i decluttered!
i decided early in December to share my excess goodies with my girls -
well, it WAS excess...but GOOD excess! :)
when we downsized six years ago, i commented when this area is full it's time to clean out again.
that time came!

- my storage room -
i had even forgotten what i had and did save a few things.
i put the girl's names in a basket and pulled their names,
then the last one got to choose first.
after six rounds, it became a 'pick what you want' jamboree!
it felt really good to watch it walk away!
in the other room the grandkids were having a party of their own.
 (she really isn't picking her nose!)
 and P is only posing!
the shelves are empty and i can pick up more goodies rearranged!
all this doesn't mean i'll stop thrifting or doing yard sales...
it merely allows me thefun and freedom to do it again! :)

Looks like a grand party!! Can you put my name on the guest list for next time?? =) Happy Restocking! Rachel M.

Wow - wish you were my mom! Sounds like fun... And I'm with you - I'll probably always be a thrifter and yard saler.

Rachel, it was easier & 'funner' than a yard sale! :)
Joyce, what more can i say?! :)

What a great way to get rid of stuff and make room for more bargains and finds instead of letting it pile up. Bet your kiddos loved it too!

I'm jealous, I don't have a mom to spoil me like that.;o) That must have been so fun for your kids, though.
Thank you for the hints on how to make a wreath, I am determined to make one.
Hugs, Cindy
