(First post on this topic, /waves madly)
I've been clearing out stuff for a little over a year now, in preparation for buying a house (went under contract on a condo on Friday! Yay!!!!) As of today, I've donated 620 pounds of stuff to Goodwill/Value Village/Buy Nothing, and trashed 91 pounds of junk. My realtor called me this afternoon and told me about a family that lost everything in a fire yesterday, so 80 pounds of stuff (sheets, towels, dishes, clothes, kitchen stuff, misc) is going to them. My goal is to try to eliminate 1000 pounds of stuff from my apartment before I move. 209 pounds left, and about 6 weeks to go!
