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!
