Making Your Home Sing Monday

Making your home sing Mondays



So today I have been going through all of my daughters clothes. I first started on her closet then went to her drawers. I tell you, that girl has so many clothes. The thing that I find sad is that she has all of these cute outfits but none of them seem to fit her. With the new school year just around the corner , I have to make room for her new school clothes. I am not getting rid of everything, just everything she has out grown, which seems to be the majority of her clothes. I have designated a side of her dresser for play clothes and the other side for school clothes. Then I have her closet set up in sections, 1 for dresses, 1 for nice outfits, and 1 for her nice shirts. I have decided to go through everything of hers including all of her winter clothes that I kept from last year since she grew over this past Spring. With her closets and drawers now containing only what fits her and the garage now only containing stored items that fit her , I now have a pretty good size box and 2 bags filled with girls clothes. So what do you do with all of the clothes that no longer fit your kids? I for one love this site we have here called http://www.freecycle.org/ . There are freecycle groups all over the country. I love this site because it gives people a place to post their unwanted items at and a place that if there is something you want or need you can ask for it. So in the next couple of days , once I have gone through my daughters shoes to add to the box, I will be posting an add for free girls items. And someone who may need clothes for school this year can get them for free. It makes me feel like I have accomplished something and at the same time helped someone in need. So my question to you for today is: What have you done to make your home sing today?

I love freecycle.org. I gave up on garage sales a long time ago and using freecycle just makes me feel better. It's greener and I am helping someone out.

My house is practically belting a world class opera because I finally FINALLY got the ironing done and because it smells like strawberry fig preserves.
