My dad and step-mom are going to visit next weekend (hopefully... they haven't made it here for a looong time because of health problems, so I have my fingers crossed). So I need to get a bunch of crap *out* of the guest room closet, where I've been piling up get-rid-of stuff.
Some random totals:
3 big bags of baby clothes to go to another MDC mama.
: (But I won't see her till March... but I bet I can come up with another bag by then!
) Est >150 items
2 big bags of baby clothes past their prime to donate. >100 items
~50 old mazazines to go to the library free bin
probably ~20 items all told removed from my closet.... I think I'm going to reserve a few, though, to do wardrobe refashion projects with
box of plastic, battery-operated toys to go to the pediatric ward of the hospital (~10)
4 pairs of old shoes to take to recycle.
6 pieces of block styrofoam to recycle.
box of bubble wrap and box of styro peanuts to recycle.
~20 items of maternity clothes to list on craigslist (don't know if they'll go immediately, though)
There's more, but that's what really needs to get out this weekend. I suppose I'll have more before they arrive.
What the total? ~370? I realize now that I should set a goal of oh... 5000 or so.
