I tossed a two years worth of old train magazines from eight years ago. I didn’t bother to look too closely because they haven’t been touched since we moved here. All of the diorama ideas can be found on the Internet these days. :)

Feeling clearer? I honestly felt a weight lift from my apartment when I cleared 50+ lbs of papers and books a couple months ago.

Cleaned out my scary spidery shed this morning (threw out a couple things, pulled out my patio furniture, tidied up overall). This is one of my less favorite spring jobs, but it's done now.

Yay for facing the scary spiders and refreshing things!melissa mccarthy water gun GIF by Saturday Night Live

Threw out various things including some old CDs, a t-shirt, unmatched socks, socks that I find annoying for one reason or another, extra parts to a standing desk.

Cleaned the bottom shelf of the fridge.

Cleared out a set of shelves and re-painted the shelves...partly because they needed it, and partly because it meant I could use up and throw out a half-empty can of paint.

 

Yesterday a friend came over and brought 4 nice glasses that she doesn't use anymore...so yeah, gained 4 things. But I partly balanced it out by giving her two unused cosmetic items that I didn't want.

I gathered all the boxes into one space near the back door (on the way to the trash out back) and then started filling them with trash -- from the fridge, piles of post that had been dealt with, a half-eaten bag of now-stale pita chips from dogsitting week, whatever I could lay my hands on while the kettle perked and then while the tea brewed.

 

This afternoon I collected all the New Yorker and Sun magazines and shelved them where they belong. I stored the tissue paper from a gift and put the box on the patio with the others.

 

The best of all possible ways to take an item out of the freezer or fridge was to make a great lunch, so I did.

 

Perfection is still a long way off, but man is the difference noticeable.

So  I have absolutely no idea how many things I dealt with over the weekend, but I threw out two full grocery bags full of trash and non-donate-able items from my son's room on Saturday, and yesterday I gathered a bunch of donate-able items: the diaper box I was using is overflowing now even before I added the snow boots (in the box on top), plus an infant activity gym that was never going to fit in the diaper box anyway hahaha. Not pictured is two additional infant tank tops that have already been claimed by my sister-in-law:

Today we 'threw out' a bunch of tree limbs--we had a tree service come and lop off some of the huuuuuuge branches that were threatening the house They did a great job, were very speedy, and our house should be that much safer for hurricane season. Also, now there is more sunshine on the lanai and a bit more in my office as well.

Missed several days, but today I got rid of 75 old papers and assortment small trash items. Which, if that doesn't get me perfectly caught up, it's close enough! Especially when you add in the still-to-be-determined number of boxes I'm going to take to the storage unit a bit later today.

 

It feels good to be getting rid of all this crap. Especially since my move is coming up much faster than I'd like. Even if the number of things wasn't increasing every day for this challenge, the amount of stuff I'm going to need to go through and get rid of daily is going to be going through shortly! Because if I don't, we'll never be ready on time.

Just washed the shower curtain today (I'm counting for this challenge anything I do that's in addition to normal daily/weekly chores).

I also found this really interesting post of suggestions for kitchen organizing. I've been interested in finding one of those pot lid organizers for a while. I really don't like my current set-up for pots and pans.

I've given up on official counts.  But as I go through cleaning and all, I'm keeping this in the back of my mind.  So, still playing, but made up my own rules.

This makes me feel better about my approach. I stopped counting after the "10+ items" days and am counting success more for the "doing something" to clean each day. (Or I'll count by minutes spent actively straightening up)

Then it sounds like the counts have done their job. The point was to make starting so simple it took effort to "fail" and build success and momentum.

D took an indeterminable amount of clothes to  a second hand store this week, sold a helmet I'm unable to use, and many organized drawers, as well as working on a new office, later...I feel like I'm very close to being done with most items I'm able to be.
