August declutter challenge - day 14

Today I'm getting rid of books. I don't keep anything unless it's definitely an 8 or 9 out of 10, and then only if it touched me in a deep and meaningful way.
So these are going to the secondhand bookstore to exchange for book credits :)
Have you started on your bookshelf yet? I'm betting that there are at least 20 books you can get rid of!
What are you decluttering today?

Although I will have a few days when just a few things are decluttered during this challenge, lol... I look forward to the day, Marcia when FEW things decluttered becomes the norm! :)

I have about 100 books I'd love to get rid of but unfortunally Dh wont let me since they are his. I normally just read books from the library so I can return them and not have them cluttering up the place.

I agree with the above commenter. I'd love to get the point where its ahard to find cluttter.

You should have seen all I decluttered yesterday. Clean closet, gave away 8 pairs of shoes!!! and two big bags of clothes.

You WILL get there, Marcia, trust me – because the truth is that once you get a space decluttered, you just don’t want it messed up with a lot of rubbish again

And Amanda, I have EXACTLY the same problem. But you know what? You can only do what you can do. I make sure my stuff is simplified and my husband knows we are not getting more bookcases, so his books are restricted to one, 4-shelf bookcase :)

Annie, I hope you posted pics because I'm coming on over to have a look LOL
