Spring Cleaning

We have lived in our house for about 2 years now and frankly we are collecting way too much stuff. I decided that it was time to do some spring cleaning and clean out the closets. My rule was if I haven't used/worn it in over a year, then it must go. Now, I started this little project while Louis was sleeping on the bed but when he woke up I convinced him to join the fun too. After all he has a slight hording complex (thanks Bill) and I need to try and manage :)

All of the stuff for Goodwill.

Louis is the person who collect shoe boxes (see, he is a horder) and I finally convinced him we don't need the boxes so lets get rid of them!

Trash pile. Lots of crappy t-shirts and ripped clothes

All bagged up. The white bags were for goodwill, as well as the brown bags. The black ones were trash or recycle.

Overall, it was a super productive Saturday. Not only did we manage to purge and clear our closets but we also dropped off the stuff at Goodwill the same day-- that way there was no way the stuff could simply sit around our house and collect dust waiting for us to drop it off.

  1. A) We did this last year and Goodwill got an extraordinary amount of clothes from me.
    B) While I agree that Louis and James are hoarders, I see absolutely nothing wrong with keeping shoe boxes. I use them for random stuff all the time, i.e. organizing, boxes for wrapping, etc. ;)
    C) Fantastic job on the spring cleaning. It looks like you guys opened a lot of space up!
