Since our last helper left us in December, the task of general housecleaning every weekend falls on my shoulders. It takes me hours just to dust every nook and cranny of our small condo unit, not to mention my son’s personal stuff. His toys are everywhere, some of which have no use for him anymore because he has outgrown them. So I decided last Sunday to rummage through my son’s toy box and get the toys that he doesn’t play with anymore so that other kids in my parents’ neighborhood could benefit from them. Everything was done with my son’s permission, of course.
The house felt so much lighter without those toys. I should have discarded them sooner. What about you? Have you done some de-cluttering lately?
