THAT'S IT!!! I am clearing my house of baby STUFF! No more giant boxes of baby clothes! Out go the baby toys/equipment and all the stuff my kids use very little! I am over it all! I would love some space in my house and better yet, I would LOVE to have LESS stuff to clean up! My tornadoes of clutter start spinning at 6am when they wake and never slow down until they crash into bed at night. All I ever do is clean up the aftermath of these Tasmanian devils. SO.. less stuff, less mess.
I was listening to Suze Orman on Oprah talk about how people who value the things money can buy take care of them in an organized way. ooooo, that hit home, big time. Dang Suze and her valid points! ;) It is so true though. This is why we are clearing out, buy only things the kids will play with and take care of what we have. The kids stuff isn't the only thing to go, but its a start. I still want to do my kitchen, who needs 5 mixing bowls anyways? and my closet, but those are HUGE projects in themselves.
I am going to do a Craigslist sale here at the house... two days where people can show up and buy all this stuff!! A large chunk of our proceeds will be going to the Austin Habitat for Humanity. I chose this non profit because we are lucky enough to have a house to fill with excess while many have no home at all.
So, if you live in the area and need ANY baby stuff... stop by THIS Friday or Saturday October 10th or 11th. I will start at 9am and go till 5pm. Come by anytime!
What I have (this isn't everything):
playmats, toys (baby and toddler),
pool floatie for infant
baby boys clothes Newborn to 12 months starting with fall/winter stuff,socks, shoes (Robeez)
toddler girl summer clothes mostly 2T
colorgrown cotton cloth diapers and cloth diaper covers
bath accesories, tub and pillow
XL maternity clothes (cold weather)
cloth storage cart
BPA free glass and plastic bottles
If you are a friend of mine and would like to haul your kids stuff over here to sell (as long as your willing to share your $$ with Habitat) feel free. Just email me and let me know! The more the merrier!
