August declutter challenge - day 1

Updated AGAIN to add
I tried a new Mr Linky so it is fixed :)

It's HERE!!! I feel like I've waited FOREVER for this day but it's been only 3 weeks :)

Welcome to the new readers and thanks for joining in.

If you're not familiar with the August Declutter Challenge, read about it over on the top of the sidebar ----->>

Don't get overwhelmed thinking about the whole month - start with ONE THING today.

Okay? It's not that bad - really, I promise :)

I'll go first and then it's your turn...

I bought this red handbag in 2001 and it has been one of my favourites ever since.

Do you know why?

Because of its texture. I don't quite know what it's made of but this bag has a deliciously smooth, cool feel. Lovely!

I'm a very tactile person - that means I like to touch things. If you meet me in real life, don't be freaked out if I touch things and go, "mmmmm" ;)

I'm letting it go because it's not quite wide enough for all the things I carry around with me.

Bye-bye, gorgeous red handbag from Truworths.

What did you declutter today?

In our room remodel (new furniture) I have thrown away so many things I cannot count! Or decluttered :)... seriously. There has been major decluttering going on here.

Did you get it?

Good morning, Marcia! Well, the declutter challenge has begun at my house!!!! Really one item a day is SO doable! And at the end, you have 31 things that are no longer cluttering up your space! :) I am in for the long haul!

Hi Marcia do we post next Friday our pic of 7 things or daily??? I have decluttered two bags full of clothing today.

Diane said...

No Mr. Linky I can see I would love to know and be able to see what others are decluttering.
thanks Diane

Marcia said...

Diane, the daily posting is optional but if you can do it, I'd recommend that.

To be entered for the weekly prizes starting next Friday, you have to post one blog with your 7 items.

You could always do it now and set to publish next week :)

Marcia, thanks for starting this challenge. It is just the motivation I need to get this place whipped in shape.
