Bagging it and out
OK my little “Hints from Heloise” self is chiming in again here (I used to read that column in the paper voraciously as an elementary school kid. That is so odd when I think of the big picture of developing me. Hints from Heloise was the precursor to blogs giving you nifty penny saving ideas and happy help for the home.) to update you on the progress over here.
Day 4: bag of old coats I never wear found in basement closet: Salvation Army bound
Day 5: umbrella stroller, kid pack, trainer potty: colleague bound
Day 6: Broke down some heavy duty boxes that were in the basement room of doom: recycled.
Day 7: Bag of out grown Marcel clothes: to two colleagues with little guys
Day 8: giant pile of newspapers being saved for what?: recycle bin
Day 9: WE DID IT! Pile of toys from pile #3 (Toys we never play with-and we mean never! The idea of three piles-One are Toys we always play with. Pile #2 Toys we sometimes..This idea came from this post at Pragmatic Mom on How to Get Kids to Help with Spring Cleaning)
Nine bags equals almost a car load of space in this house. And after nine days we already feel the difference.
Day 10: That’s today. And it’s Friday, so who knows.
Anyone been inspired? Thinking about it? One bag a day… that’s all it takes.
