Week #4: 111 Things in 1/11

It's the 4th (and final) week of 111 Things in 1/11, hosted by Jenny at Words on Wendhurst! I missed last week, cause I'm lazy... So let's see if I reached the goal of 111 items, as of Week #2, I had 69 items.

2 lampshades
1 drawstring bag that held lime green jersey sheets, which we no longer have
1 printer cord for a printer we also no longer have
1 pair of headphones
1 empty shoebox for shoes I no longer own (I'm sensing a pattern here)
36 red, white, and blue jelly bracelets
6 silver toned bangles
3 plastic bangles
1 blue faux-snakeskin bangles with rhinestones
1 red Lucite bangle
1 stainless Guess watch
2 belt buckles, again for belts we no longer have
2 sets of lace drapes and tiebacks I removed from our rented house and forgot to put back up (why did these even get packed?)
1 lace valance with geese and hearts (also removed from the windows at our rented house)
1 tourist-ey picture frame from Cozumel
2 crappy clear plastic hangers
1 pair of shorts from AE that I will never again fit into
1 crappy kitchen mandolin (my parents got me a new one for my birthday)
1 VHS copy of What Dreams May Come (Have you seen it? If not, you totally should, it's amazing.)
1 winter beenie with skulls on it
1 bottle Aldo synthetic leather protectant
1 pair of gray dress pants from The Limited
3 wine bottles I was saving for Halloween and didn't utilize
4 random Christmas cards from years past
2 awesome rubber dragon/gargoyle toys (unfortunately the rubber dry rotted and is sticking to everything and the stuffing is exploding from them or I would keep them cause they rock)
1 unused composition book that has water damage

147 Items!

Yay! I didn't think I'd make it since I skipped last week, but that just meant I had to break down and get rid of more crap this week...

What have you been editing out of your life?

Congrats on clearing out so much! I desperately need to do this but am waiting until we move back up into our bedroom and watch EVERY SINGLE THING that goes back into the room. We have boxes and boxes in our basement of things we both had during college years and have gotten since then (family boxes) and they all need to be dealt with. I believe some new shelves in our basement are in order to help me organize....

Holy moley - that's quite an assortment. ;)

Oh man, I think you win for having the most random crap! Haha love it! The jelly bracelets took me back to 1988 for a second. Oh and I also save the drawstring sheet bags thinking that I'm totally gonna use it for something someday...and I don't.

Thanks for participating! It's awesome that you were able to get rid of so much extra junk! :-)
