Closet Clean Out


As 2012 drew to a close, we went through our usual end-of year things: gifts to charity, deciding if we even want to think about resolutions this year, organizing all our 2012 financial information so we don't have to file an extension come April 15th, cursing whoever invented "vacations" and wondering when school would start again...

We also went through our master closet and got rid of 5 bags worth of clothes that we never wear.

I save all the kid clothes in space bags labeled by size for future use, so it was just the grown up clothes that needed a quick vetting.

Don't forget to make a lis tof the clothes you are giving away and get a receipt for your taxes! I just jot it all down in a notebook so I have it for future reference.

Hopefully, this is the first step in organzing in 2013. Doesn't it seem like we were *just* organizing last winter?

I do the same thing. Then I take those lists and staple them to the receipts I get from Amvets or Goodwill and put them in a file marked "current year tax donations" (other receipts go in there as well). In fact it's almost time to dog that file out and get to work on the taxes...

We are definitely in need of a good clean out! I got rid of a few of my things a few weeks ago, but there's plenty more we can stand to lose!

We need to do this too! We usually bring the best ones to consignment sales, and they're starting up soon.
