Longtime readers will remember I posted back in May of 2011 about my Great Purge of 2011.
The post is HERE.
That was when I posted my intention to Declutter my home/life BIGTIME in 2011.
I actually began sending loads to Salvation Army in February of 2011 and had already donated 3 carloads to charity by the time I publicly announced 2011 was The Year of the Purge.
I just finished going through all my paperwork in preparation for tax time later this month and here are the final results for The Great Purge of 2011.
*Now before you freak about when you see the amount of things I got rid of, remember that I was emptying a storage unit of merchandise as well as personal items in my home.
16 Loads of Stuff
1,016 Items were donated to charity and left my house.
3 Loads of Food/Toiletries
314 Items were donated to the local Food Bank.
(This doesn't include the items given to family in need.)
I know many of you enjoyed my Decluttering P*rn last year.
And I am here to tell you that you are in luck!
While I had a great year of getting rid of stuff at Chez Sluggy in 2011, the job is/was so massive that not everything that needs to leave has left yet.......
Meaning the Great Purge of 2011 is extending into the Great Purge of 2012!
Yes, another year of P*rn until it is all G.O.N.E.
I've already got half of a load ready to go to Salvation Army later this week....woohoo!
So stick around for more Decluttering P*rn here at "Don't Read This; It's Boring!".
I know some of my blogging friends were on the decluttering warpath at some point last year.....MARK and ALEX M. to name a couple. They both did(or are doing)a fantastic job! A round of applause to each of them. 8-)
So what about you?.....Did you declutter in 2011?
Do you need to declutter in 2012?
Why don't you join along and get rid of all that crap that isn't working in your life!
Just make a commitment and get moving on it!!
And once you start letting go of stuff, stop bringing more stuff in to replace it!
Yeah, it's kind of important to do that STOP buying/collecting part unless you just want to ALWAYS be intensely decluttering until you die.
Leave a comment about your decluttering successes of 2011 and your hopes and plans for 2012.
We all want to see your p*rn and cheer YOU on too!
