Clutter-Busting Challenge Day #1: We got rid of 32 things!

Every week day in May, I’m challenging my readers to try to find at least 7 things to get rid of. These can be big or small things, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you actually throw them out, sell them, donate them, recycle them, or find someone else who can use them. Think you’re up for the challenge?

So, I challenged my girls to see how many things they could find to get rid of today. I told them I’d pay them $0.25 for everything they got rid of.

They were highly motivated and went through their room, the toy closet, and the craft shelves and came up with this big box of items! We counted and there were 32 items in all! It’s amazing how a little incentive works so well! 🙂

Clutter-Busting Challenge Day #2: 5 things plus a stack of magazines

Every week day in May, I’m challenging my readers to try to find at least 7 things to get rid of. These can be big or small things, it doesn’t matter.

Most of today’s clutter consists of junk — and I’m not even sure why we still have these items.

But here’s what I got rid of:

  • Tray
  • Lid that doesn’t have a tub to go to it
  • Binder dividers — I don’t even know where these came from!
  • Speaker that no longer works
  • Dry erase board that is so old and used it doesn’t work anymore (why was this still in my basement?!? :))
  • Stack of kids’ magazines that have already been read/used/looked at

Clutter-Busting Challenge Day #5: I found $40 while cleaning out a drawer!

Every week day in May, I’m challenging my readers to try to find at least 7 things to get rid of. These can be big or small things, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you actually throw them out, sell them, donate them, recycle them, or find someone else who can use them. Think you’re up for the challenge?

I was pretty excited that I decided to clean out one of my office cubby drawers today because I found a sack with items from a previous couponing class I’d taught. In it were some visual aids I was using for the class — like magazines, coupons, and so forth. But at the top of the sack was an example of our grocery cash envelope and in it was $40!!

I had completely forgotten that I’d put that sack in that drawer months ago so I was pretty excited to have my clutter-busting efforts rewarded with $40 in cash today. I can buy quite a few groceries with that. 🙂

Today’s things I got rid of:

  • Stack of magazines/old coupons/fliers
  • 4 items of clothing

I took the girls out this afternoon for a Girls’ Afternoon Out together, so I didn’t get around to my clutter-busting until later today. But we had such a fun time together, so it was totally worth being a little behind on my to-do list!

I cleaned out the bookshelves and pantry in the basement today, as well as the junk drawer in the kitchen. I worked ahead since I’ll be in Pennsylvania the next two days. So you’ll have to wait to see what all I found to get rid of in my posts tomorrow and Friday. 🙂

Today’s things I got rid of:

  • 5 books
  • 5 miscellaneous pen parts found in the junk drawer
