Clean up and out

While Hillary is home we cleaned out the rest of her room. I had already thrown out some stuff and removed some furniture. I had left a pile for her to address and several drawers and shelves in her closet. It is amazing what came out of that space. We swear the stuff grew as we took it and put it in bags. We had four bags of trash, four bags to donate (pictured in trunk) and a bag for the consignment shop. Neither of us can figure out how all this fit in the room. Hillary claims she can feel the lightness in the room. I'm just stunned.
I am so glad I decided to start this project. Clearly we have too much "stuff". The next job is to paint the room. Next month after I do a few All Stitched Up jobs I'm going to get busy.
This certainly is a good start to the New Year.

Hmmm....I think we have the same "problem." It is a good feeling to let it all go!
