The Decluttering Continues

Have you been decluttering? Mine is still continuing. I’m on a roll and am so excited to clear my home of excess STUFF. My yard sale is going to be awesome. And I’m looking forward to making a little cash to put towards some home improvement projects.

The doll house and toddler bed aren’t going to be sold, but they’re leaving my house and going to Whitney’s.

Book tapes that hubby doesn’t listen to anymore. They’re all on CD now.

A few more clothes and bags.

Some household items. There’s a ceiling fan in that box that has never been used.

A chair and 2 lamp shades. Do the shades look familiar?

And 3 bags of garbage full of old worn things.

The yard sale corner just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

This is where I store all of the holiday decorations (except for Christmas). It will be a bathroom eventually, but that’s pretty far off so it’s storage now.

And, of course, they’re all labeled using my handy dandy label maker.

So that’s 40 more things decluttered, for a grand total of 791 things so far.

Some of you have been asking when the yard sale is. Good question! Once the weather is nice for more than a day or 2. I’m thinking probably sometime around the middle of April. It’s going to feel great to get all this stuff out of my house (and into a new loving home).

Oh, we just got about 3 inches of snow again last night, but tomorrow it’s suppose to be warming up again. Yeah!

I’m definitely going to be at this yard sale. I’ve been drooling over some of the things you’re selling. :)

Great job on the decluttering! I’m working on my office — which up til now as been the depository of ‘stuff’. It’s a scary place! I’m taking the ‘good’ stuff to charity and the trash to the dump (in fact have a truck load of trash going out today).

Good job on clearing out all of your stuff. When you are done, ya wanna fly to Chicago to help me?????? :)

I am still decluttering. I have a closet to go through soon :) And I need to really get on hubby to get the spareroom cleaned up(his army gear is all over the place!) so I can go through other things LOL. I am also sharing scrapbook stuff with others.

I would come to your yard sale, but I think you live in another state :(

that is such a great idea! I am going to start counting the things that I declutter!

I’m a very organized pack rat. I’ve got lots of stuff, very nicely organized. I recently went through and cleaned out my Mom’s and Dad’s house. Actually, I’m not quite done. I came to the realization that they were really good but tidy pack rats. You should have seen Dad’s work shop. Actually, you can. http://dinnerattheosbornes.blogspot.com/2011/02/hats-cleaning-out-self-discovery.html
It has all brought me to a new phase in life. I’m calling it purging, but I think it is decluttering to you. It feels good, but it’s hard work.

This yard sale is going to be great! Wish I could come! however, we have to be careful when going to yard sales, because we’ve been working on decluttering too, and don’t want to have things pile up again.

Apparently March is decluttering time all around. I’ve been hosting a little decluttering party myself this month.

Is your yard sale corner in the basement? That is my biggest issue, where to temporarily store things that I’m saving up for a garage sale.
