So Ladies.... here is your chance to clear things out. I'm starting the new year with a "366 Challenge" (it's leap year) and I invite you to join me.
Between now and Dec 31 2012, I'm going to try to donate, gift or toss at least 366 items from my home. One item for every day of the year. Yes, that is right... 366 items out of here this year. Think how much lighter the house will feel by next December!
I'm going to get rid of things I've outgrown, things I've already read, things that don't suit my taste anymore, duplicates, and things I must have been crazy to buy in the first place. :-)
I can give things away to friends who collect, donate to a charity, sell things in a garage sale, sell things on e-bay, or throw broken stuff in the trash. It just can't come back in the house. I can get rid of 7 things each week or 31 things each month. But one way or another, 366 are gonna be outa here by the end of the year. (If you don't make it to 366 that's OK. Just do the best you can.)
I've already got my first pile ready to go. Yay!!
1. Blue taper candles (4)
2. Snowman dinner plate
3. Stacked snowman decoration
4. Candycane pin
5. Rustic sheep decoration
6. Butter dish (with no lid)
7. Book- PS What I Didn't Say
8. Book- The Time Travelers Wife
9. Book-Brer Rabbit
10. Book- Jantsen's Gift

12. Lotion (unopened)
13. Hand gel (unopened)
14. White taper candles (6, not pictured)

Only 351 things to go.
C'mon and declutter with me!! It will make you feel good to let go of things you don't want or need. Your sagging cupboards and overstuffed closets will thank you! Remember, one woman's trash is another woman's treasure, and these things can all go to someone else who needs them or will appreciate them more.
(Let me know if you want to join in. I'll start a list, so we can all encourage one another.)
