These past couple of days have been quite busy around the house with all sorts of activities. I've been reading the book, "Sink Reflections" by Marla Cilley a.k.a. the Fly Lady. Right now I'm on the chapter about decluttering the house. It really lit a fire under me realizing that now with the second baby on the way, space is just going to start getting tighter and tighter from here on out. We don't have a big house and its not too full with clutter, but enough that if I were to let it go, the house would start to get uncomfortable and we'd be banging into things all over the house.
So it was time to start emptying out closets, which I would call my hot spots ( a place that collects a bunch of junk or papers all the time). I've done this many times before and kept putting stuff back in that I just kept rationalizing that I would use again someday...eventually...if ever...right? Well, not this time. Mama meant business. Things went out! Most went in the garbage, but a couple of things were in good enough condition that I could send them on to my sister-in-law's garage sale she'll be having this weekend in town. I got all of the closets done! Hallelujah!
