1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12




For the last two days I've been bagging up clothes that we don't wear or don't fit anymore for the Deseret Industries clothing drive that's going on in our stake this week. I wish I could say that I'm doing this for those in need but, I have been overwhelmed with our excess clothes for months never being able to put away my clean laundry because of an overflowing closet. When it was all said and done I had twelve bags of clothes, twelve! Now my closet doors and my dresser drawers can close. Woohoo!

First! EVER!

Love the new site name! Love the video! And LOVE that you've been able to make room in your home and remove excess you didn't need! You've inspired me to do the same.

Love your name! So clever!!

Twelve bags is a lot of clothes. You have just made some people very happy! It's also a lot of work!

Love the video, too! You are just way cool, Carrie!

I love everything......the blog....the name.....the look....and most especially YOU!

My last bloggy break was orchestrated in an effort to clear out some crap from my house. Like you, I got rid of 12 bags to charity and another 6 bags that went straight to the trash.

18 bags of stuff gone and my hosue is STILL a mess. Sad.

Yeah for you! I need to do the same thing at my house. I keep doing it, but it keeps accumulating faster.

Oh and I love your new blog--especially the name.

Nobody said...

TWELVE!! Wow. I bet that felt so good to eliminate from your closets.

Love the new look and the new name.

I recently packed up 12 bags of cothing, shoes and etc to get rid of, but we still have more to get rid of before dressers and such won't be overstuffed.
I'm so excited about your new blog! But now I have that song stuck in my head...
Hush, hush...

Because no one has said this yet: I love the new name, look and everything! Congrats :)

YAY for decluttering! More room for more stuff.

I have a question...How come it doesn't have a link to make a comment from the main page? I had to click on this post itself to get to a comment link. Is it set up that way? Or is it because you only have one post up so far? I think you should post again so we can find out?

You know Heff I've been wondering the same thing. I was hoping that it was just my computer. Thanks for the advice. It looks like it was only the first post((HUGS)).

Doesn't it feel great to do that? Almost like a weight has been taken off my shoulders.

OOH I totally remember that song. I still sing it from time to time! That sounds about like me when I moved to the sand box. I probably gave away the equivalent of winter clothing...and it was all.mine. There's really only one or two pieces I still lament not dragging along with me, but I guess I'll get over it...one day.
