Cleaning Out/Getting Organized


 The 2016 Clean Out Challenge (where we are going to purge our homes of 2016 items this year!)

How is it going?  As of the end of January you should’ve thrown out roughly 185-190 items to be on track.  I’ll admit, I am behind on this one.  But it won’t be hard to catch up when I start going through closets and such.
