The big clean out!

The big clean out has begun. As I type two teenagers are cleaning out their rooms.
There are bags of cloths that no longer fit or not wanted any more, so they are being put into bags to be handed down to little cousins, and children of friends of ours.
A lot of the cloths were handed down from older children and so are on their third round of usage.
Any that cannot be handed down are used as rags in the mechanical workshop. We always need rags there.
I have save the old jeans and will use them to make a quilt.
I had better go back and supervise because if I don't they will keep everything and not throw out anything.
They are such hoarders my kids.
see ya

That is wonderful. I did allot of yard sales when my kids were small. The were no other family in there age group. So I was not that lucky.

No Cathy they wont nag because they still have heaps of cloths. Although if i find bargans I can't help myself and usually will get them a few things. Nothing too extravigant, but cheap tops or socks and jocks. That sort of thing.
