Goodwill Hunting and Other Ramblings...


So far this new year I...

have gotten my hands on some great after Christmas clearance sales
 +
thrown out 7 garbage bags worth of "stuff" after I reorganized my three kiddos rooms
+
moved both of my girls into the same room
+
turned my daughter's old room into a play room for all three of my sweet kiddos
{to have all of their toys in one spot
will be a dream come true!!!}
+
donated 3 garbage bags full of "stuff" to Goodwill
+
hunted down some great deals at Goodwill too!!!
{hey, while you're there you might as well look around for hidden treasures!}

like...

An awesome outdoor light fixture...pictured above {$4.00}
2 white twin sheets in perfect condition {$2.00 ea.}
A big basket I'm going to use for toys
in the new playroom {$4.50}
2 really ugly plates that I have plans
on using for an upcoming project {.50 cents ea.}

...just to name a few.

Finding great deals + getting the house more organized = one happy mamma!

Right after Christmas I dropped off 3 big boxes of unwanted Christmas decorations to Goodwill and I plan to do the same after all the holidays this year. Out with the old and unwanted!! Feels great!

Okay..so I have to tell you that I think we are scaring our husbands. R got home from OT last night and said, "Do YOU know what Robin was doing today?" I said, "Nooo...." he replied with, "Cleaning out their kiddos rooms/closets..just like YOU. Do you know what Jason did today?" I said, "Noooo..." and he replied, "Painting! Painting just like ME." ha ha I died laughing! As soon as the kiddos went back to school Monday I dove into their rooms/closets and just reorganized and hauled stuff out. AND I kid you not, I laughed out loud when I read this blog because I TOO took home a few prizes from Goodwill! My hearts desires included a GORGEOUS glass apothecary ($6.50!!) Once these boys get on days let's leave the wee one's with them and go treasure hunting together for a few hours! :)

I have been doing the same thing Robin and it feels so good to have all of that clutter out of the house! Wow! You really scored at Goodwill...I can't wait to see your finds. What a wonderful idea to give your kids a playroom! I bet your girls were excited to share a room, too:).
