The in and out report is an accountability tally of allllll the things I’ve brought into my lil one bedroom apartment and conversely, a list of all the things I took out. My goal is to net 0 or better yet, export more than I import.
In (aka things I bought)
Nude shoes that actually match my skin tone.
Black and white striped midi skirt. been wanting one of these for the longest time. AKA since I pinned this picture on Pinterest.
4 storage boxes
4 Ikea tarp bags.
3 pairs of footie socks. (I count pairs of an item as 1)
A kitten. OK first of all I know she’s not a THING and I didn’t buy her but she does live in my apartment and occupy space and resources
Fitbit (Happy Birthday to me)
Pair of flats for work
Three pairs of earrings *gift
Two t-shirts *gift
Pool cover-up *gift
Total in: 23
OUT (Either taken to Goodwill or the garbage)
One teddy bear
One wire basket
One set of hot rollers. Use a wand instead these days. Much less hassle although far more likely to burn myself. Tradeoffs?
3 headbands. I’ve given up the ghost. I never wear headbands. They drive me bat-shit crazy.
One pair of underwear
Two measuring cups
Two springform pans- I had 4 of these….why? I have literally made one cheesecake in my whole life.
Pair of shorts
3 pairs of pants (two damaged beyond repair. one pair usable but not the right fit)
Total out: 22
Netted items: 1
All in all not bad, but it just illustrates all too well for me: if I don’t conscientiously declutter on a regular basis, I could soon be buried in STUFF.
