This is the first time in forever, I actually went through all the crappe in the 4th of July box and cleaned stuff out. My plan is to gleen every box of holiday stuff I have and sell it all or give it away. I cleaned out about 1/3 of the "things" I had for the 4th. I hope to be able to do that with all of the holiday-arama (I'm not a hoarder says the lady with the largest collection of holiday crap in the world) I have in the garage in huge blue plastic containers.
Do you remember on Sesame Street where Ernie and Bert talk about the milk bottle top collection that they have to find a place for? so they put the fish in a something else and the use the fish bowl and on and on. I'm am weary of my life being like the something else in the story....always too much stuff not enough places to stuff it. And ya know what was the catalyst for this enterprise? The Mad Tea Party junque. Where to put it afterwards.....Seems like a few gathered together things that I wanted to keep together would be a no brainer. And it was. There was no more brain to handle to overload of stuff. Can you say GARAGE SALE. And then can you dial a charity quickly before the damnable stuff grows legs and crawls back into the garage?
Again I hope you had a Happy 4th ya'll.
