Declutter Challenge

I am participating in another blogs declutter challenge for 2011. My goal in the challenge declutter 365 items from my home in 2011. Declutter in this case does not include stuff I throw away as that is trash and should be there anyway. This includes stuff I give away.

One of the ways I give stuff away is through Freecyle.

So far I have given away 13 items:
-set of spoons, forks, & butter knives (counted as 1 item)
-plastic tray for silverware
-grapevine wreath
-Wii baseball bat
-120 halloween treat bags (never used)
-boys size 7 pants
-boys size 8 pants
-boys size 8 dress pants
-Math ages 5-8 workbook (used, but still lots of pages left)

I have these items on Freecycle right now as well:
-Rose The Body Shop room spray
-Set of 8 postcards from National Museum of American History
-Math grade 5/6 workbook (used, but still lots of pages left)
-Pampered Chef promotional materials

If you have never heard of Freecycle, the description of Freecycle is:
"Welcome! The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 4,894 groups with 8,263,622 members around the world. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by local volunteers (them's good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your community by entering it into the search box above or by clicking on 'Browse Groups' above the search box. Have fun!"

I have been giving and getting stuff for years. I love it.

Have you heard of Freecycle? Have you given away stuff or received stuff?

I don't know if I've ever gotten anything from Freecycle, but I've done plenty of giving away!

I could have used the forks and spoons for RE office
