I had planned to declutter 5-10 items a day in April. I started out the month so well, listing what I decluttered, each day, as well as what items came in, if any (1 shredder, 2 huge bags of clothes!). I did that for the first eleven days of the month and then, I got lazy, I guess, because I stopped listing decluttered items daily! Without that accountability, I didn't always declutter 5 items, a day. But, I kept track of what I decluttered and decluttered at least 120 items, during April, which is not too shabby, I think.
6 items of clothing (2 jackets, 3 blouses, 1 pair of pants)
20 file folders full of statements, correspondence, tax documents, etc.
4 brass spoons
spare office supplies (counts as 1 item)
3 sample sized shower gel bottles
1 tube sample sized body lotion
3 lace curtains (the old ones from the living room window)
some dried flowers/rose petals (old potpourri; counts as 1 item)
5 glass jars (used to root cuttings, mostly unsuccessfully)
6 x 3-ring binders
20 plastic cases that video games came in and their inserts
1 plastic zippered case that bed linen came in
5 decorative items (including a blue and white bowl that broke)
1 jigsaw puzzle
1 pie pan
1 small flower pot
3 lids to containers I no longer have
2 containers without matching lids
1 perpetual calendar with quotes about love and friendship
2 small toys
3 food containers (given away with food, with a do not return request!)
6 or 7 cardboard boxes
Did you keep track of what you decluttered in April?
