I cannot believe I am showing this, but here is just a glimpse of some of the stuff removed from my junk room. Also the backside of Jennifer hard at work getting all of my clothes ready for consignment. My girls are 7 and 5 and I have never gotten rid of any of their clothes. I sold some this Spring and made about $700 and that was just the tip of the iceburg! (sorry this photo is fuzzy, but maybe it won't hurt your eyes so bad!!)

I hope you all are having a great week so far! I certainly have. Mine started off with an intervention in my crazy life by some of my friends. They came over early, and I mean REALLY early and forced me to clean out my junk room, aka the master bedroom. Confession, I have let that room get the best of me. It has housed all of my scrap junk, art supplies, treadmill, clothes I have been selling, and various other junk for years now. My husband and I have a bedroom upstairs, because I was not letting my babies sleep up there by themselves, but they are growing up and I am more comfortable with that now, sad story in itself, anyway.... where was I? So after about ten bags to Goodwill, several bags of stuff that they called "garbage" and I called "treasures", the place is looking up! Now the upstairs room will become a craft and scrap room for my girls and myself. Something we desperately need. That's all we do and we love to CREATE together. It's gonna free up tons of space! I have gotten the before shots, but I don't think that I am brave enough to to show them. These girls are troopers. Even they were wringing their hands about half way through! They are gonna come back in a week or so and help me finish it off! I hate to leave things undone, but a cropping weekend and a family vacation in the midst of it all cannot be helped! You know you have an awesome friendship when they volunteer to help you do something like that because they know how much it is bothering you. THANKS so much girls, I owe you big!

On another note, I have added that follower thing to my blog because I discovered some readers had me linked to their blog and I did not even know it! If you read my junk, let me know! I want to be able to get to know you too! Click on my followers link and I can keep up with you from there! Thanks! I look forward to getting to know you!


  1. Dude! Thats alot of crap! Before you put the girls stuff in the consignment shop, Maddi is a size 18-24 months. Bring me some stuff and I will buy it from you! See you thursday!

  2. Girl, you aren't alone in needing an intervention. You haven't seen my garage or closet.
