Now that I have encouraged you to Eliminate, Eliminate, Eliminate I thought I would show you that I “walk the talk”.
Today I purchased the plants in the photo above. Plants bring so much beauty and life to a home, and I thoroughly enjoy them.
This stack of stuff is leaving the house today– No room for things we are not using.
Have you purged anything this week? Share in the comments. 🙂

Purging my clothes this week…still not done yet but getting there! Have 3 other bags of clothes from the other members of our family…I have one filled so far…did my closets now my drawers are next! Taking them to a donation place when I am finished!
Good job Kathy Lynn! 🙂

Ooooh, I’d take the Lincoln Logs off your hands! 🙂 I have a stack of books to go out too and some toys that we no longer need.
Sorry Margaret–I have to give them back to the lady who gave them to us. 🙂

Your plants look pretty!
Thanks Mary Ann. They make me happy. 🙂
Books are one of my biggest clutter items. I love to read and have numerous cookbooks. Not ready to part with the cookbooks yet but I did take 20 paperbacks to my SIL’s hair salon this past week. I’m continuing to work on books this week as our church is having a book sale to help build a faith library for everyone to use.
Now, I just need to begin to use my kindle more including for down loading library books. Would be a HUGE clutter buster!!
We have a lot of books too and it’s hard to get rid of them because I think that we might read them again. Good for you for getting rid of the paperbacks. 🙂

I certainly did. Four large bags of clothing and shoes my family no longer wear. I am donating them to a local thrift store that gives almost all of profit received to a local children’s hospital. My rule of thumb is if I buy something new I must donate something at the same time. Out with the old in with the new! This way it is not such a hassle to purge all at once. I accumulate some here and there and when I get a resonable amount it is donated.
That is a great plan Melissa. It is so much easier to deal with the clutter a little at a time instead of waiting for it to build up.
