Clutter-Busting Challenge Day #3: We got rid of 16 items total!

Every week day in May, I’m challenging my readers to try to find at least 7 things to get rid of. These can be big or small things, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you actually throw them out, sell them, donate them, recycle them, or find someone else who can use them. Think you’re up for the challenge?

Here were the things I rid of today — yes, I found some more junk! :)

  • 4 articles of clothing
  • 5 books
  • 1 marker that doesn’t work
  • 2 misc. lids
  • 3 used batteries
  • 1 charger that doesn’t work

    I’m so excited about this challenge. I’m catching up with the cleaning from last month and it was definitely a success my house looks so much cleaner then last month! Even though it can feel like while cleaning with kids, brushing my teeth with oreos! :) I’m going to keep up with it each month at least to have a plan each day or week.

    I just mentioned this challenge to my husband and he laughed because we can easily throw away or get rid of more than 7 items each day in this house! One of the challenges of mine is the office and it has so much stuff that I need to go through just that room alone for a month maybe two? hahaha!

    Day 5- not much today. I threw away 3 bottles of old nail polish, and then decluttered my email inbox. If I count that, I got rid of hundreds of items! :-)

    broken necklace, not worth enough to be repaired
    broken bracelet, cute, but has been repaired twice and not worth any more effort
    out of date course catalogue
    purse calendar
    trip itinerary for trip already taken
    decorative mat board from my trip to Alaska in 2005. If I haven’t used it yet, it’s time to go! Plus it is bent in weird places
    2 plastic lids I used for mixing paints
