    Sort and inventory one tote each day - it's one of my monthly goals on my blog so I have to be accountable. I've been piling things up in the spare bedroom forever - at first it was divided into three stacks - one to go to Okinawa in the regular shipment, one to go to long term storage, and one to go into the express shipment to Okinawa. Now it's all to go to Washington so that makes it easier. Still a big task so one tote a day makes it manageable - time to get rid of things that haven't been used since the last move so I should be able to make a nice stack for the consignment shop.

    We have had excellent luck with the decluttering so far since we had the yard sale. It did push us to get it done. Now I'm looking around thinking there sure is a lot more I could declutter.

    Good job y’all.

    DD26 and I cleaned out the spare junk room and hauled off to donate. Then she went through her room. Then she and DS14 clean up screen porch.

    I have a ton of scrapbooking supplies. I think over the next few weeks I'll gather up all the items I will not be using to have a sale or put them on eBay.

    I had 5 extra dining chairs that were taken yesterday. Today, I went through the mudroom closet and bagged outgrown scarves, gloves and hats.

    I am very inspired by you all. Am waiting to finish double shifts at work and then I am into it.

    Went through both large and small storage room upstairs and out closet - have overflowing large trash bag of clothes to be donated - need to inventory first for taxes - still need to go through DS's closet too.

    Also took down one large bag of trash from upstairs as well.

    I also got the pantry reorganized, expired items tossed, etc. So glad to have all that done!

    Hoping to get into the garage today or this weekend and bag anything up that can go to the charity bin. I have a tote of breakable things, they will need to be taken elsewhere.
