It’s great to hear about people achieving success, so I was thrilled to receive this letter recently.
Just wanted to say a big thank you for encouraging us all to try this challenge.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m happy to say that just last week I reached my total of 2009, and am still counting.
I have listed all the items that I’ve de-cluttered as I’ve gone along, and it’s quite satisfying to read over the list and see what I’ve de-cluttered.
I shared a stall at a baby market two weeks ago with a friend, and managed to get rid of over 130 items and made a tidy profit at the same time, and this popped me over the 2009 mark.
It’ll be interesting to see the final total I reach before the end of the year.
Congratulations, Deb. You’re a star!
How’s your own challenge going? I have been pottering along with mine, but am nowhere near reaching my goal yet.
I can tell you this week I have culled a LOT of business cards, old flyers, out of date paperwork. A whole year of tax records was discarded as it’s past the 5 years I need to keep those records. (In Australia, it’s 5 years, not 7. See the ATO for confirmation) I’ve also said goodbye to some clothes as winter ended and I realised I hadn’t worn those items.
So my grand total now stands at 903.
