Cleaning, Decluttering and Organizing
That's what I've been doing in my spare time the past couple of nights. We have a spare room that Mike uses as a computer room, and a catch-all for everything. I used to clean this room all the time and keep it neat and organized, empty the trash etc. Well, about 9-12 months ago, I went on "strike", I was tired of cleaning the room for him and he would just mess it up again, so I figured if it got bad enough, he would clean. I was wrong!! He would just shut the door so I could try to ignore it!!
Finally, I got so fed up the other night, I told him we were cleaning and throwing out a bunch of stuff. Well, 6 big trash bags later, we still aren't completely done. I was tossing everything!!! I found bike parts, fishing lures, fishing reels, tennis stuff, computer parts, more bike parts and fishing lures, etc. I brought one big bag of clothes to the Goodwill and I think I might try to put some on ebay (he says they shrunk in the wash, but the truth is he's gained 25 pounds!!) whatever!!
All I/we have left to do is buy a couple of plastic bins for storage for his extra computer stuff that he uses all the time. And, I want to rip up the rug, since its been down for a while, there's a nice floor underneath. Of course I'll wash the curtains and walls, etc.
Slowly making progress!
