Clutter-Busting Challenge: The final two days

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?

After a month of clutter-busting, we’re down to the bottom of the barrel here! I cleaned out the play area and craft area and come up with a pile of pretty much just junk and trash to toss/recycle.

On Monday, we’ll be starting a new series called 5 Days to Set Your Summer Up for Success. I’m really excited about it — and hope you will be, too!

Clutter-Busting Challenge Day #21: I cleaned up the backyard!

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?

I cleaned up the backyard today and found two items to get rid of, a few more kids’ books on our bookshelves we aren’t using anymore (I loved one of your comments that recommended getting rid of books you can easily get from the library and I think I’m going to slowly move more toward that direction with our kids’ books — especially when it comes to paperbacks).

  • 4 kids’ books
  • 1 marker that doesn’t work anymore
  • 2 misc. items I found lying in the backyard

  • 1 plastic tube
  • 2 pairs of beauty gloves that are really worn
  • 2 kids’ books

I’m taking your suggestions and going back through my house another time. Today I went through our bathroom, closet, and bedroom. And I was excited to find 7 things:

  • 5 hangers
  • 1 pair of very used knee highs
  • 1 used up tube of Mary Kay foundation

Clutter-Busting Challenge Day #18: 9 more things to add to the donation/trash bag {and help me out! Where else should I look?}

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?

I had a lot of trouble coming up with things to toss today. In fact, I went back over a few rooms that I’d already gone through and found almost nothing to toss. I guess that’s a good thing!

But I’m soliciting your help. What other great ideas do you have for places I should look for things to get rid of? I know I’m missing some spots so send any and all ideas my way. I realized tonight that I still need to go through the DVDs & CDs, sock basket, and a little bit of the garage. But after that, I’m rather stumped.

What places could I be overlooking? I’m positive there’s more stuff to toss lurking here, I’m just not readily thinking where to look — and I’ve got quite a few more days left in this challenge. 🙂

Clutter-Busting Challenge Day #17: We found 10 more items to get rid of!

I’m still digging over here and still finding things every day — even though it seems like I’m getting to the bottom of the barrel. One of my friends jokingly offered to drop some of her items off on my driveway if I run out of things to get rid of. 🙂

Today I found some lids in the garage that we no longer had the bottoms to, two kids’ books, a pair of shoes that Silas outgrew, and a part of a broken hanger.
