May 10th National Clean Up Your Room Day

Okay, so our country is in a mess, the world is in a mess, our lives are in a mess and you really can’t do much about it. There is one thing you can make better, you can clean up your room (s) and actually accomplish something.

I sort of like cleaning up messy rooms. I mean if it’s my own mess I find things that I thought were long gone, and if it’s somebody’s then you never know what treasure you might find next. True, most of the surprises are things you really don’t want to find but occasionally there is that rare gems in there among the trash.

And once it is cleaned up it makes you feel so much better and you have that sense of accomplishment. “Look at what I did!” You can even give guided tours if you want!

Of course if you are a pack-rat like me, then you have some tough decisions to make. You simply can’t keep it all, something has to go. And just putting all of it into another room and trashing it is not an answer. This is truly what garage sales are made for.

I have been told that if you haven’t used the item in a year it’s time for it to go. The biggest problem with that is the stuff you haven’t used in a year is buried under all that stuff you have used in a year! If you sell it off at least you have gotten some value from it, money to probably buy more junk with! Well, whatever you are going to do, today is your day to start doing it!

How to celebrate [ Plan a garage sale to get rid of what you don;t need or want. Check your wardrobe for items that won;t even fit you anymore. (Yes, I know you are planning on losing weight and you may use it again but by then it will be so out of fashion you won’t want to be sen in it anyway! Have a clean up your room party! (Just make sure there is nothing in there that you don’t want found!)
