End Notes: 10 Items/Day Giveaway

Rebecca Nappi/End notes are donating the books above to the library as she prepares to prune 10 items per day for 1,000 days.

I have a New Year's resolution that I started in December and have had no trouble sticking to. I am throwing away — or giving away — 10 items each day from my house. Last summer, I did a story on a woman who helps people declutter, and she said the average household in the United States has 100,000 items. Way too many things. So far, nearly a month into this, it's been pretty easy. I started with my bathroom drawers (old eye shadow, lipstick) and the other day, we pruned our cookbook collection and will donate the books to the library. In 1,000 days, I will be decluttered by 10,000 items/Rebecca Nappi, End Notes. More here.

Question: Could you see giving away 10 items per day for an extended period of time?
