    Only during Covid will I waste my time doing this. I want to clear $10 per book. In the last batch only 1/3 sold. I do not relist them, I move that book to the pile I am taking to the local bookstore.

    All proceeds go to our Park conservancy, that is my main motivator.

    What a great way to declutter, Iris Lilies!

    I've been a bit stalled because work is busy, but I am having an (outside, small, socially distanced) birthday party for my daughter today, and people may need to walk through the first floor to get to the bathroom (where the window will be open for ventilation). It's a good motivator to deal with clutter on the first floor.

    Yesterday, I did an hour decluttering the living room. New total: 23.5.

    Well, I am officially out of patience with selling on eBay. When this last batch of sales finish I’m done. There are a few more books I could flog on eBay but I’m not going to bother. Looking forward to next Friday when I can load the final batch into my car and drop them off at the bookstore. I will be done with Book decluttering.

    Now that my ex husband can’t buy the house we have a lot of things to sell such as all the outside furniture, patio heater, gardening items, outside equipment, etc. So having a sale the end of March.

    Wow, Teacher Terry, that sounds like a big project. But maybe it will be lucrative!

    I did two hours of decluttering yesterday in preparation for my daughter's birthday party. The big successes were I cleaned out a corner of one of the kitchen counters where clutter had accumulated, got rid of a lot, and set up my new bread box which solves one storage problem. I also decluttered my daughter's art table which had gotten pretty bad - piled with papers.

    Between this week's decluttering and my daughter's birthday, our recycling bin is full. Hopefully, some of my sweet neighbors will let me use some space in theirs!

    New total: 25.5.

    Glad you are still making great progress. We made 550 from the sale. Also made another 200 selling furniture items online. We also have been putting stuff outside for free and have gotten rid of a ton of stuff. We finished and I am so glad.
