Spring cleaning?

The warm air and sunny, blue sky invigorates me. I have energy again.
It's time.
It's time to hit those closets and drawers.
And purge.
Oh yes, at this time of the year it is so easy for me to get rid of things, stuff.
The only problem is I live with pack rats, hoarders. So, I have to make sure it is a garbage day when I do my purge of :
Stuff we do NOT need. 
Because, inevitably Kevin will be found rummaging through the garbage shouting, "I need this!" or " WHAT!!! I love this, how could she throw this way?"
Notice the "she." Because Dad is a saver, collector, the opposite of "she." He knows that Dad would never throw "stuff" away.
But "she" will, oh yes...she will.

Oh what a great day to purge your "stuff"! When your done, can you come help me with mine? I really need to do that too! It is amazing how much crap one family can accumulate through out the year. Have a great day, can you smell the turkey?

I always have to wait till I am home alone. The WORST one is my 14 year old. He has kept every item EVER given to him EVER. It took him over 5 months one time to notice that stuff was gone. He still doesn't know that I pitched it..he thinks he left it somewhere :) I am evil.

Sometimes I go overboard in tossing but I try to go with some mantras I once heard... "if you haven't used it in a year"..."would you rather store it for 20 years for your grandchildren or use that space now?"..."if 'he' ever needs another half can of spray paint, I will personally go buy him a full can in his choice of color WITH the spray nozzle". You go girl!! :)

I have to do the same thing, wait until Kate is at school. I love purging of useless stuff.

Just yesterday I was sitting in my living room and looking at the DUST!!! Thinking I have so much cleaning, dusting, vacuuming, etc. to do that it wore me out!! also thinking about the clutter I too need to get rid of.

LOL... I only have my love, but he does the same thing so I go through his things when he isn't around. LOL... I love spring cleaning! If I have the guts I will have to share the mess I create just to clean!
