I'll admit it. I'm a bit of a pack rat. I'm trying to do much better but Hubster sees treasures in all the stuff I want to get rid of. We cleaned out the garage last Summer and most the stuff got put back in for the garage sale he is still planning on having. I'm to the point where I just want the extra stuff gone.
Yesterday I went through Puddin Pop's closet. I'm embarrassed to say that 70% of the clothes in there were mine that I had put in there before she was born (almost 4 years ago). Truth is, they were probably there since we moved into the house (almost 7 years ago). I was putting bags together for the American Veterans. They mail bags each month and then send a truck by on a designated day to pick up all your donated items. I have 7 bags sitting on the curb right now. I finally was able to part with my High School Prom dress. Not sure what I was saving that for. I had some other dresses I had purchased when I was a size 4. I was a size for for about two months after a break-up with Hubster (obviously before we got married). Then we got back together and I went back to my original size 8. Yeah. Those clothes don't fit either.
I'm looking in the garage and realize we still have our infant car seats and matching stroller. I know I don't need the car seats but do I need the stroller? PP is almost 4 and doesn't even like to sit in the cart at the grocery store, but with season passes to Busch Gardens I'm not sure if she'll want to spend the whole time walking around. I guess we'll find out next week. We'll give it a try without and see how it works out. I may have a stroller and car seats to donate. If she does want to "ride", I still don't think shell be happy in the "baby" stroller. A baby jogger city mini would be good, but who wants to pay money for a new stroller with a 4 and 7 year old? Maybe we'll look into rentals for our trips to the park. What do you do?
So. I now need to go through my closet again. It's been almost two years and I'm pretty sure there's stuff I haven't worn since I insisted I should keep it last time around. The problem is that Hubster and I share a closet and every time I reduce my collection he ends up with 2/3 for the space. I tried to go through his stuff but he pulled out 80% of what I was trying to discard...and I can't get him to do it himself. If his new job takes him out of town likes he think it will, he's gonna have a surprise when he gets home....Lots of closet space.
