It needed to be done so badly, and I finally got it done! I went through every single piece of the girls' clothing, and threw out the junk stuff, and will Freecycle the rest, which is 3 huge black garbage bags, plus one smaller one. We also switched the dressers around, so the oldest 2 girls (8 & 6) got DH's dresser, he got the 6yo's, and 3yo DD got the 8yo's. Much, much better for organization!

This really felt good, as I've been struggling a lot lately with depression and grief from my M/C, and this helped me feel better . Their room was nothing but clothes all over the place, you couldn't walk in it, it was such a mess. Now, they only have enough clothes to fit in their dresser.

Cover me in awesome-sauce !!!

Thanks everyone! Someone from Freecycle picked up the clothes yesterday! Glad it's gone!

It's so nice to look at now, & they actually want to play in their room, because they can see the floor .

Thank you! It's still looking good in there. DH has them pick up their room every night before bed (I'm at work).
