I mentioned our big dejunking project yesterday. We started upstairs. I have no before picture because that would be really embarrassing. (I can talk about bowel movements but not the state of my upstairs - that should tell you something)
But, I'd be happy to share with you the after. This is 16 years (more or less) worth of toys and games that we plowed through. I think I did a big purge a few years ago so maybe it's not 16 years worth of stuff anymore. But still, it was huge! 4 big bags went into the garbage, I've got 1 in the back of my van for donating and we sorted and emptied 5 "blueberry bins". All that's left upstairs is one big bin for "one piece toys", a box of Lincoln Logs, a bin of Brio, a bin of dress-up stuff (why? I'm not really sure) and a bin of Sesame Street remote control race track. All the games and puzzles went into hanging bags .
Whew, I'm glad that's done!
Now onto my homeschool bookshelves!
