We've been cleaning out as we pack. In the past two weeks, we've recycled about 12 bags of shredded paper from old files, donated 3 bags of toys/clothes/and general stuff, and donated 1 bag of children's books (lucky little Sweetie-Pie had duplicates). I've also purged and partially organized a bunch of old pictures (going back almost 20 years!). I had hoped to get the pictures into albums, but I don't have time for that right now. Maybe during next year's clean out.
I've also re-discovered ebay! I have a few things on ebay now and people have actually bid on them! I forgot how exciting it is to get money for the stuff that was just sitting in my house. Now I'm searching the house for other things to sell.
