Oh, how I love to spring clean. I just lied. I don't actually enjoy the cleaning aspect of it, but I love to purge and I love going in a room and knowing it is DONE!
I have been dealing with migraines a lot this week, so today has been the first day I have really been doing some productive work. I decided after lunch to tackle M.E.'s room. I had already cleaned out Anna's room, so it was time to do the next girl. As I type, I have a HUGE mound of clothing in the middle of her floor, but the closet is P-E-R-F-E-C-T. All the spring/summer clothes are grouped together, fall/winter clothes for next year are in the back and the few baby things I have went ahead and bought are at the very front. I am currently hanging outfits for Saint Vickie to tag for the next consignment sale.
Because I swear I have ODD (a combination of OCD and ADD), I have also started two other projects (that's what I do...start a million projects and expect them all to be perfect). I am working in the living room on a bin from the garage. In it I have found loads of books my kids are done with that will also be going to Saint Vickie, a trash bag full of random stuff for my friend Tracy who is having a yard sale this weekend to raise money for her adoption, and another bag of stuff for my friend Amber who is having a yard sale in May for her adoption.
I have also been actively listing things of significant value I have found on ebay and I am proud to announce I have sold over $250 worth of CRAP so far in two weeks. I had a large lot of Longaberger liners, etc. that I had bought at a yard sale for $60 that I turned around and sold for $150. Then, I sold a Leapster I had found at a yard sale for $8 in which I turned around and sold for $42. Last but not least, a pair of pants I had bought at Matilda Jane that didn't fit...and I actually sold them for more than I paid! All this money is going towards my new crib I bought this weekend (no, I didn't pay that for it...you know me better than that). We actually moved M.E. into the new crib and are going to put new baby into M.E's old crib. Did I mention that once I move the large pile out of the middle of the floor, her room will be perfect?
So, that's what's new for us. How's your Spring cleaning going?
