    While not part of this specific challeng   I saw something online that was get rid of the number of things for each day of the month. I think if I recycle or donate items by the end of the month thats almost 500 things! Maybe start in the storage closet of long forgotten things!!

      Wow - that's a lot of things! I'm not sure I could come up with that many things if I wasn't counting every item that we recycle?  :)
