2012 in 2012

Boy, I knew it would be a challenge to declutter while in college and caring for my two children, but I honestly thought I'd be doing a little better than I am. I spent my spring break in bed with the flu instead of spring cleaning. Not sure which is worse, lol. But anyway, here's my list of discarded items since last blog post:
  • 11 Magazines
  • a pair of old socks
  • bottle of expired Nyquil
  • 12 children's clothing items to charity
  • puzzle rack
  • fairy wand
  • 3 stuffed animals
  • another bad of broken toys
  • baggie of old hair elastics
  • 4 necklaces
  • a belt
  • 12 adult clothing items
  • 2 place mats
  • a pair of shoes
  • old bottle of sunscreen
  • And my greatest purge 120 items sold at my local children's consignment sale!
Total items = 147
1797 - 147 = 1650 items to go!

Anyone doing this challenge should be around 559 items (give or take). I'm at 362. So that's 197 items behind. Yikes. Oh well, I always have the summer, right?
