    Okay, I'm back. I kind of "cheated" by having the kids help fill up one of the bags

    I have two trash cans at the curb along with an old wooden cd rack and an old plunger that has been on the deck for ages, and I have no idea where it came from, so I figure, after 2.5 years, it was time for it to go.

    I am SO ready to fill another bag tomorrow.

    Good job everyone!

    Two bags of garbage today, and one bag of wire hangers. The hangers are going to a freecycler. Tomorrow I am tackling my pantry, the top of my fridge, and maybe the inside of it.

    Good for you, Missy!

    Today I'm enlisting the help of my kids in filling the bags. I'm going to have Julia start the bag by taking it to her room and finding anything that can be tossed. Then, we'll head to Patrick's room and do the same. Then, just around the house we go. I know we'll fill it, if we have to search in every nook and cranny we can find!

    This challenge has been very challenging! I'm exhausted. O.K. enough of me whining..lol

    I have accomplished a lot. Dh and I filled rubbish bag after rubbish bags of junk to throw out.......aprox. 7 bags! Also went through bags of kids clothes, I had the girls try them on and what was old or grown out was given away or tossed.
    We are in our basement, I can't believe I let this get so bad. I'm organized and clutter free in our living space with three kids. I think I have two different personalities.
    Now we are running into old books, special papers, pictures etc. from the kids.
    I had to stop it was getting emotional. Ya know?
    I feel really good, we have come a long way.

    Keep up the hard work FV friends! Your inspiring me to continue on.
