still (!!!) decluttering {enough, day 34}

I don’t even know how it is POSSIBLE that I filled two whole bags (+ a stack of school books) for our Big Cambodia Yard Sale today. It felt SO GOOD.

What did I get rid of?

A pair of soccer cleats Livi had passed to Ava and Ava outgrew (Nina has retired from soccer).

A pair of Converse All-Stars (same story–minus the part about Nina’s retirement).

9 school books (I finally got rid of all of our math books. Like I said on Facebook today, “Would a REAL minimalist un-schooler have these silly things in her home??” We now officially have ZERO school books. Woot!)

3 “fancy” coloring art books.

2 extension cords. We had 3 (2 were in our van). For our little apartment. Hello?

A kite. (our neighbor snagged it before we got it to the car)

3 flower pots. (not practical at this stage of the game)

2 DVDs.

1 book.

1 picture frame.

1 pair of shorts, 2 pairs of capris (I bought them at the thrift store, and they didn’t fit.)

1 wipe-off Car Fun book.

I think that’s it. ISN’T THAT CRAZY??

And guess what? I’m going to do it one more time tomorrow!! This is SO MUCH FUN!!

And I just have to give a shout-out to some awesome friends who have donated some sweet stuff for our Cambodia Sale. Ali, Allison, Amanda, Another Amanda, Beth, Josh & Laura, Kate, and Sharon–THANK YOU!!

And our friend Pam (who is hosting the sale and going to Cambodia with us for part of the time) is AMAZING. You should see all the stuff she’s purging! So great!

Last thing: be watching Facebook/Instagram/Twitter for some fun Yard Sale posts on Saturday! I’m going to feature some stuff we’re selling and give you a chance to buy it (even if you’re not local).

What have you purged lately?? (if nothing, quick! go purge something and come back and report!)

    It is my goal this month, since we’re moving and I will have to pack, to begin the de-clutter process. The less I have to pack, the better. So, ask me about it lol!

    Also, had to give you a Liebster Love shoutout on my blog! Love ya

    We went through our entire garage last week and got rid of a lot of stuff – sold some, then donated the rest. The donation pile was about 7-8 large boxes, 2-3 bags, & other miscellaneous items too big for a box. I still have the basement to sort through & the school room as well. I love purging too! 🙂

    good luck this weekend!
    found out the stack o’things in my guest bedroom has found a good home. 22 year old in my area has leukemia and someone is requesting items for the charity yard sale to benefit her. 🙂
    true confessions: i whine about jay, but it will be me who is dragging in yet another garbage bag full of shorts. my sister’s friend has a shopping addiction. and is my size.

    This week I decluttered a bunch more from our kitchen, and some toys from the three year old’s stash. I went through our extra blankets and set several aside to donate to a homeless shelter, and pared down the saved baby blankets for the kids so that each only has two. The rest will go to newborns in need. I cleaned out a box under the boys’ bed and got rid of some shoes and winter coats (i also found a treasured Nintendo DS game that had been missing a long time.)

    Purged the kitchen pantry tonight. Hidden in the back of an upper shelf, hubby found unopened bags of mini-marshmallows with expiration 2011!!! LOL
