So many of you are doing great, especially if this is your first 50! Don't fear! It is easy to keep it going. You will most likely find yourself giving it a second thought before you make new purchases. I found that keeping a box of Throw-outs (give away, donate, trash, whatever)is an easy way to keep the momentum. It really has become a habit in this household and we can tell when it is time to do another 50. We actually have not done very well on the garage so far, but it is the summer goal. I am helping my father downsize from a 10 acre farm (with a 3 bedroom house and a shop) to a condo. Oh boy, probably 1,000 things to throw out and we are not done yet! I will never accumulate clutter after this experience.
