Simplify your life challenge.
 
Crystal inspired me to post here. I read on another board about a blogger who started a challenge for herself. She is getting rid of 7 things every 7 days. I thought it would be fun to do that, as I have been getting rid of things lately. I feel so good!

I don't have my camera right now, but I will start posting pictures every week.

If anyone wants to join I will sticky it! I've been working on getting rid of useless clothing. But, I have been thinking of getting rid of some more of the baby stuff.

Here is the blog.

You will have to correct the link. I don't remember seeing anything strange, but you never know.

As much as I wish there was nothing left that was get-rid-of-worthy I'm sure there's plenty :shifty And that's only one thing a day--even I can do that :giggle

8/27= 1. a bike helmet that Nana bought for dress up (won't be using it on kiddos for real ...will get new ones), 2. foam letter puzzle with numbers missing, 3. packing material used to deliver candles (haven't touched in a year!), 4. annoying bowling game, 5. items for latest swap :tu (that takes me over 7!!)

I'm planning on posting pics, but my dh has the camera and he is still housesitting. Little or small it doesn't matter!

Kelli you've got almost two weeks of stuff there.

I'm IN! We HAVE to down size as we might be moving to a smaller place. And yeah we did just move 2 1/2 months ago but... oh well tis life. And it will be paid for by dh mowing the lawn. 4 hours of lawn maintance a week pays the rent. We spend that much on our lawn now and don't get paid for it! Anyways that was OT.

I'd have to do more than seven things to make a dent in my mess, but I'll do it. Maybe if I did 7 things and 7 books a week (at least for a while; books are my weakness).

sounds interesting...get rid of - does that mean the trash, or to goodwill? I guess it doesn't matter, huh? There is so much junk in our home - I'm sure this will be easy for me to get rid of *stuff.*

I don't think it matters. But, I've got plenty to depart with.

Re: Simplify your life challenge.
 
I too was inspired by the idea at the other board.

So far this is what we have removed form the home:

1 work van of donations
2 work vans of trash

I have one yard black trash bag of clothes and 2 kitchen trash bags of clothes ready to donate....or maybe sell. :)

Plus....approx 7 books sent off through www. paperbackswap.com

Well, y'day I threw away a bunch of stuff in the garage since DH was going to the dump... A couple of boxes, a broken tv tray, a broken ride on car, and some other stuff that I can't remember now...
