We can’t believe how much stuff we have decluttered! After the “Great Flood”, we have been unpacking and decluttering along the way during July. Our stuff was delivered July 14 and we staying the night for the first time July 30. We had to wait for a bathroom to be functional. Things are not quite back to normal but they are coming along.
Here are the numbers so far for 2015:
House = 5269
Garage = 2424
Barbie’s, etc = 2301 (See this post for details)
GRAND TOTAL = 9994 with 32 trips to Goodwill. 9 of these trips were this recent month!
Items removed this month = 1632 !!
WE WILL MAKE IT TO 10,000 ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE HOUSE!! Who knew that we would actually declutter this much stuff when we started in January. We were tempted to go around and find 6 items but we are too tired tonight.
We didn’t eliminate any stuff from the garage this month. It is still full of boxes/belongings/furniture that used to be in the house. The Barbie category didn’t change either. The toys left are in the rafters of the garage and can wait until we have more of the house completed.
While we are unpacking, we keep thinking how much more work it would have been with 8362 more items. The approximate 1000 books alone gave us a backache!
