Purging is fun

So I purged 3 bags of clothes from the kids room. There's more to be done, but I had to stop there and do some other stuff. I offered it up on the parenting board, but if the takers don't come by Monday then I'm off to the Bargain Box with my goodies. I mean there's no point in purging if it just sits by the front door for weeks on end. I can't wait to hit S.'s closet and mine and dh's stuff too. Purging is so fun and freeing. It also let me know that we have way way way way (can I say way some more) too many clothes! In the future I will be better about that. I took a careful inventory of what to get for E. to start school. I'm going to get him some socks and unders and make 2 pairs of shorts and 2 more t-shirts. Some people I know (think the muckety mucks) would be appalled, but I found about 4 pairs of jean he could still wear, shirts and several shorts. He's set for awhile and it's nice on the budget I must say. It's nice not to feel compelled to spend spend spend, to take an inventory of what you really need. I have the 3 bags of clothes to donate that prove it.
