Are you a fan of stuffing?
When the holidays come, do you picture yourself sitting at the table, scooping out a mound onto your plate?
Me? Not so much.
Like ever. When that bowl gets passed around the table, it goes right by me.
Just the idea of stuffing a bunch of stuff into a space simply because it’s empty, doesn’t really appeal to me too much.
Yuck, as a matter of fact!
Which is why this morning, I found myself laughing as I stood at the abyss of the toy room doorway.
Granted, balls, games, books, racetracks, stuffed animals, magic kits, coloring books, and musical instruments aren’t technically the same as bread crumbs, raisins, and apples, but the idea is somewhat similar.
Hey, this is empty- let’s put it here!
Nearly every day for the past month I’ve found myself telling Little Bit, “I am going to clean the toy room today!”
But… maybe not.
Each time I set foot across that door’s threshold, I turn around, scrambling for the nearest exit.
Whew, made it out of there!
So, I knew I was going to have to come up with a plan for actually getting something done in there.
Enter Bee Organized With Pamela.
You want to talk about some tips for taming clutter? She’s got amazing ideas.
A few days ago she had a post asking if we wanted to park in our garages this year.
Like, in it?
I can’t remember the last time I could. When I commented, I mentioned the toy room, and she gave me some fabulous tips.
I was all fired up.
Well, despite my “good” intentions, I didn’t get anything done in there that day. At all.
But, for some crazy reason this morning, I had on my imaginary “I can do this” boots.
And, I just have to say, I rocked that room!
I got everything moved out!
Afterwards, I texted my mom. Her response?
“Where’s all the stuff?”
Next on my To-Do List?
Fix the foyer.
Woo hoo! Toy room:
Ugh! The foyer:
