I'm jumping in!

I have needed to purge for the longest time, and I'm finally making some real progress.

In the last two weeks, I have:

1)cleaned and organized my closet and given away old clothes to charity
2)Sold a few bolts of leftover fabric at a neighborhood garage sale
3)Sorted through old fabrics to be sold at a garage sale in September
4)Organized Office/Workroom

Today I did a lot of cleaning and laundry, and also sorted and priced some ski jackets and ski pants for sale at a local consignment sale coming up in September.

Goals for the week:

1)Sort under the kids bath vanity
2)Go through the mess of paperwork in my office!
3)Make final plans for September garage sale

It's nice to know I have company in this, and I am enjoying reading about everyone's progress!

I was finally able to put the kitchen back together yesterday. I was able to purge a few more items. The kitchen cabinets looks so neat & orderly.

5 pairs of sneakers made their way to goodwill today

and several other really worn out pairs hit the trash. So I managed to do a little destashing here on the fly!

One trash bag full of clothes to goodwill today; two more sacked up that somehow didn't make it to the car. Next trip!

I *still* have to deal with all these cloth diapers that are taking over my bedroom ...

I have been super busy with work lately but today I managed to clean out my closet. I have lost more weight and have gone down another size so I purged the clothes that were too big. I will drop them off on my way to work in the morning.

I have the weekend off so I hope to get some more done.

I have been super busy since kids started school,football and softball but I took the box of books I had purged to a friend. I also took the last bat of clothes I had cleaned out of the closet to goodwill. I may tackle a small project today while DD8 is at chorus practice.

Went to goodwill today! Got rid of a box of random stuff, a 55 gallon trash bag of clothes that DD didn't want from BFF's daughter. And a large hamper of boys clothes, they have out grown. Mom went with me and she got rid of 15 picture frames, and 2 totes of random stuff.

I also sent a note to the school librarian about 2 boxes of books. She gets first refusal before I take it to the town library.

I destashed the van that has been sitting in my driveway for six months!! I have been begging DH to do something with it since it broke down and my brother(mechanic) said it wasn't worth fixing. I sold it to a friend for the parts. I am just as excited about it being gone as i am about the money.

I need to do that. We have an old VW Jetta that needs to get gone. We were going to fix it up for DS16 but I can buy the stuff to rebuild the Mini we have in the shed for a lot cheaper than trying to rebuild the Jetta (it has sat for 10 years).
DH just needs to get out there and haul it away.
