If you believe that...well...you must be a new reader!
I far-from-partied Saturday.
I decided that I was sick of the condition of my upstairs bonus room/office. It was really beginning to look like a dumpster threw up in there!!
Clothes...some that are too big...some that are too small...some that need to be washed so they can go to consignment...some that need to be washed so they can be put into the new winter rotation...some that need to be shipped off to an expectant mother I know.
Clothes. Can't stand to wash/rotate them. Can't live without 'em.
Paper! Lots of paper. I knew I was behind on filing our personal papers and whatnot, but I had no idea that I had just been throwing stuff into the drawer for a WHOLE YEAR. What a loser! I went through loads of paper. I made a nice 'to shred' box for stuff that had complete account numbers on it, but the rest of it I tossed in the trash. I definitely lightened the load around here. I got rid of a lot of old bills. I'm not sure if I need to keep those things considering that you can access nearly everything online these days. If I've paid it, the check has cleared, what's the point? (If you have some logical reason for me to keep the light bill, let me know before I make my way to the shredder!)
The attic. I even went through the attic to make sure there wasn't much 'junk' in there. I know exactly what size clothes we have in there for the kids to grow into. I have all kinds of tubs labeled and stacked neatly. It's not trashy in there at all. Whew!
I worked Saturday, folks. And I feel much better.
Things I still need to do:
- wash the consignment clothes
- wash the clothes the kids can wear now
- ship off some baby clothes
- box up the majority of Ella's summer dresses
Well, of course I still have the 'normal' chores to do downstairs, but at least when I'm upstairs working I won't feel as if the walls are closing in on me anymore.
What a treat!!
