Cleaning Time Again

It's spring cleaning time again! The best way for me to achieve this is when everyone else at home is asleep.

Today is my prelude to my major spring cleaning. I woke up at 3:00 a.m. to clear the linen closet first and throw away unused stuff for ages. I would love to donate them but wear and tear has gotten the best of the items. I feel bad throwing them but I have to. It's the only way to sever the "attachment" we tend to establish with our material possessions.

I managed to clear the linen closet and some of the knick-knacks lying around the living area. I just don't know what to do now with my bookcases and the books in it.

Next will be the bedroom and the closets. I swear, there are more to dispose and probably ship back to Manila for my younger nieces and nephews to play around with. I have already sold my old clothes and bags and I could not believe I still have more! Although half of the clothes I kept were my fashionable outfits which my daughter is wearing these days. I can save them for her. The rest which will not fit me anymore (and I doubt if they ever will!) will definitely be sacked!

I'm just waiting for the summer to come so I can really clear away the unnecessary stuff. If my daughter sees me cleaning (that's the reason why I woke up at 3:00 a.m. so she wouldn't bug me) and throwing stuff, she'll later pick up some of them later on when I am not paying attention. Next thing I know it, some stuff are back in the house.

I hope there's a clear button to press so I don't have to do this tedious task. I know, down the line, other things will be bought again and will end up in the next year's junk!
