I have been inspired

A couple of weeks ago I finally decided on a New Year's Resolution. I have actually done quite well with it, getting rid of more than my plan of 10 things a day. I would love to be able to say I'm making huge progress, but I started with the easiest, most obvious things and am not quite as proud of myself as I could be. I've been purging closets and dressers, and have taken 5 trash bags filled with clothes to Goodwill. I *am* proud that they actually have made it to Goodwill, and I'm also proud that I only set aside a few things to sell on eBay. I still have to list them, of course, so we'll see how long this pile of clothes sits next to my desk. My guess is that they will become next year's New Year's Resolution. *sigh* It's a start though, right?

I have a every day must read blog that has truly inspired me, A Slob Comes Clean. I am hoping she'll continue to inspire me every day. Maybe I'll even become as brave as she is and post pictures! If you haven't checked out her blog, do so. She's fantastically honest. Through her blog, I've discovered a decluttering challenge over at The Finer Things In Life which I think I'm finally determined enough to join. I'll keep you updated on my progress!


  1. I just 'found' your blog and am in the process of decluttering my entire home so I am very anxious to look at the sites you've blogged about!

  2. Thanks for linking to me! I'm very honored.

  3. Five trash bags of clothes?! That's an amazing start! Thanks for joining in. :)

  4. Thanks Amy! Nice of you to call it amazing, but we're a family of six, and the amount of clothes in this house is overwhelming. I barely scratched the surface, lol!!

    You're very welcome Nony!
