Can you believe 2019 is over??? We did continue our decluttering journey this year. Every so often you open a drawer or closet and realize it’s looking “full” and messy. In straightening things out, some stuff just has to leave! Here are a few things that we shoved under the bed, in the dresser “junk” jar, the bathroom cabinet, and kitchen drawer. It sure would be nice to get rid of the “junk” jar – or rename it!
This year we removed at least 884 items. Why did I say at least? We were not as dedicated to the counting aspect this year. We began the year by saying we weren’t going to count and then felt an overwhelming need to count. Go figure!
Here is a surprising set of numbers: Since we began counting in 2014, we have counted and removed 16,951 items from the house! Since the average house has about 300,000 items, we figure we can work on 2020 items in 2020.
