4 months of decluttering - a tally

What a strange list it is. The random, unneeded flotsam and jetsam of our life. I managed to remove 172 items from our home and brought 29 items into the house during the first 4 months of this project. That means a total of 143 fewer things so I am on track to reduce our load by 365 things after a year of effort. We'll see if I can keep finding things. Perhaps Hubby will agree to declutter the basement hoard of DYI repair items!

  1. What a list! It must have felt very "freeing" to get them out.

    1. Yes and I was surprised that the small items removal gave me just as much satisfaction.
