Clearance The "2015 in 2015" Challenge

Time to set our "declutter counters" for 2015!

Is your life feeling a bit cluttered? Looking for incentive to get rid of things that are dragging you down?

The goal is to toss or donate 2015 items over the next 12 months. Sound daunting? Well, look at it this way:

It breaks down to:
- 168 items per month
- 39 items per week
- or ONLY 5 to 6 items per day!

Let's make 2015 the year to clean up our lives!

You can download simple tally apps for smartphones to help you keep track.

Thanks for starting the thread, Brie!

I started yesterday with emptying all of my expired coupons from my coupon organizer. I counted each category as 1 item. Also went through our overflowing mail bin and tossed a bunch of the local coupon magazines that had expired w the new year.

I think 2015 in 2015 is an understatement to what I am undertaking.... from age 17-24 I moved a total of 9 times. With moving so often I never really had a chance to build up too much clutter. My husband and I have now lived in our "new" house for 4 years and the clutter has began to build. My daughter asked if I'm trying to clean out everything, to which I replied yes! Here is where I am at for the month of January

From the bathroom:

Items Tossed:8
Items Recycled: 10
Items Sold:4
Items Donated:32

From the living room closet:

Items Tossed:42
Items Recycled: 0
Items Sold:25
Items Donated:75 (mostly children's clothing)

From my daughters' room:

Items Tossed:20
Items Recycled: 0
Items Sold:40 (Toys)
Items Donated:25

Total for January : 281 items gone... I'm not including junk mail, papers, and magazines that I have tossed this year. I just need to get better about containing paper clutter.

February is getting off to a great start. A gal at work was collecting for her niece's since their Dad lost his job in construction after shattering his wrist. My daughter went through her things and we donated a huge bag full of clothing. Another 20 items gone plus it went to a good cause!

Still haven't moved yet so I still have time to de-clutter and get rid of things,

So far,

40 magazines, 1 bag of expired coupons that mom will take to be mailed out for the military, and 1 bowel to mom also.

1 melted lid in recycle bin. Will count this as my mother-in law takes out the recycling and trash cans. We currently live in the house behind her, former rental.

I have gotten rid of around 600 things so far this year. I cleaned out all of my Christmas decorations and wrapping paper, etc before putting them away.
I cleaned out my garage (got rid of 60+ items out of my toolbox - it had become a giant junk drawer), my laundry closet & my stockpile (donated a bunch of items).
Had lunch with a friend yesterday and gave her 15 old magazines and around 10 toiletry items.

Threw out dried up playdoh and twisted slinkies out of my son's bedroom. Donated his smaller clothes to a friend with grandkids.

I've given away tons of outgrown kids clothes to friends, relatives, or donation over the past few months. DH cleaned out his closet and I finally let go of a beautiful trench raincoat. It was pretty but never really fit well. I haven't worn it in 5 years. Goodbye, beautiful raincoat. I had a big stash of handled paper shopping bags from various stores. I counted and am embarrassed to say that I had around 75! Not the reusable ones, but the paper ones like from The Loft, Banana Republic, Victoria's Secret. From when I was working and used to shop for myself more. I took 60 to the thrift store bc they use them at the checkout. It feels kind of luxurious to walk out of the thrift store with a fancy bag! A friend took our crib for their new baby on the way and we just dropped our countertop microwave at the preschool bc the one in their teachers lounge is broken. We have a microwave over our stove and this one has been sitting in the garage since we moved here. Glad to find people who can use these things! I also took 13 items to the kids consignment store yesterday.
