April=Lots Less Stuff in our House

This month I made large leaps in the declutter challenge! Remember, my goal was to get rid of 234 things in 117 days. As of last month, I was up to 128 items.

I was planning on posting pictures of the big piles of stuff that we got rid of this past month, but my laptop seems to have a virus, so I'm on the older, slower laptop--without the pictures. BUT, here are the before and after pictures of the guest room that I previously showed you...most of the stuff in this room went to Goodwill.

In April, we got rid of an additional 120 items--books, picture frames, magazines, 2 huge duffle bags of Army gear, a broken carseat, an extra baby swing, and the list went on. This brings my total number of items out of my house of to 248, surpassing my goal!

There are exactly 27 days until our move, and we still have some major items to sell/get rid of, including 3 couches, a large television, the bed pictured, and various other pieces of furniture. And I still need to go through our walk-in closet....

I'm getting so excited about our move, and about living more simply with less stuff to maintain.
