Time to Declutter
On one of my Australian frugal forums the call went out ...............

Declutter challenge, could you find 50 items in your cupboards or house that you no longer need or want that could be passed on to another or a charity.

So I was thinking that I would go through my cupboards and see what I have, I figure that anything that goes I will re organise my linen cupboard to start with and move around the house ......... would I find more than 50?

Recycling week is coming up on the 9th Nov so this will get me going ... and I will have hopefully more open decluttered space to move and actually find things I want at a glance.

Anyone else game to see what they can find?

Oh wow who wouldn't have 50 things that they don't need or use anymore. DH alone has that much unfortunately we all are pack rats though I've been making an effort to sell the excess for a neater home and a little pocket change as well.

What a great challenge! I am always looking for things to donate etc. I would love to try this challenge! 50 things, hmmm....
to be continued.....

.... but I won't (I don't think) be touching anything from my sewing/craft room .... but on the other hand you never know what I've outgrown and forgot about!

I seem to have a few things that I bought and put away for the boys (little things that were on special at the time) but now they are to old so will have to see if I can filter them down.

I love this idea! I've sent you a PM about it. :)

Who is game to list those odd things they have that will be going or take a photo of things going out?

My inlaws rang last night to say they are having a garage sale next weekend, wow there is now even more incentive!

I am on number 13.

3 teen shirts, 2 pairs barely worn teen boots, a lamp, 2 children's games, a purse, a blow up chair, 3 flower bowls.

I have Big Brother and Sisters coming on Friday, so I definitly have incentive!
