December Clutter Challenge~Wrap Up

I can’t believe its been a whole year since I saw Amy’s challenge at Finer Things.  Honestly, I wasn’t so sure I would follow through with getting rid of so many items.  What’s amazing is that I actually went past that number and still have a house full of stuff!

Here’s a little secret…two years ago we had twice as much stuff.  When we moved into this smaller house we got rid of loads of unnecessary things.  Don’t miss any of it.

The plan this year is to pare down to only things we use regularly and love.

 

My December wrap-up is a little unorganized.  The month just had too many things happening.  There were at least 50 items donated, nothing was consigned and several grocery bags full of paper clutter were recycled or tossed. That puts the total close to 900 items that have left this house since the beginning of the year.  Kinda scary, huh?

I’d like to give a huge thank you to Amy for starting the challenge.  Thank you! Thank you! My house is pounds lighter because of it!

  1. 900? Wow, Great job! Isn’t it amazing how much stuff we have but don’t actually need???

    Thanks for linking up, and I hope you’ll keep sharing in future months!

  2. So impressive. Think how different our communities would look if we would all simplify and live with what we need.
