The last few weeks we ate out the freezer before the heat set in and we wont eat those winter meals, cleaned out the fridge and if there was too many containers, had a leftover night for dinner. (pad thai is really good w guacomole on the side )

I have shredded, cleaned out files, just gotten rid of stuff. Even now I have a pile for the TP of outgrown dipes and clothing.

I think the playroom has toys that multiply by the hour. I also made a deal with my 4 yr old. If she wants something new, she needs to give away 2 toys to another child who dosent have them. I went thru there today while she was asleep and weeded out the party favors, bad costume stuff, happy meal toys, old playdoh, tidbits etc that seem to pile up.
what else could I do now?
wow thats great. I am now on to the extra room and bathroom. I am totally procrastinating my bedroom lol. I am also drastically reducing the clothing my children have and working on getting rid of my clothes in the hopes of making laundry managable.

I consolidated the cleaning supplies into a caddy to carry around. I cleaned out my sheep supplies (no more sheep). Kept a few key things but tossed the rest. I have a completely empty cupboard It'll be used to store the canned food I put up this year.

I am doing really well for July. I'd really like some built-ins for my living room. I envision a row of cupboards, with a counter for the TV and Stereo and book shelves. It's a fantasy.
