First, let me say: I love this girl. She is sweet, kind and thoughtful. But, has a real hard time letting go of STUFF. She will admit it.
Went to her room the other day, WOW, her closet scared me. For one, you couldn't even step into it. It's a WALK IN CLOSET. She had been asking for help to find her compression clothing. The weather is really getting to her. As it gets colder she will need to wear her nice warm, help her circulation, compression clothing. Wonder why, read this.
So, here's what happened. Cousins and sisters have been passing her clothing. She hasn't gotten rid of anything. In fact. She still has stuff she wore in the 8th grade! She's in 11th. There is no way it's all going to fit into her closet or dresser. Some of it has to go. I couldn't tell clean piles from dirty. I have been washing it all. Sorting it into piles, then she tells me what she actually wears. I am going to help put it all away. Talk about an over whelming project, whew...I was wiping my brow from simply carrying up the stairs everything. Shhh!!!! I have a secret bag that I have been stuffing shirts and other items that I haven't seen her wear in quite sometime or are to small,into.
There is still a nice size basket sitting in my laundry room still waiting it's turn to be washed. It will keep until I return home from work today. When I will finish it up, then call her in to sort through all of the piles. I will be saying "Let it go girl, because if you want anything new you gotta let it go."
Sometimes Fall Nesting, is all about cleaning out the clutter!
