Well, more left the house on Saturday. Mostly old program discs for the computer, a few more cords and such.

The desk is pretty much cleared now. There might be a few more items to go yet though.

So far this year 345 items have left the house or been recycled. Hopefully even more will be disappearing very soon.

Now we are up to 363 items gone. Hubby cleared out the sheds and found a great many items to take to the second hand store, and a few that could be taken to the recycle bins. Slowly, slowly things are going.

386 items have left my home. They either went to one of two second hand stores in my small city, or were recycled. Hopefully more will be gone by the end of the month.

It has been awhile since I posted in this thread. It is a good thing I keep track of all my decluttering numbers in my daily diary.

As of the 11th I have rid the house of 403 items. I may just reach the 500 mark again this year. Though it is getting harder and harder to let loose of things.

The first year I started decluttering I managed to get 1000 items out of the house no trouble at all. The next year was about 800 items. And now the following 2 years I am having trouble reaching the 500 item marks. I will still keep plugging away, as I am sure that by next year some of the items I couldn't part with will no longer mean as much or anything at all to me.
