We have an annual tradition called the Big Clean. It should probably apply to every room in the house, but it really just applies to the children’s rooms.
But, they probably are the rooms that need it the worst.
So, sometime right after school gets out, we get serious. The room is emptied to the bare walls, usually except for the bed frame.
Then, from the living room staging area, every single item must be touched and either put away, given away, thrown away…
Sparkle Jane worked really hard. She emptied her room quickly and then started sorting. Before the day was over she filled three trash cans, three recycling cans and five bags to charity. And, the room looks so much better.
We rearrange the furniture, just to give it a fresh look.
She has dedicated sewing space.
And a peaceful, clean place to enjoy.
We went out for Italian Ice afterwards. A well-earned treat. No swimming today. Hopefully tomorrow.
