I doubt I will physically go count all the items.
DD decided she was ready to start making her dollhouse and in order to do that, we had to empty the dresser she has been using that is going to become the new dollhouse. Which also meant we had to go through her "too big" and "out of season" clothes in her real dresser in her bedroom. Whew! We went through every single article of clothing the child owns and I let her give away anything and everything she no longer likes regardless of how many times she has worn it or if it fits, etc. She has excellent taste and really loves clothes. She has been raised with regular decluttering and understands the concepts of giving to others, etc. All of her clothing now fits in her one dresser nicely and easily!
She continued onto her entire bedroom, too. Her nightstand drawer is now easily opened and closed, which is amazing! LOL She also has decided she no longer enjoys dress-up and gave away all the dress-up clothing that is too small for her anyway. She kept two Halloween costumes that are still slightly large on her. She has an Ikea Trofast tall wood structure with four bins in it (2 shallow and 2 medium)...all were overflowing and now only two have anything in them (1 shallow and 1 medium)...she already has a plan for the other shallow one and I have a plan for the other medium one. LOL Tomorrow will see if both ideas work.
Her bookcase was thinned out recently, but she also pointed out a blanket in the top of her closet she has never liked and a Dora tent/sleeping bag set she no longer likes. She is 7, by the way. I also rearranged her closet a bit and now she has a reading nook in there and she is beyond thrilled!
She explained to me that she no longer wants her babydoll in her bedroom, but she isn't ready to give "Brooke" away.
Her bedroom doesn't really look any different, but she says it is nicer now.
DH & I feel like her entire bedroom moved into OUR bedroom! ACK!!!
The usual giveaway spot is at the bottom of our closet under my hanging shirts. Um, yeah, it exploded out into our bedroom quite aways today! I bagged it all up and we are planning to load up the car and take it away tomorrow (not her babydoll, though). There are at least 10 bags, including the stuff that has been in "the spot" since the last time I took a batch to charity, plus a picnic basket and "princess" dress that are "loose". Maybe I can stuff that dress into the basket??? LOL
We really need to go through our family office next!!!
