Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme




Yesterday I decided to participate in my first "Tackle it Tuesday" hosted by 5MinutesforMom. (Since Monday was a holiday, I had time to do it early!) I tackled Crunchy (5 year old daughter) and Munchie (3 year old son) bedroom closet. While doing laundry (or after putting on an outfit that is definitely too small) I toss the hand-me-downs into a box in the bottom of the closet. Periodically, I go through and bag up the extras. It's been a while...

I ended up taking out 3 trash bags full of clothes that need to find a new home (next yard sale?); one bag that is going to a friend (she already told me she can use them for her 2 year old); and a bag of trash (don't tell anybody, but I threw out some papers from when Chewie (now 10 and in the 5th grade) was in Kindergarten and first grade. (Don't worry, I kept some!) I also filled a bag with "Keepers"---clothes that have sentimental value (like the patriotic dresses for our Yankee Doodle Princess and the black Nike high tops that all three kids have worn.) and another bag with clothes that don't yet fit Munchie. All the bags were removed from the closet. I also found a home for the airbed that was at the bottom of the closet.

What a great tackle. With school coming, I got into my daughter's closet this weekend. She has so many hand-me-downs from her 5 cousins, I only had to buy shoes!! Awesome!

OK, I thought my daughter had too many clothes, but your kids definitely top her.... Great tackle!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Actually, I live in Mexico, not New Mexico, but I know Roswell well! Love your tackle. Does it not feel great to get rid of trashbags full of stuff? Hope to see you again soon!
