Sharon at My NEW Uneventful Life had started a Declutter 50 items challenge on her blog and I decided I will participate. The goal is to declutter 50 items in June, although, at the end of the first week, I seem to have had more items come in than go out! That's what happens when two neighbors clear out their parents' belongings and invite me to take what I want!
Items coming in:
1 file cabinet
1 patio table
1 patio chair
4 small bowls
1 bed sheet
1 box stationery
2 sets of kitchen towels/pot holders, etc.
1 board game
1 small wooden table
= 17 items
Items going out:
6/2: 1 old kitchen towel (torn and stained; tossed); 1 blue & white bowl (given away with peaches and blueberries)
6/3: 1 cardboard box the stationery came in (recycled)
6/4: 1 cardigan (given to me by a family member who decluttered it from her closet; silver and black, 3/4 length sleeves, and not meant to be buttoned in the front; not quite my style as I like full length sleeves and being able to button up the cardigan; to be donated)
6/5: 1 sweater (given to me by a different family member who was decluttering her closet; again, not quite my style with beads and sequins; to be donated)
6/6: 1 magazine
6/7: 2 plastic containers (recycled)
= 8 items
You'll have to do a lot better than that in the upcoming weeks, Bless!
