How often do you de-clutter your house and what do you do with the things you no longer want or need?

Whenever it annoys me and I'm in a get rid of **** mood.
We sell anything worth money and give away/donate everything else that's fit to be reused.

Umm, when we moved here 5 years ago maybe? I seriously need to get my tush in gear and do something about it my basement could qualify for an episode of Hoarders.

We moved here 15 months ago and I desperately need to de-clutter. We moved from a 2 bedroom apartment so our families have assumed we have the space to 'store' stuff they aren't using - we've gotten:
- bunk beds
- bedroom set
- couch set
- poker table
- giant office desk
- other random little things

While I appreciate them giving us stuff, it needs to stop! We have no more room, and will eventually want to get our own stuff! And I need to organize our downstairs and the office - they've become dumping grounds. I think it will be a good January project.

I try to get rid of things about twice a year, or as often as is needed... I'm waiting for a bit of a nesting bug to hit before I really get going next though!

The nesting bug never hit me...I wish it had! My house was a disaster when Cameron arrived

I try and to through clothes and toys every 6 months or so, but I do an overhaul of everything when needed. I really need to do one soon! I sell what I can, and donate a lot too.

I am constantly decluttering clothes.We have donated stuff about 5 times since Theo was born. Other things I would say maybe every two months.
