2014 In 2014 : Update

Standard

I’m feeling under the weather today, so I’m keeping my afternoon as simple as I can.  The boys walked to the park at the end of the street, to give me some time alone.  I’m using my free time to declutter and clean up a bit.  My goal is to work on my 2014 In 2014 list.  I’d like to get to 300 items today, which is totally doable.  From there, I’m going to try to go up by increments of 50 🙂  So, I’m hoping to notice a big change in my clutter situation shortly 😀

2013 In 2013 – December 1

Standard

You may be getting tired of my 2013 In 2013 posts, and the good news is that I’m almost done 😀  I have 1655 left to puge, and a daily goal of 53 items.  That’s a huge task, but I’ll continue to work hard and do my very best.  We’re all noticing the improvement at my house, and that’s a giant compliment 😀  Even though I began this as my own little project, knowing that I’m honoring and pleasing my Mike with my efforts is such a good feeling.  This project has had so many benefits, and affects far more people than I ever thought it would 🙂

2013 In 2013 – November 30

Standard

IMG_4710-1Well, it’s the last day of November, and unfortunately I didn’t make my 2013 In 2013‘s Ultimate Challenge goal of purging 1007 items.  I’m not really disappointed though, because I know I’m doing a great job at the rate I’m going, and needing to have a goal to shoot for is just how I roll 🙂  At present, I’ve purged 357 items this month, and I’m good with that 😀  Everything you see here is being donated – some to charity, and some to a local family in need, and that in itself is a wonderful reward!

Mini 2013 In 2013 Goal Realized!

Standard

This evening I reached and surpassed my 2013 In 2013 Mini Challenge goal of 168 items de-owned this month!!!  I’m gong to continue to work really hard to achieve my Ultimate Challenge goal of 1007 items de-owned by the end of this month :dD  I have a long way to go and a lot of work to do, but I’m confident it’ll get done 😀  I’ve been making a lot of donations, which warms my heart, and selling a few things, which helps out the family budget 😀

I’m not a grumpy person, but I’ve noticed that my mood is much lighter, and I didn’t lose my mind when Mike said he invited a friend over, and I only had 20 minutes to tidy up 🙂

This may seem like such a silly thing to blog about, but this is a really challenging issue in my life, and one that has brought me to tears many times.  Challenging myself and being held accountable is really beneficial for me 🙂  So thank you for following me in this, and your words of support, advice and encouragement 🙂  It really means a whole lot!
