|Oh my gosh. This is such a funny cartoon.|
I was expressing to my mom of my frustrations of only having two computers for schooling the kids. They have book work and online work so it's been tough sharing it between four kids, a blogging mommy, and a daddy who loves computers too. Some days I'm not able to get on the computer till way later which is fine, but I have to check for reviews and adjustments sometimes. Regardless, their homeschool comes absolutely first. Well, my mom took one of our older laptops home with her to do some work on it. It's a good laptop but just had some problems and would constantly disconnect from the internet. I eventually gave up on it and put it away. She fixed it up so now we'll have 3 working computers. Yeehaw! Thank yewwww!
2. Get a bag or box labeled "Giveaway" and "Throwaway". Then I put back what was obvious of what was going back into the room and I would put it back immediately. As I was filling up the room with my favorites and for sure staying, I knew quickly when to stop because I loved how nice it looked. I didn't want to reclutter it because the room looked so beautiful without all that stuff! It made it sooo easy to throw all the rest out.
3. At the end of the day take a break and go donate the stuff. If you want to do a yard sale make sure to take the stuff OUT of the house completely. I put everything onto our back patio.
4. Each day I did one room and I did not stop for 8 days. I made sure each room was completely and totally done with all the messes cleaned up from it before starting the next room. We ate very, very simple that week because I didn't need to be making bigger messes that would make me feel discouraged.
5. If you blog, blog your successes! After my whole house was finished, since I didn't want to do a yard sale but my friend did, she came and picked up all the stuff off my patio.
