Well so far it’s been relatively easy to get rid of things.  Primarily because I’m avoiding some things I know should go but that I’m having trouble parting with.  So I’m tackling the easy stuff first.  Here’s the latest.  Side note, I got my youngest daughter involved when she asked what I was doing. “I have too much stuff I don’t use or like,” I told her.  And off she trundled to make her own pile.  I wasn’t about to argue.

Items 6-14: tops I never wear anymore.

Items 15-18: pillows wedged into the linen closet that are too uncomfortable for anyone to actually use.  I don’t know why I was saving them.  Also Euro pillows (the massive square decorative pillows) are I’m afraid, utterly pointless and dated.  I got rid of the last one I had.

Items 19-22:  My daughter, Ivy’s pile including an elephant that sneezes when you accidentally step on it in the middle of the night.  Can’t say I’m sorry to see it go.

Item 23:  I vaguely remember buying this.  How cool! I thought.  And it really smells like PlayDoh!  Except that no one in their right mind wants to spritz this on their body.  No one.

I can't explain why I once bought PlayDoh cologne. I CAN explain why it didn't fly off the shelves.

  1. Awesome! I got rid of an old flower vase, at least 10 pieces of clothing, a table cloth and a few toys yesterday. I do this regularly and yet my closets are still overflowing! 😉

  2. I think getting rid of the stuffed owl was a mistake but everything else, excellent work.

    • Mireya, I sort of agree. It’s made sadder by the fact that the owl won’t look at me, sort of like when you don’t want to get called on in class. Please don’t pick me, please don’t pick me…

      • Mail the owl to Mireya. With a tag around its neck that says “we miss you!” Owl is still a data point toward your 100, Mireya has a new friend. Win-win.


  1. […] finished tossing/donating/selling 200 things and am well on my way to the third 100. Yes, I counted each thing, including each diaper in a box […]
