1,100 things gone, only 8,900 to go
I cleaned out the car today. Here are the highlights:
Poor Batman. Yes, that’s a fry.
Clearly it was time as my son’s friend commented yesterday: “No offence, but your car is really gross.”
He was right. There were 75 things inside my car. 30 of them were relocated but 45 made my list of things I got rid of today. Or did they?
Does stuff from the car count?
Darn right it does – if you spent as much time cleaning it as I did! Plus, those are 45 things my husband would have found a special place for eventually.
I’m making a concerted effort to stop using my car as a junk depository. My kids are big enough to do their part. We may never completely abolish car snacking but they know now that wrappers go in the garbage – not on the floor!
Oh, and my son, the youngest who, if you remember, resisted my cleaning project a couple days ago, asked me today: “Mom, how my room get so clean? I lub it!”
And that’s a good enough reason to keep going. Don’t you think?
What I tossed today: 45 things from the car, 25 things from my youngest’s closet, 30 pcs. cardboard and mixed paper
