A post Christmas purge…

Christmas this year was a quiet affair, just mum, B and me. For some reason we ended up with a casual approach to it all, not the typical dress up versions we normally have. I have to admit, I like the casual approach much better. Had I known in advance, I could have packed half of what I brought, clothing wise that is ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve been home for about a day from my UK trip, and I’m all unpacked, the washing is done, I’ve finished the book I got for Christmas, and it’s time to get back into the declutter game ๐Ÿ˜‰

You might remember, my plan was to shed 210 items this month. I didn’t quite get there before I left on my trip. I did have a few things that was all ready to go, but since I never got around to writing about them….

So I figured, this is as good a time as any to catch up on those items, and while I’m at it, why don’t’ I just throw a couple of more items into the mix to see if I actually might make it to my 210?

Here we go – 80 items out-the-door:

  • 28 DVD’s (18 movies and 1 DVD series) – part of my ย “Watch a movie program
  • 7 books – part of my “Read myself out of a book shelf” program
  • 1 worn out CD case
  • 4 flower pots
  • 3 flower pot trays
  • 1 T-shirt
  • 1 long sleeved top
  • 1 pair of socks
  • 21 items of miscellaneous stuff
  • 13 used notebooks and user guides

I believe this will be my last purge for 2015, considering new years is just around the corner ๐Ÿ˜‰

Did I manage my 210 for the month of December? Well, why don’t you check this out;

69 itemsย of clothing and stuff ย + 79 CD’s + these 80 = 228 items out-the-door

I’d call that a PASS, wouldn’t you?

      Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s not always so easy to keep track of the numbers. Not only do I keep forgetting to take pictures of some of the stuff, but I also forget to even count some of the items that leaves the house…. I’m with you, I just want the stuff out of the house! But for the blog’s sake, I do try to keep up on the numbers ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy new year right back at ya! Hope 2016 treats you well, with loads of fun days, family time and accomplishments of your 2016 goals ๐Ÿ˜‰
