Simplify 2008 - The Results

So, how've I done in my decluttering this year? I've kept a record and I think it's a good start, although I still have a long way to go. You can see that I kind of lost momentum toward the end of the year. (And we won't even talk about the weight loss attempt.) But progress is progress, and, with the excesses of the Christmas season behind me, I'm ready to resume the decluttering process. While I don't know that I'm ready to go as far as this fellow, I do dream about being unfettered by STUFF. Wish me luck!
