Starting at 559 ....

I've been diligent about working in my office at home lately. I watch a movie (stupider the better - ben stiller is a favorite) on the computer for background noise... I work awhile filing and throwing out items, then when I am ready to quit,
I quit!! I am a paper hoarder and trying to mend my ways. :-)
I am not counting new mail that comes into the house in my lists below. I am talking about 5 years or so of avoiding filing. One of the papers I threw out was a $6 receipt from Kmart from 2006!

I started with 4 paper boxes of items to go through... I'm down to 2. (tried to attach pics, my cell phone was acting up - will try again later).

Here's my new list:
Donated : 1 soft side cooler

Threw out :
1 part to toaster I no longer own
6 business cards
1 outdated phone book
230 pieces of paper
173 pieces of paper
1 expired sunscreen
2 blank check registers (never use them)
3 rolls unused 35 mm film (use digital camera now)
49 pieces of paper
Threw out 467 items!!!!

New total: 92!!!!
That means I have thrown out over 1900 items since starting this challenge.
Yeah!!!!!
Never thought I could find that many things to get rid of.

GREAT JOB!!

I MUST start on my office......I been procrastinating about it for over 2 weeks. Its the ONLY room in my house that is cluttered. I'm so overwhelmed by the huge box of filing I need to do (mine has been 3 YEARS). I want to take START pics & FINISH pics to post. I got extra boxes up there today......so I'm really close.

2 kids winter coats
20 shirts (womens & juniors)
7 pairs of shorts (juniors)
2 kids bicycles
1 toy box
1 3 shelf bookcase
3 storage tubs (used these for ice & drinks during summer)

I reached my goal of throwing out 2012 items in 2012 last week (end of April).
Yeah!!! The final total was 2043.
Decided to make my next goal 3000 items gone.

I worked a good portion of the weekend in my office - threw out lots of paper!!


Gone:
765 pieces of paper
3 photos
Recycled 5 plastic bags
1 gift card with $0 balance
1 outdated white pages
6 misc

Another 781 items gone!!
Yeah! New total: 2824 items gone

I also "unliked" about 1/2 of my pages on Facebook.
I'm not counting this in my total but it's another form of clutter that is gone (mental clutter).

Good idea on the facebook pages! I need to do that too. I often "like" something just to get a coupon and really don't need to hang on to them after that. They just clutter up my newsfeed unnecessarily.

I also need to declutter my email! I belong to a lot of newsletters and blogs and it gets overwhelming. I'll have to make some hard choices I guess.
