Decluttering, Week 1

Carrying on from my earlier decluttering rant, I have decided to copy the 10 things challenge from Simple Organized Life. Simply put, get rid of 10 things every week. To get an easy start, I'm going to cheat a bit and include some things that left us from last Saturday's Yard Sale. Here goes, and I like to start "large":
  1. 1991 Chevy Astro Van (gave it to a friend last night)
  2. Surplus car battery, went with number 1 above (cheating a little, I know)
  3. Sofa from basement rec-room (old 3-legger, out in today's garbage)
  4. Drum Set (put out with the garbage, snatched up by someone while I blinked)
  5. Combination Air-Hockey / Foosball Table (gone in yard sale)
  6. JobMate Laser Level (yard sale)
  7. SportRack 3-bike carrier (yard sale)
  8. Large Suitcase (yard sale)
  9. New (extra) circular saw blades (yard sale)
  10. Carload of clothes, skates etc that did not sell in yard sale (to Value Village)
So there. As they say; the first one is always free/easy. Let's see what I can report next week. Now that I have written this, I'm beginning to see real value in this silly exercise. Imagine the difference getting rid of the above makes in the available space. I think I'm hooked...
