Today I am surrounded by stacks. Stacks of laundry I am doing and stacks and of boxes I am packing. I am really working hard to get ready for this move and am a packing madwoman. Little by little the house is starting to come together.
As for laundry, I have a plan. I want to get every tiny little bit of laundry done. Then I want to gather all the clothes that are owned by each individual child in this house together into stacks. Then one by one, I will go through the clothes. Anything that is ripped, torn or stained will go in the garbage. Anything that doesn’t fit will go to charity. I see no need to move clothes are no longer useful to anyone in our house. I expect this will be a full day job (I have a pretty big family), but it will be good to get a handle on who needs what in the future and to be organized.
On a sidenote, I am pretty sure I am going to have a family closet for all the kids in the new house that will make it easier for me to keep on top of things in this way.
