BIG summer CLEAN!'s been a WHILE since my last post, but I've been busy "shedding weight," unfortunately between cleaning my house and a trip to the beach, my digi cam has gone missing in action! So I can't share all my wonderful progress with you...visually, but you can take my word for it. While I've been gone, I've managed to:

Clean my son's room from top to bottom...literally which yeilded three 15 gallon bags of toys and one 15 gallon bag of clothes

Clean the bathroom closet and under the sink filling half of a 15 gallon bag with trash and a walmart bag with items for my church yardsale

The downstairs closet which included finally putting all my holiday decorations in the shed and going through ALL four boxes of sorority crafts I have from Phi Sigma Sigma (somebody better buy this stuff, too!)

And shed, where I went through the other two bags of crafts, and stored the other half of yard sale donations...(the remaining half are piled...NEATLY in my dining room)

I also went through all 500 pictures I had boxes and threw away...(tear) doubles....messed up prints and old pictures of people I barely knew in the first place (the really nice girl I meant at Panera once)....

All together from the kitchen, pictures, living room dining room, 4 closets, the shed and the bathroom I've shed.............da da da da.........................

about 120 gallons of trash

45 gallons of clothing

30 gallons of crafts

45 gallons of clothing

and a couple misc. bags and boxes of stuff......
