Decluttering the stuff has slowed down this past month. Our focus has been on finishing the master bath shower. We’ve had delays in getting the contractor to do their part on the shower floor. Now that we are both working again, time seems to be our biggest hurdle to getting the house back to normal. There are only a few boxes left in the garage.
We have noticed that our time after work during the week is less stressful. Having less stuff makes picking up so much easier! If only we had recognized this when we had small children living here!
So now for the numbers!
House = 5780
Garage = 2500.
Barbie’s, etc = 2301 (See this post for details)
GRAND TOTAL = 10,581 with 38 trips to Goodwill. 1 trip in September!
Items removed this month = 71 !!
New Goal – 12,000 by the end of the year. The garage is our next focus area! Barb still has boxes of books to go through!
