“Spring” Cleaning Tip
Hubby and I have been finshing unpacking (from our move-in a year ago). You know, all those last little details--hanging pictures, digging out boxes of god-only-knows-what and sorting into trash, give-away, keep-and-store, and keep-and-use. The kind of honest-to-goodness deep cleaning that happens very rarely (well, around here anyways ;). I am a total packrat and have a really hard time getting rid of stuff. Most of it is stuff that I will never use again nor miss once it is gone, but I just can't "let-go". Soooo...what I have started doing is taking pictures of these things with my digital camera and then giving them away or throwing them out (as appropriate). It takes up no space, costs virtually nothing, and still lets me keep a little bit of the item. : ) I figured this might be useful to my fellow pack-rats who HATE giving anything away. Happy cleaning!
