Declutter Challenge

I just discovered the Declutter Challenge that Amy at The Finer Things in Life is hosting.  I don't know how I missed the first 2 months of this challenge.  Well, I have been on a decluttering and purging spree lately so I am going to join the challenge.  The challenge is to get rid of 2 items per day for the entire year.  That equals 730 items for the year.  I feel lighter just thinking about that!!!

Even though I am joining the challenge late, I still have a good start with my Basement Reorganization project.  We are planning a garage sale in April, so I have been boxing up and storing all of the junk very valuable stuff from my cleaning, organizing and purging in the garage.  Any items left after the garage sale will be donated to a local thrift store.

I was so motivated by my basement project that I cleaned out my son's play room, some cabinets in the living room and a kitchen cabinet.  I think I will start working on the closets next.  Spring is the perfect time to sort and purg clothing.

I don't have an exact count of all of the items I have removed but if I had to guess, I would say at least 200 items are leaving our house!  I will update with an exact count when we have our garage sale in the next couple of weeks.

Here are some pictures of the things being stored in the garage for the garage sale.  I don't want anyone to think I am cheating!!  Looking at the garage makes me think it could use some organizing and purging as well.


  1. Great job on decluttering... looking forward to reading how you do this month!
