Or how messy?
We decided to do a BIG purge on the boys bedrooms. J has out grown a LOT of his toys and C need to pass down some things to J.
I like to give them the option of what goes.
J really got into the clean out. He kept saying that he was making room for Christmas presents!
After 6 large trash bags and a 3 foot stack of games and puzzles; we were finished with the toys. The boy decided he was too old for playdoh, only needed 17,000 Match box cars and was over dinosaurs. I think I shed a few tears carrying the bags from his room, he is my baby. But a happy dance soon followed, because everything is SO clean!
We are just getting to the clothes. Thank goodness for my nephews. We sent 4 large bags of hand-me-downs to them yesterday. Is it wrong that I don't send the really nice items to my nephew between C and J? I always feel like I don't get the good stuff back or its totally worn out. He is so rough on clothes.
The boys think we "need to have a yard sale and make some cash". I think NOT. A nice drive by at Good Will is in Paint boy's future.
ETA- I got inspired and cleaned out my closet again! 2 more trash bags of clothes to donate. All of it Fall and Winter. I figured if I don't want to wear it 5 months after the last opportunity, I am not going to want to wear it. More chances to buy new clothes!
