I'm Getting Rid Of 100 Things!

I'm still packing up Christmas and thinking about what needs to be removed from my kitchen so I can redecorate it.  This is tiring stuff and I had to take a break and get my Pinterest fix.

What should I find there but a challenge! ~

This is Lets Lasso The Moon take 100 things off your home's waistline challenge.

Say what?  One hundred things!!!

Yup.  Before you panic, they're not saying to get rid of things you love.  That's not what is bogging me down anyway.  They're talking about that candle that never burns evenly, a vase with a chip, magazines, dishes that are in the wrong colour.  How about toys the kids have outgrown, duplicate tools and the waffle iron you used in 1983.  

How many purses does one woman need?  Eeeks!  That one will hurt.

Clothing is going to be a good start for me.  I need paint shirts.  I don't need thirty paint shirts.  I wear the same one all the time anyway. (I know, that's disgusting!)  

I'm giving myself one week to hit that challenge goal. 

I'll let you know how it goes!


  1. I do that at least every 2 months anyways (not one hundred things every 2 months, but a few things) I guess that could add up to 100 things in a year! Sometimes more. I hate clutter, lol. Good luck with your decluttering!

  2. Maureen, I am known around here as the ultimate 'purger'. When we renovated our kitchen last year I had so much fun purging!! The thing is that there are certain things that I like to hold on to....stacks of magazines would be one. Good luck on this one. I always think it is a good idea to 'edit'.

    Way to go! I felt much better after my last session of decluttering my living room. Now on to the next room, but which one?

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog today. I am cleaning in my basement and so far all I've flung is cardboard and plastic (recycling) and garbage. 4 loads of laundry done, 2 put away. Getting there.

  5. I've trashed or donated 38 things already!

  6. I LOVE this idea! How are you doing with the challenge?
    Have a wonderful day
    Ps: You are so right, being comfortable with only having yourself is so very important. In my opinion, it is also a pre-requisite for being able to love
    Pps: Am your newest follower :-)

  7. Love that goal! Hope you will also link up to our Imagine the Impossibilities Challenge on Jan 31.

    My challenge is purging and organizing 16 years worth of "stuff" in my basement - scary!

    Hope to see you there.

  8. Ok, this is a great challenge! I'm going to get started today. 100? Well, maybe 50...(I need all of those ramekins)
