of course if you can find more than 5 items,
by all means
do so!

These are just ideas to get you started
so, for example
if you no longer have kids in the house
skip the 'kids toys'
and find 5 of DH's toys to donate :giggle1:

you get the idea!

Oh my! Are you going to referee all the fights that could start? :hysterical:

How about declutter 5 of OUR toys? (crafts, etc)

Not really a declutter, but I got 2 pineapple and 4 cantaloupe cleaned and in the freezer...I will get stuff this afternoon while the kids nap, but the fruit had to be done first off. :frog2:

Thanks for the inspiration!!! I started my task of cleaning 5 things off a surface(choose the kitchen table) and ended up cleaning off the whole thing which amounted to well over five items gone (more like 25 or 30 pieces of paper gone) and my DH is soooo happy!!
Now I am looking forward to the day to remove five items off my desk because some of the kitchen table items ended up there!

There's nothing old in my pantry, so I cleaned out my closet. 5 items to to donate bag.

I've been cleaning out my cupboards a lot recently so don't thin there is much more to go (I threw out probably 40 jars and cans of unopened stuff that was out of date! UGH!) but I did clean some stuff out of my drawer at work today. I sorted out a bag of food and HBA stuff to take to a client tomorrow, so, i'll count that for today's challenge! I think in place of the toy challenge, since I don't have kids, I will clean 5 items out of my car. It's a pig pen...

I actually found a few items to throw out of the fridge last night. An unopened package of hummus and unopened package of wholly guacamole...neither cheap...sigh...wasting food makes me crazy...

Today is garage day...got rid of a stack of old inserts, moved some of the stockpile into the house, and picked up a bunch of stuff off the floor.
