Recycled at H&M. Will buy some socks with a voucher I got in exchange and give away the other vouchers.
Out: cheap, dodgy lamp that looks like a fire hazard. A pair of tatty shoes, a broken photo frame and a very scratched frame, a pair of scissors that I could not sharpen enough no matter how much I tried.
Stacked in the donation box: keyboard, mouse, aquarium stuff, candle holders, books. 4 weeks ago
Just bagged up more clothes for the H&M recycle bin and having a break now before getting stuck back in.
I’ve got SO MUCH to do before my house guest turns up in 11 days, but I’m feeling positive! Really needing some big boxes though. Big blue IKEA bags will have to do in the meantime. 1 month ago
- Six bottles binned: old and clumpy.
- Some clothes bagged up; H&M are running a clothes collection. program, so I’ll be making the most of that.
- Three pairs of old shoes ready to go into the bin. 1 month ago
I’m giving myself 10 days to at least get everything that can go (donate, sell, recycle, etc) into boxes. 1 month ago
I’m not sure I would count clothes as clutter, but I’ve been buying a lot of clothes and now I have too many and not enough space. So no more new clothes for at least 2 years. I will have to try my best to avoid certain shops…. 2 months ago
I’m doing a couple of hours a week. Lots of paper clutter recycled and shredded. It’s amazing how much can accumulate.
Putting things aside to use at the office.
Getting study papers together and deciding whether to have them scanned or just keep them in paper format. I think scanning WOULD be ideal, but I won’t be doing that myself, it’d take too long. Must find a company that does that. 3 months ago
As always, very slow progress. Just started scanning ephemera I collected over the years. I like product design, graphics, typography, etc., so I picked up a lot and didn’t have a plan for it. I’ll set up a digital scrapbook and decide whether to bin the actual paper or not.
Broke a few glasses. Accidental uncluttering.
I’ve got a growing stockpile of things that can be given away, but with no clear plan for how to do that as we don’t have a good donation system here.
Preparing another box of books to send off for scanning. 3 months ago
I have made it my goal this summer to go through a minimum of one box per week. Some weeks have been too busy, in which case I add an extra box the following week. Generally speaking, I usually end up doing more boxes than I intend to anyway.
This goal is starting to pay off in more ways than one. Yesterday, I chose a box to go through that has been sitting on a high shelf in the garage for years. When I opened it up, I found notes from my mother on family history items that will move my genealogy research forward considerably. There were some old photos, too, and the best find of all – some of my mother’s jewelry, including her wedding rings! 3 months ago
This is something that most people forget about, at least I think so. I am always trying to make sure to get rid of bulky emails, delete pictures/jpgs and things like that. My work email fills up really fast and at least 3 times a year, I get cut off from emails because of it. Argh!
BUT, I’m getting better at it :) 4 months ago
Today I took a grocery bag full of clothes to Goodwill. It wasn’t much, but it’s a start, and still a few items of clothing less than I had before. Once I lose more weight I’ll be able to donate more clothes, and my parents have a ton that they need to go through and get rid of. But this is about me and my personal clutter. I’m slowly reducing it, and it feels good. :) 4 months ago
I only have my living room pic but that’s alright. I totally rearranged my front room and living room. I probably dumped about 5 boxes total, got rid of old toys, some books, and just stuff we don’t use or need. I feel like this new layout really opens things up and we can still all see the TV :) My front room is also more open and streamlined a little. It’s our office area and so I think it’s going to work well for when school starts. The boys seem to like the change and I was able to move around and vacuum some areas that had been neglected.
I also cleaned out two shelves of Tupperware and glass bowls. On one hand, it was tough to get rid of things (to me all I could see where dollars going out the window) but then I thought, I never use these and someone else will. I recycled what I could of the Tupperware and donated the rest. I hope to declutter on a weekly basis. I never realized how much crap I have and never use. 4 months ago
I am embarassed to admit that my desk in my home office had become such a mess that I could no longer even use it, because of all the paper stacked on the desk. I have now purged most of it and filed the remainder. I have also purged most of the papers sitting in my file cabinet, many of which were at least 15 years old or older (this was due in a large part to my husband hanging on to a lot of paper). Together, we went through the cabinets and purged most of it. Some of the files and papers, which were only his, I did not touch. However, they have all been stored in a central location and I have suggested that he take some time to purge. If he doesn’t, that is not my problem. I have dealt with my paper issues; he can deal with his when he is ready. 5 months ago
I got rid of a TON of toys (I always do that when the boys aren’t here, hehehe) and some clothes and minor household items. My next goal is to get rid of some kitchen stuff. I have way too much that I don’t use and I think it will help calm my nerves as well. 5 months ago
I forgot to mention a HUGE accomplishment I have made in the past month. Both at work and at home, I had accumulated literally thousands of emails (dating back to 2007), that were just sitting in my inboxes. I decided recently it was time to get rid of digital clutter, too. I devoted an hour a day for about a week at work and managed to either refile or delete all emails. For the past two weeks, my work email inbox has not contained any emails older than one week. I finally gathered up the courage to do the same thing at home this past weekend (32,000 + emails in my inbox, some read, some not) and filed or deleted all of it, and now that email inbox is also clean. It feels good. 5 months ago
Sad to say that five years later, I still have not accomplished this goal. I have decided this goal is too general, and am going to do baby steps, with more specific sub-goals.
I did manage to sort through papers on my desk at home this weekend. I now have a functional office space again!
Between now and the end of July, I am going to focus on my garage storage. I will be going through one box per week and dealing with purging most of it. I have not used any of this stuff in years, so how much do I really need it? 5 months ago
I’ve already donated quite a few boxes to Savers, Goodwill, etc. but there’s more. I seriously need to declutter my house if I have any chance of possibly selling it or renting it. My place is shrinking on us and I have to get to the place where it’s just “stuff” and let go. 6 months ago
More video games and consoles sold today. Slooowly getting there. 6 months ago
Another 100+ tomes off to be scanned and transformed into pdfs for my iPad. I need to scour the apartment one last time for any books that may be lurking in corners, make one last order, and then by July I should have only 5 or 6 hard copies of books left.
Found a company that does magazine format stuff too, so I might consider doing that.
Friend came over on Wednesday night to pick up a video game console/DVD player. We didn’t ask for any money for it, it seemed like a nice thing to just give it to him.
Today’s decluttering goal: clothes, clothes, clothes… 6 months ago
- prepare bag of books for library
- go through pantry
- take box of random things out of cupboard, go through it
Art supplies are all gathered together; unsure of a box of buttons and assorted accessory parts. Will look around for projects and if I don’t do something with them by this time next month, out they go. 7 months ago
I have already scanned, saved, and discarded all of the paper copies of my notes from nursing school. The pile of notes I had from those 2 years of schooling was large enough to fill a 30 gallon trash bag. Ridiculous. It feels good to not have the piles of notes taking up physical space in my room, One day I’ll get rid of the copies saved on my hard drive, but until then I have peace of mind knowing they’re still around, in case I need them someday (lol). 7 months ago
