Blogging From A to Z — ‘Garbage’

April 8, 2013


Definition:  Worthless or nonsensical matter;

I use the word garbage but really what I am talking about its the great Spring Clean and the amount of things I tossed out this weekend. Truthfully I think I recycled more of it than I tossed but my lord did my beloved daughters amass an amazing amount of stuff that is perfectly useless except to irritate the heck out of me. We went through it bit by bit and they had no clue why they held onto half of the things that they did and were more than happy to part with it permanently.

I love spring cleaning even though it is a great big pain in the neck and takes up a ton of time. But I always love the fresh renewed clean slate that you end up with at the end of it. I still have a bunch of rooms to go through but I am going to try for one room a day starting with my room and working my way down. I figure it shouldn’t take me more than another week.

Have you done your spring clean yet? Or will you be doing one at all?

    I also love a good spring clean…makes my life (and mind) feel less cluttered. I just wish my husband valued the principle too 🙂

    I am not looking forward to spring cleaning. I envy those, like yourself, who can get it done so early in the season.

      Ah I am off to a fast start… but its the REST of the house that will be a while yet in getting done 😉

    I did a mid-winter purge, but that doesn’t mean more crap hasn’t accumulated!

    Great idea! I am not that motivated! Maybe if I threw out a few things each day?

    Great post. Stopping by from A to Z.

    Oh man, you had to go there! 🙂

    Cleaning, rather upkeep cleaning, is not my forte. I do thank God that there are housekeepers. But I still need to get all my clothes and covers washed. Things just don’t stay done!

    I love a good Spring Clean too, it is something I tend to do frequently, I blame my mother for that trait LOL

    I’m in the midst of it myself. I usually just toss the stupid stuff and if I’m asked about it later I just say, How should I know what you did with it.” It’s simply maddening !
