The 2016 declutter thread

Post by Penguin » Fri Jan 01, 2016 12:14 pm

Ok peeps, here we go again...

Set your own goal for the number of plastic grocery bags (or equivalent) that you can pass on- donate, sell, whatever. Useable stuff out the door is the point of the game. Let me know your number (or whatever other goal you want eg'to get the spare room clear" and I'll put it up.

Goals:

Chiggins:12
Digdig: 20
Mama Magoo: 82.3
Penguin : 50
Wildchild: 70

Have been going through piles of unopened mail, years old. So disheartening. Think I'll give up for a bit.

I'm currently sitting on the other end of my couch. This is significant, as it's usually covered with crap

Actually, I'd like to change my number please. I chose it before I had seen my total for 2015, which was 41.15. Somehow without knowing that number I had doubled the 1.15 so then I thought I should double the whole number- goodness knows I have loads of stuff to get rid of and this will only scratch the surface so could you change my target to 82.3 please Penguin.

... And I hope your day has improved, really sorry I missed the bit about you crying before. Big hugs, your family is not stupid.
