Well, I’m finally here, at the end of my 21 day declutter challenge. Yeah I know, a shocker isn’t it!
How on earth could I have known, when I started my 21 day challenge in January, that it would take me 8 months to kick this “challenge” out of the park. It’s quite ridiculously, how this has gone on and on and on… 😉
But happily.. it’s all over, finally!!! And since I’m sticking to my current 3 day write-ups, you get all the dirt in one go!
As I have mentioned a few times before, I tend to use my guest room as my catch all when I declutter.
This is just a small portion to show how crazy it can get.A mess, I know, why don’t I clean it up for you, a little 😉
I used to have an tiny apartment/condominium in town before I moved out to where I am now, and in my bedroom I had a wall decorated with odd items from around the world.
Since I moved to my current home, I haven’t kept up my wall of weird. And today I’m sending off among other things, two of the last reminiscences of that wall, my wooden masks.
2 wooden masks (I’ve kept my favorite one.. you never know, I might start another wall 😉 )
1 humidifier – it kept spitting water all over my floor 😦
1 wine bottle cooler
1 bathroom rug
1 green golf mat (for indoor practice)
1 silver plate
= 10 items
It’s funny what pops up when you go through your stuff, this all… serves no purpose anymore.
A couple of things like the cards and the dog show medals, are sentimental items. But it’s time. I took a picture of the medals and I have cards that means more to me from the same people.
The rest? That’s just junk… now!
Some cards, count as 5
1 toiletry bag
1 box of letters and numbers for crafts
1 green box
3 dog show medals
Bunch of random junk, count as 20
8 sets of post-it notes
Bunch of random papers, count as 5
1 bag of shower curtain holders
3 plastic bottles
1 box of clothing wax
3 packs of hooks
1 Vin’in bag (when you want to travel with bottles)
1 pouch of rocks
1 bottle of hairspray
1 alarm clock
Bunch of plastic, count as 3
Medical and sport items, count as 7
2 storage nets
= 70 items
And as we weren’t’ done with random stuff… here is some more for you 😉
2 – 3D puzzles (really cool puzzles that I have done several times over the last 25 years)
3 chargers (2 broken, one with UK plug)
1 lantern for candles
1 blue box
1 very worn out kitchen aid blender (I had to get a new one)
2 pictures with frame
= 30 items
I’m sure there were stuff I missed counting in the chaos, and the numbers should really be more, but I’m sticking with this for my last three days!
Day 19, 20 and 21 = 110 items
Which brings my new grand total for 2017 to 945 🙂
PS… there are actually more that has gone out the house, but (in the spirit of keeping it short and sweet) that will have to wait for another day.
Oh, yeah.. and one of my TV channels are having a Star Trek movie run every night this week, and today’s is starting in a few minutes… I’m sure you all understand… 😉
