Okay, I'll be posting my 5 things later today. It's the last day of school and then the end of the year party, so when I get home, work is totally behind me and I can focus on my house 100%. What 5 things did you toss today?

June 19th

Okay, I am a cleaning machine today! I've got a big, empty plastic shopping bag in each room that I'm going to fill, fill, FILL! So far, I have tossed:

-stuff that was hanging on my fridge that is really old
-extra papers that dd had scribbled on and I was keeping just in case she felt like scribbling again
-old receipts
-stuff that was just sitting in the printer tray that I thought I would use when I printed, but I never did
-clothing tags off of dd's clothes from her birthday (2/23/03) that have been sitting on top of her dresser since she opened them!

I spent Mon and Tues cleaning out the basement- need I say more? I had to make a mid week dump run without dh- that's how much crap I got rid of:D

Items included- a Diaper Genie and an extra infant bathtub that I put in the Goodwill dumpster

A 4' tall cardboard box filled with paper, cardboard and other assorted recyclables that dh always leaves behind when he makes a dump run

Magazines from 1999

Cut up milk jugs that were used in the garage as funnels, waterers for the chickens and the like

Now my basement is cleaner than the rest of the house, LOL!!

Ooops Amy, sorry I didn't post here first!!

I did some more tossing today after I posted the other thread.

- tossed a crockpot I never use (its going to Goodwill). Its one of the older ones and you can't take the pot out.

- a couple of old books not being used, again going to Goodwill.

This one was really hard for me to do.
Today, DH tossed (giving to goodwill) all of Dharmas clothes and toys. He had to do this while I was at work or I would have freaked out.
