I have been battling the war on Clutter for as long as, or maybe longer, than I have been battling with my weight and food issues. This morning I saw a great and inspiring post by MizFit about her own Clutter challenge. (watch the video!!) And because maybe One Challenge Is Not Enough For Me Right now (AM I INSANE??) I am jumping in to this one too. But you know, MizFit is giving away 30 things in 30 days. If I gave away 30 things, it would not even make the slightest dent in my house. So I am going to go for TEN GIVEAWAYS per DAY!! I will do some of these giveaways via Freecyle.org, and a few of them via this blog. Only a few because I’m going to pay for shipping fees, and if I do Freecyle, there’s no cost.
So: today I am giving away, via this blog, THREE ITEMS.
If you want one of them, send me an email with your snail mail address. Tell me which item you want. In the interest of time management, I will not be asking for any fancy challenges, and I will not be doing any random choosery. I will just be sending each item to the FIRST PERSON who jumps in and asks for it, along with their address. I will also NOT be responding individually to people and saying, “You are not the first person.” I will announce the First People in tomorrow’s giveaway, and better luck tomorrow!
Today’s three items: (note: these are all beneficial items, but they are redundant to things I already own)
1. Weight Watchers Complete Food Companion: points values for over 17,500 food items! (UPDATE: TAKEN!)
2. Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Program that Works! by Evelyn Tribole (looks really good but I think I officially binged out on intuitive/mindful eating books! I have way more than I need) (UPDATE: TAKEN!)
3. Making The Cut by Jillian Michaels (Jillian rocks. but we have two of these books in our house, and I sure don’t need more than one!) (UPDATE: TAKEN!)
OK? Ready set, GET THESE OUT OF MY HOUSE PLEASE!! Only one per customer, please. Let the decluttering begin!!

I love to read about decluttering. Over the past few years, we’ve practically emptied our house.
This started when I had to go to Scotland to prepare my Dad’s house for sale after he died. It was an awful experience. Apart from lots and lots of STUFF, he had a 3-piece suite (sofa and 2 matching armchairs) in his ‘best’ room. We donated that to a senior centre.
As the lorry was arriving to take it away, we were taking the cushions off and discovered THREE pairs of trousers he’d been ‘pressing,’ 500 pounds in five pound notes, and rolls of postage stamps!
Now, I know this isn’t your situation at all, but it really is very satisfying to learn how little we all need!
