52-Week Pickup Challenge - Weeks One and Two

Inspired by 365 projects, like Synthsis' "Minus 365" over at his blog, Just Another Statistic, I have decided to challenge myself.  Now, most of these projects require you to do something every day, but I know myself far too well to attempt that.  I am going to post weekly about something I've done to declutter, organize or otherwise improve my home.  I may also post about something healthy I've done for myself, since I truly need to get in better shape. We'll see about that!

So, for last Week 1, I listed and sold a jewelry armoire that I've had for years and really don't use anymore.

For this Week 2, I have listed one of two vintage stereo consoles I own! Yes, two. Sigh....you vintage lovers know how this comes about. First, you're at an estate sale and spot a bargain too good to pass up, then months later when you're cruising around Craigslist for no good reason, you find one you like even more. Well, this is the one I decided to list, so wish me luck on getting it out of here this week!  I feel like I'm off to a good start....with a long, long way to go.

  4. Kudos to you for the de-cluttering charge! It's so easy to acquire things (as you pointed out) but so much harder to get rid of them. I love hearing these concrete steps you're taking, and I know you'll feel better with each thing you can allow out the door.

  6. Look at you go! It feels good to get rid of things, doesn't it? Though, if we lived near you, we'd help you get rid of that stereo. :)

  8. What's this??? You own two...? And you never told me? I'm disappointed in you. However, I love your consoles. Nice to see that you've been posting.
