Dayeanu! Great job tossing all those previously used aquarium filters & all the magazines! Woo Hoo!!! Also, the papers.
Saffy -- Good job on all the recycling!!!
March 1st 5 bottles/cans into recycle bag 2 papers into recycle bag
March 3rd 2 bags of trash to outside can 1 bag of recyclable bottles/cans/jars to outside can 8 papers/catalog into recycle bag
170 + 18 = 188 for Round 2!
CD (Yes, I am counting every single one of those darn papers! Paper H*ll! that's what I'm in... It feels good to release even 1 of them. They seem to multiply like rabbits when I'm not looking. I am shooting for more than 3 rounds of 2012 items tossed this year. Last year, I did 3 rounds of 2011... and would like to get totally out of paper h*ll this year!).
Some plastic tubs which I was saving to put food in for the deep freeze and never used and also some chick peas from the freezer which when thawed looked grey and though I suppose they were edible I did not want to.
Three cheers for all of us! Papergrace, Rory, Cando, Saffron! We are doing great!
I have thrown away 12 things - papers & junk. I have put some cups in the give away. One set of dishes (for 12). 96 dishes. Maybe I won't count them until they are actually gone. I think that's a good plan. That way I won't get complacent about them!
1,648 - 12 _____ 1,636 left to go

Due to having left things out exposed to the elements for far too long during a long down time & therefore rusted/ruined/broken/cracked I tossed out what had turned into yard squalor: 2 bow saws 2 large thermal coffee cups 1 clock radio 2 plastic buckets 1 rubbermaid garbage can (I never expected that to crack to pieces too!) _____ Total=8
Typically I have a hard time tossing things, but mother nature expedited this process for me. Congrats to all that are effectively tossing out their items!
