I just spent the past 4 hours going through bags and bags and bags of stuff in the attic,
sorting it by boy/girl,
pulling out the boys smaller-than-2T clothes for a family in need,
I could clothe a small elementary school!!"
I'm blessed to not have to go major shopping for 7 (or 12) children at the start of every season.
I'm blessed to have friends and neighbors who give me bags
of stuff their kids outgrew that my kids think is AWESOME!
It's like Christmas day around here when I come home
with garbage bags full of "cleaned out my closets"
I wish I was more organized...
I wish The Container Store would show up
with a bull horn
and announce that they are coming to organize my life
into cute polka dot bins
with printed labels
on nice clean stainless steel shelves...
But until then,
I have a "Boys" label,
a "Girls" label,
and two GIGANTIC piles of mostly sorted
bags of clothes underneath.
And I am thankful to know I don't have to go to a mall
