I’ve decided that I’m going to donate 3 packs of knitting wool that I’ve bought early this year. I don’t think I’m going to use them all. I don’t even have time to practise my knitting.
Also, I have a lot of clothes that are 1 size too small for me but I want to keep them in case I lose the weight. I just need to work harder on my ‘lose 20 pounds’ goal. 5 months ago
I have realised how materialistic I am. I have an addiction to online/offline shopping. I’m always buying but I’m always selling, donating and giving something away. It is an ongoing cycle. So this goal may never be ticked off. 6 months ago
Yup. I’ve thrown away a ton of crap, but I still have lots of it. I’m making good progress on this goal. A bulk of my junk is unwearable clothing. Once I start losing weight I will be able to reduce a large amount of that bulk, and it will feel so good! 7 months ago
I have donated a few clothes to the charity, the one where I currently volunteer. I’m also giving away another bag of clothes, shoes and a couple of handbags to family members.
I will be keeping a few clothes that are now too small for me. I want to drop 1 – 2 dress sizes. 8 months ago
Gave an old duvet to my mother. The only problem is: as soon as I’ve done that, I spotted another duvet in the supermarket to replace the duvet I just gave away.
I need to add another goal – Stop being so materialistic! 9 months ago
The second duvet is sold already! I will be posting it tomorrow.
Attempting to declutter my digital life too. Lots of e-mails! 9 months ago
I have listed the duvet/quilt covers on ebay. Now comes the waiting part! 9 months ago
Today I listed 9 more items. Even better, I haven’t added anything new to my clutter so the money stays in the bank. Monday I will take some shoes and clothes to the deposit so people can have those for free… 10 months ago
My room feels cluttered. I dream of becoming a minimalist, but there are far too many things on my wishlist…
Anyway, I spent most of the day evaluating the things I own. I went through my clothes (my wardrobe is bulging) and removed some of what I don’t really like much, don’t fit well anymore, don’t wear often enough, or not so sure about keeping.
Also, I will be donating or selling a recipe book. 10 months ago
I sold an exercise bicycle on ebay last month. I never used it. The couple who picked it up were happy to have it. I’m sure they’ll make the most out of it, and much more than I ever did. 10 months ago
Another step forward to having less clutter. I just sold 5 things on eBay. More space for me! 10 months ago
Its almost a year to the day since I hit upon this goal with an entry about needing more storage in the box room that is my bedroom and since starting work again I have been looking for chest of drawers and similar storage options .. either I am too fussy with the whole look or the things I have seen are just not worth the cash for the quality they are lacking in .. in the meantime the clutter is casting magic spells of ever increasing circles leaving me thinking ‘you’ve got to be joking I don’t even like shopping’ before lighting yet another candle I’ve been gifted or opening toiletries sets to get rid of in self indulgence style quite deliciously so ..
Trouble is now I want some new stuff of things I haven’t got or need replacing so its time to be more ruthless as I go through the year of out with the old in with the new I want to see more progress by joining the get rid of one thing every day to become more mindful of hidden clutter as well as those on display and make squares of fluid lines throughout my home .. Goodbye Clutter .. :-) 10 months 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…. 15 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! 16 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 :) 16 months ago
