Toss Ten -- the list
OK, years ago I ran across a decluttering "meme" called Toss Ten.
The idea is that each day, you eliminate ten things.
The way I decided to interpret it is that each day, you get to define what a "thing" is. On tough days, you can say "each individual pencil counts as one." On days when you're raring to go, you can say, "this pile of pencils counts as one."
Also, "toss" means: out of your house. Trash, recycle, regift, donate, Freecycle, whatever. Out. Gone. NOT stashed somewhere else. The idea is not to bog the discussion down w/ rhetoric about recycling, and landfills, etc.
So, that's my new goal. I'm going to Toss Ten every single day.
The tough part is going to be donating stuff, bcs I can't really take it somewhere each day. So I'm going to allow myself to count those each day, as long as they LEAVE on the weekend.
And I'm going to come to this thread and tell you what they are.
