8,700 things gone, only 1,300 to go
Just when I was needing some inspiration (three days have passed and I’ve only completed one day of decluttering), a reader sent me their decluttering tally:
I got a bit inspired today (thanks to you) and did some decluttering.
What I recycled:
14 unused toothbrushes
1 electric razor
1 knife in holster
What I tossed:
7 used toothbrushes
7 mini toothpastes (dried up)
2 dried up deodorant sticks
2 airline headphones
9 assorted sprays and creams
(all accumulated over years of airline travel)
What I recycled a few weeks ago: 50 books, novels, texts, self-help etc.
Talk about talking my language! Even better, they sent me their pictures:
You would think that with 13 days left (and such inspiring readers) my decluttering would be in high gear. Foolishly, I saved the hardest stuff for last. I’m frantically listing stuff on craigslist, laundering things, even doing a little spray painting to spruce things up for sale.
Life has intervened a bit and I’ve had a wee one home with food poisoning (a very mild case, but still….). So, it is with pride that I present the 100 things I cobbled together tonight. This one’s for you Bob! Thanks so much for sharing!
Have you decluttered anything particularly gratifying lately? Do share!
What I tossed today: See above. Not pictured: 3 pairs of skis listed on craigslist.
