Full Dumpster, Great Feeling
So, of all things we wait until winter to move rooms around in my house. I have combined my office and craft area and moved my bedroom to the old craft room. It’s great because it is a lot closer to the bathroom and those night time tips are rough on the old bones!
Anyway, my granddaughter is getting my old room (she’s young, she can make the trek to the bathroom!) so we have been busy for days. I also decided that it was time to purge a lot of stuff that has just been sitting around for ages…you know, this and that type stuff that I always “thought” I would get around to doing something with.
I crochet a lot and I sew. I kept anything pertaining to that, but other craft stuff that I always intended to try either got given away, or thrown away. You’d be surprised what you can unearth in the nooks and crannies of a really big house!
Digging around has even saved some money. Now that my son and 3 grandchildren are living here we thought we needed to go buy more winter blankets. I found a great big pile of them in the back of a closet that I had forgotten about. Just a good washing and we now have more blankets than we need.
The bedroom I am now occupying is fresh, clean and completely clutter free. I am determined to make sure it stays that way. As soon as I get my granddaughters room done, I intend to start on another room, and then another and so on throughout the winter. The dumpster staying full is a great feeling!
No, that is not my dumpster! It was too cold out to go take a picture of it.
