Decluttering - Again

Our home isn't very cluttered but there still is that stuff - that we don't use, that we feel we should use or might use some day, or that we just don't want to deal with.  I am going to embark again on going through the house including the basement and storage sheds (yes, we have two - one a proper shed and one a part of the carport).  The yard has clutter too - that pile of used bricks that came with the house and so on.

I'm starting today with a pair of worn out slippers (replaced) that will be thrown out along with some wrought iron planters and flower pots from the shed that will become a curbside offering - that is put it out and let someone else who wants it take it.

Are you decluttering and what layer are you working on?

I'm going to keep a running tally of items I declutter and don't replace as one of the pages listed in the header.  Join me?

Update: Most things were gone within 2 hours and nothing was left this morning.  Love this system of donation!


  1. This is a subject we could all talk about until the cows came home! We actually took a pickup load of books to the library, several to Goodwill and the dump/waste management took away things like a dead bar-b-que and pieces of wood. I am hoping we are good for at least a year...sigh.

    Good luck.

    Oh, and thank you for showing me on your blog list. I get traffic from your site so it is appreciated. Is the widget you used for the list available through blogger or is it 3rd party? (

  2. Keep going Juhli!

    I'm on the very last leg of a six year de-cluttering marathon....thankfully!

  3. Thanks for your comments. We do keep on top of this but now we are down to the stuff that could just sit there until we decide to move.
