I have been doing great on f/v most days I have been having 5-7. I am about half way there on decluttering (10 items) and should be there by the end of tomorrow I think.

I don't think I had even 3 veggies for the entire weekend! I'm very disappointed in myself....

Wasn't home much to do any decluttering. Did clean off part of my desk though incase my computer guy wanted to take my tower today (think the kids being home scared him off though)

Another long day today, but then I'm off tomorrow so it should be good!!!

Still got in all days of fruits and veggies although I will say on Sat. I had to have an evening snack of fruit to get there. Getting rid of the usual junk mail and things like that and took 2 bags to the clothing dumpster, 1 to my sister's, I have one to go to Salvation Army and I have a bag started for the marching band for Kris, so much more to go through though. Hoping everyone is off to a great start for this week.

I'm in on this one. I'm using my new immersion blender to make fruit smoothies every morning, so I'm getting a good start on the f/v part.

Clothes clutter is a big problem for me. I bring stuff to the donation box pretty regularly, but I have so many different sizes of clothes depending on what weight I am... some of you can probably relate to that.

I'm going to run this challenge for my space at work as well. It's a mess!!

I'm getting very close to my goal weight after losing over 75 lbs. so I have several sizes of clothes to cull through and toss one way or another. That should help me with the 20 things per week. And of course, tossing all the catalogues and charge card applications that come here weekly will be a cinch. Eating 3 veggies should be my goal. The fruit part is easy for me but it is harder for me to get three servings of vegetables. I guess I'll start with the same goal as you all and see if I can up it to just three veggies at some point.

And as for selling stuff? Heck yes! If you can clean out your house AND get money for it...more power to you!! I wish I were organized enough to do that! Jo

Woops well I did mean 20 a week :) but if you have 20 a day and the motivation I say go for it. It's hard to do but when you look back at the clean space it's such a freeing feeling for me!

Junk mail counts? Excellent! I'm in!

Seriously, in the last ten years I have had every person in my family older than I am, pass away, and since none of them ever threw anything away, it's all stashed here somewhere (big house plus two barns = lots of stashing area.) Twenty Things a day for a month is...um...60 Things? No! 600 Things!!! Wow, that's a lot of Things, but I'm in.

I lug most of the Things out to the Salvation Army, but the really nice ones (my late husband's suits, for example) I sell on consignment at The Key in Cazenovia. I also have been putting books on Amazon (sold over 100 so far) and sell the occasional Thing on eBay. It still counts if it gets sold rather than donated or tossed, right?

Three fruits and vegetables a day is easy, so I'm in for that one too. (I'd ask if Bloody Marys count as a vegetable, but I don't want to set a bad example...)

I just did a ton of cleaning so I don't know if i'll hit the 20 a day but i'll give it a shot :) Fruits and veggies on the other hand - i'm totally down with. The 3 a day is nice because breakfast/lunch/dinner.

The salvation army on Erie blvd is my closest point of donation and it's so easy to get rid of the items I just don't use anymore.

I so need to declutter so I am in for that one for sure. That is my goal for the year to spend at least 1 hour per week doing extra cleaning and decluttering. I will save some items for the band again this year.

3 fruits and veggies should be a no brainer so I am in on that as well. I have that for today now before dinner.

Okay....let's get this party started!!!!

Lots of folks are concentrating on de-cluttering/organizing/cleaning from what I can see so lets make that the first part of our January challenge:

Throw out or donate 20 things per week (going kinda high because they could be as simple as junk mail)


And for the healthier us side of the challenge:

Eat atleast 3 fruits/veggies per day (I know real goal should be 5, but let's start off "easy")


It's easy to set simple goals like these and you feel good when January 31st rolls around and you've accomplished them!!!



IF you happen to be looking for a good place to donate items you want GONE....please consider an option near & dear to my heart....the ESM Marching Band's Annual Garage Sale. The money raised goes directly to the kids' annual trip. I'll even make arrangements to come get it from you!!! But no matter where you donate them, some person's life will be all the better because of it!!!

Post here how you do!!!
