Summer Cleaning

...well, more like summer purging.

One of our big "to dos" this summer was to go through the closet in The Bean's room and decide what to do with a bunch of the stuff we have in there.

We still haven't made it through that entire closet, but in the  past few days we've gone through pretty much every other closet, cupboard, drawer and dresser.  At least a dozen bags have been taken to Goodwill.  (That's on top of the three garbage bags of clothes we took there at the beginning of the summer.)  There is a pile in our bedroom of items we hope to sell on Craigslist (we're giving them until Labour Day and then taking them to Goodwill).  Hand-me-downs have been passed along to my sister.

And you know what?  It feels good to be rid (or almost rid) of it all!  It's amazing how much accumulates or sits around unused, just taking up space.  This is probably something we should do more often!
