Simplicity Sister

My goal this year, inspired by my dear friend Shellie, is to leave something behind in 2016.  As much as I would like it to be 40 pounds of me I leave behind, my plan is to get rid of as much from my house as I can.  I'm going to keep track on this here blog (in theory).

So far this year I have:

  • Cleaned out 10 baking things from my cupboards (pans I don't use, baking tools I have never used)
  • Finished cleaning out Paul's 7 year old clothes
These things I did in 2015, but I'm still counting them
  • Cleaned out the guest room closet, gave away 2 boxes of books, threw away a garbage bag full of stuff, and donated another garbage bag of stuff
  • Cleaned out and donated all of the clothes that are too small for Paul.
  • Gave away 3 garbage bags of clothes/shoes from mine and Jared's closet
On deck:
  • Clean out expired food from my pantry
  • Move stained, ragged towels from bathrooms into rag cupboard.
  • Move the long shelf over to the corner, get rid of the two small bookshelves
