Tackle It Tuesday: Out, out, out!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

I'm in that flinging & decluttering mood again... last week I left a huge pile for the trash collectors, and this week I might just do the same. Yesterday's assignment at Home Sanctuary was to fill one bag with trash, and that finished up the stray Christmas toy boxes & other little clutter. Today my goal is to get several things OUT of my house:
  • THRIFT STORE: I have three trashbags full of clothing to donate that have been sitting in the garage for months, literally. Today, they go!
  • POST OFFICE: I have two swaps and one book for PaperBackSwap due out today. I have the items collected on the desk- today I need to package them and get them on their way. I also have one Christmas card that came back just a few days ago with the wrong address- I need to write a note to that cousin and resend it to the proper address.
  • LIBRARY: Somewhere in this house is a children's movie that belongs to the library. We've got to find it and get it returned- we're out of renewals and it's due soon.
  • PARENTS' HOUSE: I have a couple of my mom's tupperware-type containers here from the holidays. I need to return them. (OK, I might keep these one more day since my youngest sister is coming over tommorow and she could easily take them home with her.)
  • AT LEAST ONE 27-FLING BOOGIE: Flylady's fun way to declutter. I'm doing at least one today!

Luckily, all of those destinations (except for my parents' house) are within about five miles of my house, so we won't have to spend too much time in the car.

That's what I'm tackling today- what about you? Head on over to 5 Minutes for Mom to share your tackle and cheer on others!


  1. I have some things I need to take to Goodwill as well as two boxes of books to donate to the library. I just haven't taken the time to do it, I'll be so much less cluttered once I do though!

  2. Sounds like you have a great plan for today. Good luck with all of it. Oh, and I'm a flybaby too :)
    We are tackling our basement (ugh!) This week we tackled one corner "room" down there.

  3. I have a big box of my daughter's old clothes that I need to ship off to my niece. It does feel good to get those things out of the way, and out of sight!

  4. I need to get into a decluttering mood. My house could definately use it. :0)

  5. It's funny -- we slog through the holiday season getting more and more stuff, and all we want to do in the new year is get rid of stuff. I'm with you.

  6. Great Tackle yo go! Come check out my awesome tackle. VROOOOM VROOOM!

  7. I hope you got everything out that you wanted to get out!

  8. How inspiring--I'm ready to declutter. Although, the frugal-scavenger in me is dying to dig through your trash.

    Clearly I have a problem...

    Thanks for your thoughts over at my blog. It's fun to pay you a visit!
