I never thought I'd have so much fun cleaning and clearing out the house from all the excesses that have accumulated throughout the years. In my computer room it's mostly papers & folders, and for the life of me I don't know why I thought I had to copy & print out everything that I read on my computer. I can understand printing out special instructions, but I think I had every joke I was ever sent printed out. What a stack of papers, good riddance. I look around now and say, WOW!

I'm excited about de-cluttering because we're having company soon and because the house is just so much easier to clean when you don't have to dust & move things around so much. There's a corner in my bedroom that I use to pile everything that I don't know where else to put it. In the kitchen I have cabinets filled with baking dishes that I never use, plastic lids that have no mates, and lots of old pots & pans that just need to be tossed out. It's terrible how we accumulate so much stuff and then hold on to it long after its use is complete. I should have started this spring cleaning back in the winter months when the weather was so bad that we couldn't go out, but then it wouldn't have been spring cleaning now would it?

I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am.
