Thanks for your well wishes for my DS. He has just been so sick, so this week has not gone well for decluttering. In fact, my dryer was on its last legs, so we had to go shopping for a new washer/dryer set. I have been spending my time catching up on laundry!LOL!
As I have washed the children's winter clothes, I have put them aside to donate to Goodwill or Salvation Army. I wanted to hold on to them and consign them when the fall season rolls around, but DH did have a good point about having to find a place to store them, remembering to find out when the consignment shops take the seasonal merchandise, haul them out, wash them, take them to the shop, etc. It's just too much to think about right now!
We are thinking of moving this summer to be closer to a school where my DD might attend. If we do, then we definitely need to get rid of some things around here so that the house shows better. Now, if I could just get the kids to keep it clean while it's on the market!
ShannonCC, that's a great idea about just putting the animals away to see if she misses them, but my DD is going to be 8 years old on Wednesday, and unfortunately, she does remember these things! So, I can't always get away with the "hide it and if she doesn't play with it, out it goes" technique. I could do that when she was a lot younger, but she has wised up to my ways!
I hope to do better this week with decluttering!
