2012 in 2012: Week 16 & Earth Day

What have we gotten rid of so far in 2012?

It is becoming clear that at the rate I am going, I will not get to 2012 things by the year's end. I need major cleaning and sessions, but you know what? We are so busy with life, I don't think spring cleaning is happening. Do you feel that way at all?

I'm starting a new job May 1st, I like to spend time outdoors as much as possible with Baby E and Baby T, preparing healthy meals is a priority. A clean house? Not so much. I know that getting rid of stuff will make it easier to keep clean, that's the idea. I have many excuses and even if I don't get to 2012 things, what will matter to me is that I didn't slave over it and I made more important things a priority - like my kids!

Too many toys, too much clothes, and I'm slowly learning to let go of anything that is to any degree unneeded. S.l.o.w.l.y....

It may come as a surprise to you if you're new here that we do not actually celebrate Earth Day or make anything of it. The mission of Eco-Babyz is not to help you save the planet or anything, it is to help you make healthy choices for your family. True, our planet would be a lot healthier if everyone made healthy choices for the sake of their kids and loved ones. If you're celebrating though, have a blast!

Moving on:

50 broken toys/pieces (trash/recycled)
1 baby sling (sold)
1 designer hospital gown (sold)

Total = 193 of 2012
as of April 21st

Selling Stuff YTD: made $330

  1. You DON'T celebrate Earth Day?! Just kidding, neither do we. Not on a mission to save the Earth, just to be good stewards of our family and the resources we've been given. I think I should jump on the 2012 giveaway this year. Do you count each item of clothing?

    1. :) I do count each item of clothing and each toy/piece unless it is a toy of several pieces, then I count it as one. I don't think I'll get there! But it feels great getting rid of too much stuff in our house!
