As promised, the big clean-out began a couple of days ago. I decided to start in the kids’ room, simply because it is a constant battle to keep that room clean. Part of it comes from three kids sharing one room, and the rest comes from having too much stuff.
Their room took me an entire day to do, and I hadn’t even made it to their drawers before I ran out of time. I finished those up this morning. I also rearranged their furniture, so now I need to move the pictures on their walls.
In all, I removed a big box of toys, a full bag of garbage and a full bag of clothes. Catheryn still had three pairs of 3T pajamas in her drawers. She currently wears size 6-7…
I forgot to take pictures before I started cleaning, but trust me, you didn’t want to see it anyway. This is what is looks like now.
I also got the hall closet cleaned out. It didn’t take nearly as long to do, but I was still amazed at some of the things I found in there. This is what it looked like before I started.
New and improved, it looks like this.
I still have a long way to go, but I think I’m off to a pretty good start.
