All of the laundry was thrown in baskets on the basement floor. It’s clean, but the mess..I couldn’t find anything, especially baby clothes. I just cant seem to grasp the amount of clothes we own and wear. But I brought them up and decided to tackle it all at once.
Ahhhhhh, my eye twitches when I see this…so I grabbed a garbage bag to put in the items that no longer fit. Oooooff to donation!!!
It felt so good to put this pile I the bag and I went back for more…
Pile #2 baby blankies, shirts, pants, dresses. A little bit of everything. Then there was a little bit more…
The days of matching pajamas are over for my boys. They like their own things now. Makes me sad as I see the reindeer pajamas which make me want to dig them back up. I figured two and a half 13 pound bags was the possible limit. But then, there was more. All I could think is…
This is ridiculous!
I was done taking photos, my brain is in a coma from all of the folding. Ahhh!
I have filled the 3rd bag. The boys are growing, I’m shrinking. Baby weight is almost all off. Yay, ME!
But guess what? All of that is going to be out if my house. What do you say guys?
Want to go Binge Laundering?
I just love his face… This is his new look when he gets spooked, sad, blowing raspberries or is thinking.
Anyway, I had baby things I was going to give my sister for her baby, but due to her loss, I still had them.
I had a swing, pack and play, a bassinets and a diaper genie. All just taking space in my house.
I really didn’t have the time or energy to be lugging things around to a consignment shop. I didn’t want money, and places here like the Salvation Army won’t take baby things due to safety. So, I put them out on the curb.
I didn’t throw them away, I put them out to see if people would take them. Not even one hour passed and it was all gone! I call that a win-win situation. You get rid of something while helping someone else.
Now, my gears are turning. What else can I put on the curb on garbage day?
And I missed it!!! By 20 days exactly!!! Oh, I haven’t stopped getting rid of things, I just haven’t been talking photos nor logging it… With a new baby and everything that went on with my father on law’s heart surgery, me having the obnoxious dog, my body and mind being absolutely beat up… My blogging took a back seat…
One year of getting rid of one unneeded thing or more!!! I still did it…I did more that 365 things…
One way to get rid of clutter is to get rid of things you don’t need, try keeping things simple and to stop buying things just because.
Although, this chapter is now closed… Doesn’t mean I’m going to stop getting rid of things… I’m not going to stop until I have only what I need.
One thing about being pregnant is that you open your door and you have a box of formula as a gift from Similac.
Well, I have no use for it, so another trip to church, hoping it will find a baby in need.
Babe is sort of taking over and getting rid of things. Is he nesting? Hmmm!
He gave me this to donate! Yay Babe!
Babe went into the basement and folded laundry and then came upstairs with bags of clothes to donate! I don’t even know what’s in them and I don’t care!
There is another bag I didn’t get a photo of, but all I can say is…Gooooo Babe!!!
We took down our Christmas decorations and tree. Decided to get rid of these!
It has been 20 days since I have posted, but I have stopped getting rid of things. In fact every time I do laundry, I’ve been finding things that can be donated. This bag has 40 articles of clothing. Things we like but don’t wear, things that do not fit, things we no longer like, things that need to disappear out of our house! I keep putting them in this bag until full so we can donate it! It is full my friends!
Out to donation it will go! With the amount of things in there I have been getting rid of 2 things a day! Cool Huh?
Have you been getting rid of stuff?
My boys have grown, so we are donating their shoes. My feet have gotten wider, so I’m getting rid of my shoes. Babe wears his shoes out so we getting rid of his shoes! Donate, donate, donate!
