Day 13: Swords Forfeited- Lil' Son Helps Declutter

I took this weekend off for the challenge, mostly because of Mother's Day, partly because I was getting a little intimidated. Starting new habits or just making changes in general is not easy for me. And I guess I started feeling like I might not make it 31 days doing this! Can someone relate?
I did manage to wrangle up a week's worth of newspapers late Friday. Love, love the Wall Street Journal. I feel smart after reading an article or two. But 6 papers a week can be too much clutter. I just remind myself it's also online.

So, refreshed from a nice and relaxing weekend, I'm ready to take on the challenge again. My son surprised me and got 9 items together to give away. He usually has a problem letting toys go. Of course I didn't help with convincing him to keep a couple of toys. I had to leave the room before doing any more damage.
What I really hope to get through is cleaning the fridge and freezer like I planned this weekend. How about you? Are you doing the Clutter-Busting Challenge?

My success stories in decluttering so far:
Day 11-12: Challenge break- no post
Day 10: Satisfaction Gusrantee on Cosmetics at CVS = Easy Returns!
Day 9: More Amazon Movies For Trade-In & Toiletries to Give Away
Day 8: Giving Away Tomato Plants
Day 7: Get Paid For Old DVDs with Amazon Trade-In
Day 6: Decluttering Crafts and Preschool Game- 15 items
Day 4 and Day 5 Decluttering: Box Tops, Boxes and Old Timer - 31 Items!
Day 3: Threw Out Old Meds and More Bottles- 30items
Day 2: Cans and Empty Bottles- 27 items
Day 1: Give Magazines Away for Mother's Day! 45 items
