Big Give Count & A Sneak Peek

My final count from yesterday's Cleaning Out the Clutter challenge was 47 items gone!!!  I'm excited to once a gain be making progress towards simplifying my home.  So far, I've given 117 things away so far this year!  I going to attempt to hit 300 before the end of April, so stay tuned and keep me accountable.

I attacking the kitchen next, and here are some before pictures of what I'll be cleaning:

As you can tell, I really needed this cleanout!  It is humbling to expose your my cluttered home, but in a good way, because it gives me incentive to keep cleaning.  I also watched two full episodes of Hoarders on A&E online last night, just to give myself more perspective on what can happen when I refuse to let go of my stuff!

If you haven't checked your mail yet, you might be surprised like I was to find a free $5 gift card from Walmart.  I don't know what I did to get this, but I'm hoping they do this often!

Pray for me as I continue to tackle the kitchen!  Laughing all the way...

Great for you!!! I got the free $5 too. Glad for it and will apply mine for some shampoo, as the bottle is almost empty!!!

So good seeing and visiting with you last evening, even if just for a few short minutes!!!
