I've become an unreliable blogger. It's been a month since my last post. And...nothing new really. But more donations going out the door. This is a good thing!

Here's what I've done:

two car loads to the Goodwill
recycled a box of old school papers
cleared out two bags of my clothes that I don't like (will go to Goodwill soon)
reorganized the pantry and added a few kitchen things to the donation bag

If you're reading this, consider doing a Flylady 27 fling boogie--find 27 things to toss, donate or recycle.

What a great idea from the FlyLady!

I often do what I'd refer to as the "recycle roundup". It's where I go from room to room picking up receipts, scraps of paper, empty Coke cans, etc,... anything that can go in the recycle bin. It's amazing how 2 minutes of my time makes a world of difference in keeping our house clutter free!

Capital Junk said...

Fantastic! "freecycle" is great too! Check it out on our blog I think it's great that you have taken the time to go through your items and donate so much to the goodwill! I am sure there are many people out there who will be enjoying your items (especially with winter approaching!) Good for you!

Recycling and donating are great by-products of uncluttering. People should try your tips they are helpful.

The 27 fling boogie sounds fun.

Hope you are going well with your decluttering this year.

Often hoarding gets so out of hand that you just cant get it under control anymore. I have seen homes filled up to the ceiling junk. Keep up the good work helping people find ways to clean it all up.

I think you are very brave posting about this.

I do hoarding cleanup for a living and I know that most of my hoarding clients would love someone to talk to and relate to.

Keep up the good work and if you ever need a cleanup service you can look us up at

I have struggled with hoarding for many years. I certainly didn't hoard to the level that I have read that some people hoard, but I would typically take a year each time I moved house to go through the endless bags off stuff that I had moved from the previous house, and it has made life really difficult. I have pretty much managed to completely overcome hoarding now. Here is a post I have posted recently about this:

Linda Martin said...

My mother's hoarding has gotten out of control in the last few years, and at this point, I am not sure what to do. It's so encouraging to read your post and see that you've been able to get rid of all that stuff. It's amazing! I'm not sure what to do for my mother, but I am trying. There's some great information about cumpulsive disorders at, and I'm trying to use some of the methods there with my mohter. But it has not been easy. Hope your success is continuing!

Fly Lady is a wonderful voice to have in your head while you are decluttering. Good to know she's helping so many!

If you have a relative who hoards, I think Dr. Zasio's new book, The Hoarder in You, could be a helpful read. I am enjoying it though my clutterbug relatives are now gone. I am still dealing with their stuff and her advice is helpful today.

Rachel Papworth @greenandtidy said...

Well done. And thank you for all your posts. Your blog is brave and inspiring.

I help people all over the world declutter and create homes they love ( and I want to reassure you that you are not alone. There are so many themes in what you write that I see with my clients.

Keep up the great work.

What a brilliant blog bursting with solutions.A lot better than mine. I don't think we have the same attitude towards hoarding in the UK yet.
May i privately email you regarding an opportunity.

Hi there,
I have read your whole blog with such interest as in between reading your blog I am in the middle of decluttering my house.
I feel so much better with each box/bag that leaves my house and can't wait till I reach the end of the main journey!
I hope you are doing well mate and thank you so much for sharing your story.

Awesome! It's such a great feeling to donate your items, and an even better feeling to regain some space back!
