I'm Joining PU!!!

PU or Purgers United that is!
Every year I say I'm going to 'downsize' but seems like way more comes in then goes out! 
This year I am joining my friend at 
Old Grey Mare to commit to purging 100 items!
I'm showing my first 25 items here.  
If (really 'if') you see anything you would like then email me and it's yours for the price of postage.
Otherwise all this is going in a yard sale! 
Here we go!
#1 is 8 napkin rings #2 glass cup #3 4 milk glass bowls #4 pink divided dish 
#5 blue divided dish, #6 2 restaurant cups, #7 Pyrex bake a round, #8 two coffee decanters in a holder
#9 is 3 egg cups, #10 is 2 bunny egg cups, #11 is two glass bread plates, #12 mouse cheese shaker
#13,14,15 random chotskies, #16 apple cream and sugar set
#17 tiny little pitcher, #18 creamer, #19 2 nut crackers and 1 pick, #20 8" stoneware square baker (never used)
#21 old made in Italy powder box, #22,23 Rachael Ray 30 minute meals one & two, #24 Sandra Lee Semi-homemade cookbook and #25 glass bowl

Yay for me!  That's 25 items I'm committing to leave my home. 
 Only 75 more to go! 

Wishing you JOY,

Oh, Go PU! I need to do this too...of course I am looking at everything you you've got, like I need it, but I need to be on your end. I might need to do this with you guys! This is a great idea!

LOL I used to have the dishes that went with the napkin rings and I laughed out loud when I saw Sanda Lee.
YAY us! YAY PU! I just photographed 15 for my next group. Feels good :D

Susan said...

Great idea, Linda. You are a riot. I need to post 1000 items. ha! Great job. I looked at everything but NO! I'm not going to take anything. Thank you so much. Susan

What a clever idea!
I declutter naturally as I am clumsy..I keep numbers down through regular breakages.Now, if you had three wine glasses to make a full set of my favourite design...yup,I downsized three by accident (but not all at the same time).

I just got rid of another bag full. Good for you, Linda. I bet you will find it hard to stop once you hit 100. Carry on...have fun! Deb

What a super idea. I need to join this campaign too. I could definitely get rid of 25 items. Hugs, Marty

Chatty Crone said...

Haha everyone is like you and wants to purge themselves. I do like the bunnies thank you - so do you have any salt and pepper shakers coming up? Everyone please know I know Linda and she wouldn't mind me asking!

Hartwood Roses said...

What a great idea! Count me in, too. I should get a great head start when I finish my closet tomorrow and can finally reload my my stuff into it. I absolutely plan to leave out everything that I don't wear regularly or the few items I'm keeping for sentimental reasons ... not many of those ... I'm determined not to crap up my new closet.

Kathe said...

PU is a great idea! I've been doing naturally since I have time on my hands :-) I am resisting but I do love the napkin rings!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

I need to check PU out. I started my decluttering/purging long ago and it has been put on the back burner for a while now. Hopefully this Spring, I will get on the band wagon again.

I know how hard it is to do this, congrats! Stay strong and you'll make 100:@)

Cheri said...

Hey Linda, if no one has laid claim to the sq. stone ware pan, I know one of my daughters would love it. They all love the stone ware. Let me know and I could get it from you next time I see you. Are you going to Joyce's in Feb.?

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

What a great idea. I made a Goodwill run in early December; I should have waited.

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

There are some thing I am not in love with that I could part with too. At least if you part with 100 items you won't feel so bad picking up a few new things.


Hey Linda,
I dropped off 2 large bags and one 1 box of "stuff" today at the thrift store! I'm a PU too! This is the year to GET IT DONE!
I'll think I'll have more than 100 items! LOL!

Vonlipi said...

Is number 7 still up for grab?

I've been lokking for one for quite a while...

Let me know,



Maureen said...

I made the same commitment last January. After purging about 30 things I couldn't take the strain! Maybe this year.

the cape on the corner said...

oh my goodness, that's a lot of things to part with! i just went to 2 thrift stores earlier in the week, and though it was super crowded at both, there was nothing that i wanted. i thought january was the time for thrift store shopping as people make similar resolutions to your purge. maybe spring time?
