100th Post and Spring Cleaning

First off, the is my 100TH POST. Woohoo - Happy Dance. It's been great sharing my thrifting and garage sale adventures with all of you the past few months. Here's to 100 more.

So I decided to start my Spring Cleaning today in hopes that maybe it will bring Spring on. Bring on the sunshine, warm air, flowers and all the other great things that accompany Spring. Well, I guess I can hope anyway but it's still cold outside. So since I'm cooped up indoors I've decided to start going through the house gathering up some stuff for Goodwill.



It's a start. Hopefully, I'll be able to get more done tomorrow when the kids are back at school from their break. It's a lot easier when no one is digging anything out of the Goodwill box as my little loves sometimes do. My big love does that also. You can put something in a Goodwill box that hasn't been touched in years and the phrase "Hey, I might need that someday" all of a sudden comes into play. Also, there's the famous "Hey, I play with that" even though they haven't touched it in a month of Sunday's.

Well, back to work I go.

Until next time.

Right behind me sits a box and a huge garbage bag going to Redeemer Goods (similar to Goodwill).

I new favorite word is declutter! lol

I'm been diligent, merciless and steadfast at getting rid of things that has been sitting around here.

I keep reminding myself, if I don't love it, than get rid of it. Like is not good enough to keep my millions of collections I have around the house, LOL.

Of course Yard Sales start up in May, so I am quite sure I will have my house filled again soon.

I love the Spring Cleaning idea girl. I've been telling everyone around where I live,,"I smell Spring, I smell Spring"..lol

Guess what I saw today?? A bluebird...sitting right outside my studio so that means Spring is sure to follow. They always start looking early for a nesting spot. Go ahead and take all that great stuff to Goodwill...one of us bloggers will be there to buy it for sure. :)

I had to laugh because we do the same thing here. We load up bags and boxes and somehow...half of it always seems to find its way back out. Darn sentimental attachments. I have a problem with wanting to go inside the Goodwill when I drop off stuff, too..lol. So, gotta get hubby to do it for me so I am not tempted!

LOL! I know, I get that all the time to. Suddenly whatever it is becomes very important. Never mind that it hasn't been used or even thought about for months/years! I started going through books and magazines today to take to the library to donate.

HI Annabella!

A couple of days ago I was doing basically the same thing. I have been taking one closet or one drawer and cleaning it out. Rag pile, donation box. So, do you think if we get enough people doing the Spring cleaning it will bring on spring faster? I am so READY for Spring!!

Have a wonderful day!

Oh, and congrats on 100 posts!
