It all started with doing a quick inventory of the kiddos' summer clothes. It quickly snowballed into me trying to keep my winter goal of going through all of the storage tubs in the garage.
Apparently I am a keepsake junkie. Eleven storage tubs are currently spread out all over my living room. I had NO idea how much stuff I've saved so far for my kiddos. Hello~they are only 6 and 4! I am out of control! In an effort to regain control~and make my hubby happy~I am trying to purge... somewhat.
Actually, it's a good thing. Because I apparently had forgotten to ever go through my son's clothes as he outgrew them. I still have tons of baby boy clothes that I had totally forgotten about. I couldn't believe it! And as I am going through the other *keepsake* tubs, I am looking at some things with more perspective and realizing that I've saved too much.
So I am working on paring it down to the *really special* outfits, such as, the one they wore home from the hospital, had their first photo taken in, wore for their church dedication.... Instead of Every Single Cute Outfit They Ever Owned. You understand.
So if you don't hear from me in a few days, start looking under the burp cloths.
