2012 in 2012: Week 28

What have we gotten rid of so far in 2012?

We intentionally skipped a post two weeks ago and we decided that once a month is enough for updates. It's getting harder to keep track of things I get rid of. I am loving this challenge because each week I find it easier and easier to let go of things I thought I needed but actually don't!

The diaper disposal thing that I finally sold on craigslist, do you have any idea how long I've been posting it there? Probably two years, maybe even more! A pain? Yes. But imagine the sigh of relief when I actually sell it and there is cash in my hand. It's that moment of serendipity when someone actually finds the item you are selling and wants it. Took me years to sell my wedding gown (last year), I'll always remember the day when a young woman came to try it on and looked gorgeous in it - I was happy to part with it because it took up so much space and it felt great to give her such a good deal! Doesn't happen often, but I say it is worth the effort considering we've made $807 just selling stuff we don't need so far!

This Wednesday I scheduled another donation pick up with! Can't wait to purge some more :)

Moving on:

15 toys (donated)
45 clothing items (donated)
15 broken toy pieces (trash)
1 baby carrier (sold)
1 diaper pail (sold)
2 pillows (donated)

Total = 575 of 2012
as of July 14th

Selling Stuff YTD: made $807


  1. I need to do the same thing with 5 children around here I am sure you can imagine the stuff i need to get rid of.

  2. Good for you. Who doesn't love craiglist?..right.
