miss it at all so I’m finally getting rid of it.  The rest is all just a bunch of junk. 18 more things gone!

Moving Stuff Back to the Storage Room

I’ve been at a standstill for a few weeks now.  Nothing more than a lack of time to work on clearing the clutter.  The storage room, that was transformed back into a bedroom, is now back to being a storage room.  I’m so excited!!  The best thing is that once my daughter got all of her stuff out of there, there was a lot less stuff in there than I was thinking there was.  Plenty of room to put the pile of stuff that’s been growing in the living room.

I know that’s a bad idea but it feels so good to have all the extra stuff out of my living room again. It’s wonderful. I would feel guilty about it except like I said, there really wasn’t too much in there after my daughter got her stuff out. That means that I’ve been making actual progress!! Real Progress!  Yay!!

Yes, there is still so much stuff in here but it’s back under control again.  I’ll start posting again soon. Hopefully by tomorrow!

Day 60 Dancing Elmo and Some Leap Pad Books

I loved the Leap Pads and I’m sure that I still have a couple around but we always had a problem with them.  The books were never with the cartridges which were never with the Leap Pads.  I even had a few cool cases for the kids but for some reason, the parts were never together.

Things have been a little bit slow here in the picture department but I’m trying to keep up with it.  The stuff is coming out of the basement faster than I can count.  A lot has just been thrown away but that’s okay with me.  There’s still plenty left to count!  I was planning on having a free table last weekend but we got too busy with a marching band competition.  I’m hoping to do it this Saturday but we’ll see.  I’m not feeling so great tonight.

Day 59 Buckets of Little Toys

I have lots and lots of buckets of toys and I’m getting rid of a bunch of them.  This one was full of books, movies, doll clothes, and little tiny toys.  I have lots of random parts too.  The fact that I’m getting rid of any of these is amazing!  What’s even more amazing is this isn’t it.  Lots more to come!
