My goal this week is my dd 6yrs olds clothes... I have aways been the type to have more than 1 weeks worth of clothes, so I don't have to do laundry often. But then if I wait 3 or 4 days to do laundry, I make myself angry. Lol so I am downsizing her clothes, with just minimal...

I did this recently with my own clothes and it certainly made a difference.

I am back to digital decluttering of blurry photos, multiple shots, etc. I was working on decluttering the photos on the pc but just got a notice from Google that I have exceeded my storage amount. :eek:

Lana, I had my oldest move out 12 years ago and I just took more of his stuff to him last week. Every chance I get I take something to him or give stuff to another child that has left the house.

I've lived without almost all of my household goods for over six months and our new house is smaller than the old one so I'm finding it very easy to declutter. I started with the two bookcases and I have two bags of books that are going to the thrift store. The bonus is that there is now enough room on the shelves to display the decorative bookends that have been in another box for I can't count how many years.

It seems that as quickly as I declutter I find more to do. All the talk of decluttering photos has me thinking that that would be a great Winter project. I also have many other great Winter projects to do so will need to add it to the list.

Had the kids go through their closets and pull out any clothes they no longer wanted and then I help my son go through his shirts and we pulled several that were border being to short. Passed my daughter's clothes plus a comforter that she no longer wants and hasn't used in a a couple years down to a niece and will pass down my son's clothes to a nephew. Went through all the mail and papers from end of the school year. Filed away papers we need to keep, separated the rest into burn or recycle piles. Thankfully recycle pick up is this week :)

Wish we had recycle. I hate to burn, but it looks like some decluttered papers will be burned when I have time.

Halimer love the Gooseback books! and the diy home one, but I won't ask for them because the shipping would be more than the price of the books. Thanks for offering these to our group.

The wood couch is finally out of mil's house (we were keeping it there). DD took off with a long summer chair (we never use it and I wanted to get rid of it), and she took 2 organizing trays too.

Still moving out paper

Took 2 new Christmas shirts to work to give to whoever wants. Got for $1 at Wal-Mart after holidays and still have tags on them.

Did the one-thing-a-room-declutter. Got rid of old Birthday cards, plastic swiffer stick (have enough).
To give to dniece: Christmas stamps, duo-tangs, notebook, empty journal, 1 binder.
Also took out 4 whistles out of the Christmas closet and will give to dniece and nephew for CIJ when we go on the fishing trip... Santa will be at the campsite and gives gifts to the children.

Added the following to my two bags of books: twin duvet covers with pillowcases (no more twin beds here), two Turkish bath towels (that were ridiculously expensive and ended up shedding fluff no matter how many times I washed them and seemed to stay damp even after they were hung up to dry - mega fail on that purchase), floral king-size flat and fitted sheet that were at least 25 years old, four assorted totes, a wooden dog that was a doorstopper, a plastic jug, two mini fondue pots, a bag of three kitchen tools (peeler, coffee scoop, and one of those things you hook to the side of your pot to hold a spoon), and a deep fryer that I used once. I need to get a bit better organized and declutter by room; right now, I'm just grabbing things as I see them and putting them in a big box marked Goodwill.
