December Donation Challenge

Thank you for participating in mine and Dina's Donation Challenge this month. Congratulations to Layali (donation featured at top center). You are the winner of the $25 Visa gift card!

If you didn't participate, that's ok, hopefully seeing this will inspire you to pull out some garbage bags and start decluttering your closets, cabinets, toy bins, and drawers. 

We tackled several areas of our home this month like our art cabinet, my flea market inventory, our closets, and our garage, resulting in nearly 15 bags of stuff and a few pieces of furniture. Good riddance! 

I'm looking forward to starting 2015 with a clean house, a simple wardrobe, and a garage that I can almost park in.

Happy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year! Well............I participated but it was late so I didn't get to enter, darn it! We went through all the clothes and pots/pans/dished and toys etc.... for a total of 5 bags and 3 boxes of donations! I always do thorough cleaning between Christmas and New Years and I have no idea why I choose that time of year to do!

  2. Keep up the great work! De-cluttering is hard especially when you have ideas for them, but using a timed monthly goal is good too (if it hasnt been sold or used in "____" months it has to go). So good seeing you at the November Flea too!
    Happy 2015!

  3. Is it okay to reference some of this on my blog if I include a backlink to this page?Certainly agree with just what you said. Your explanation was certainly the simplest to comprehend. Intellux I tell you, I usually get annoyed any time folks discuss issues that these people obviously dont know about. You were able to hit the nail on the head and spelled out the whole thing with out complication. Perhaps, folks could take a signal. Will likely be back to obtain more.
