S.O.S Update

One week into my S.O.S Challenge (Sick of Stuff) and I'm meeting and exceeding my goal (get rid of five items a day)!
I took 30 books to the library for their book sale.

I have a box in the back of my vehicle to donate. While I didn't count each item, it is stuffed full of books, toys, and clothes so I'm going to guess that there is at least 20 items in there.

I also threw several items away that I can no longer use, at least 5 things.

So that is a total of around 55 things out of the house this week! Well above my 35 item goal. I've already got another box started for donation, and a bag ready for the consignment shop. We shall see how I do this week. :)

  2. I'm with you Elizabeth! In spite of having 2 large yard sales and purging, I still am surrounded by stuff! I threw away 2 pairs of shorts and 4 t shirts that I was saving for painting clothing. I figure I can just turn a T shirt inside out for that purpose. Now onto the junk drawer!

    1. What's weird is when I have garage sales I am so proud of myself - boxes and boxes of items sold, large items purged from the house. And then I look around the house after the sale is all over and think "I hardly notice anything gone!" lol

      I'm scared of my junk drawer(s).

  3. Great job! I cleaned out the toy room this week and got rid of two big garbage bags full of stuff, plus a few smaller Wal-Mart sacks. I have another garbage bag going that's about 1/4 full right now, and I didn't even have to try to get that stuff. I'm actually looking forward to cleaning out closets.

    1. Yay! We can do this together! It really does feel good to get rid of boxes and bags full of unneeded items, doesn't it?!
