After a Long Break From the Decluttering Project

4,031 Things

WERE LONG GONE

by the end of 2017

 

That’s where I left off in my decluttering journey shortly before Christmas.  But I needed a long break.  I didn’t put any pressure on myself to keep going on the decluttering project.  I knew that soon enough I would be back at it, when I was ready.  Once in a while I would start to think about it but just didn’t really feel like it.

Until I woke up the other day….

and it popped in my head
The Quick Six

Yep, that was really the thought.. The Quick Six.  So I grabbed a pile of clothes and found 6 things to get rid of.  It was quick.  But it didn’t stop there.  The kids have been moving rooms and had the upstairs hallway full of stuff.  I brought most of it to the living room and starting going through it.  I was aiming for 18 but had no problem surpassing that goal within a few minutes.  It didn’t take long and I stopped when I didn’t feel like working on it any more.  In those few minutes it took, I got rid of all of this:

  • Keyboard
  • Forest Hotel book
  • 101 Ways to Bug Your Parents book
  • Drive Me Crazy DVD
  • Bhagavad Gita book
  • One Door Away from Heaven book
  • Mighty Moustache
  • Bearcat Scanner box (I should probably look to see if the scanner is in there huh?)
  • Fish coin purse
  • Belt
  • Toy lion
  • Hood from a coat with a broken zipper
  • Breath freshener spray bottle
  • Sunglasses
  • 6 erasers
  • 1 pair of socks
  • Hot Wheels track connector
  • 6 pens/pencils
  • 2 Popsicle sticks
  • 14 clothing articles (My daughter’s favorite shirt was in this pile.  It’s too small for her and I was willing to keep it because I know she loves it so much.  But…. she said, “No, get rid of it.  It doesn’t fit and I’ll try to wear it somewhere and it will rip in front of everyone so just get rid of it.”  I know this was really hard for her because she has the hoarder tendencies so I was very happy that she was able to let it go.)
  • 3-D glasses
  • 3 socks
  • Bird bath
  • Bird toy
  • Water bottle
  • Play-doh
  • Light bulb
  • 20 school papers
  • Cupcake ring
  • Littlest Pet Shop toy
  • Pirouli container
  • Shoe lace
  • Hair tie

84 more things that I never have to pick up again!

4,115 Total!!

5,000 is going to come quickly this year!  I can tell!
