Ok! Time to report on week 6 of The 365 Declutter Challenge. This week I was mad at myself because I hate it when I waste food. I did a quick clean out on the refrigerator and came out with this:
And about 1/3 of this bag of trash is food waste. Grrrr.
Here’s a jar of caramel the kids found that had a best by date of May 2008!
And then I pulled some old baby food out of the pantry. It makes me so mad that I wasted this!! I could have given it to someone else before it expired, or used it in baking or cooking.
Other items include old vacuum bags that we don’t have a need for anymore, a hat and boots that are too small, and a pair of jeans. I think I attempted to get rid of these jeans once before and they stuck around anyway for some reason. So I didn’t include them in my “official” count.
I just counted all of the fridge food waste as 6, plus everything else gave me 19 clutter items out the door for week 6!

And if you are in the mood for something more Valentines-y, read about my Love by Decluttering post from a couple of years ago.
Fill me in on what’s going on with you! Do you have a certain type of clutter that makes you mad?
