Controlling the Chaos Days 240-269

Now is your chance to purge all those items you skimmed over or haven’t gotten to yet.

Please keep in mind this list was created with our home in mind.  Yours may vary slightly, or you may still be working on items from the previous checklist.

This month is all about purging, not organizing, not cleaning, just purging our home of everything we can put into the garage sale before winter.  Originally we planned our garage sale just to clear our home of clutter, but with the huge amount of medical bills we now have I am hoping to use my part of the proceeds to rebuild our emergency fund.  AND I have promised myself that nothing left from the sale will still be here after 7 days.  Seven days gives me enough time to drop it off to the various resale, consignment and donation shops we frequent. 

What are you going to do with your items?  Decide NOW before you just create “another” pile.
