|My inspiration to get started!|
Day one I filled up a 32 gallon trash bag with paper trash we collected from opening gifts. I reorganized the gift wrap tote and added worn out and smashed bows, tissue wrap and some bedraggled gift bags to the trash bag. Then I made my way through the entire house and emptied trash cans and other odds and ends I found until that bag was completely stuffed. I gave each girl a grocery bag and they filled them up with trash from their own rooms so our first day was very successful. Three bags just like that!
|Lots of stuff leaving the house|
|Even our pantry got overhauled - 3 times!|
|So much better!|
|My shred pile. Gone!|
I filled up a grocery bag with notebooks and legal pads I did not want or need and took them into work to be used there. I also filled up another bag of food items we did not need or want, mostly cookies and candy, and taking that into work as well.
