Is that a word: Relocater?
Oh well, you know what I mean.
In anticipation of The Movers coming and packing up all our stuff I have been systematically cleaning out and organizing.
And for someone who doesn't have a lot stuff, we sure have a lot of stuff!
I decided to tackle my bedroom closet this week. You won't believe what I found.
There were six boxes I never unpacked after our move 17 months ago!
Out of those six boxes, three had had never been opened from the TX to NC move over three years ago. I actually had to get a box cutter to open the packaging tape!
Yesterday, and this morning, I have opened, unpacked, and thrown away many things from those boxes. Obviously, when you can go three (+) years without opening boxes, chances are you don't need what's inside. Do you think?
My closet was so unorganized that it bordered on criminal.
The nice thing is that it feels good to get rid of things that I didn't even know I had!
What's next on the list? My Desk. The Boy's room and The Car. After that it's the refrigerators and the pantry. The Girls Room was done this weekend.
After that I am going to sit down and gaze upon the organization that moving produces, because I seriously hope this will be the last time I see it.
La Vida Dulce!
