Day 1 Decluttering, part 1

Ok, I know yesterday I hinted that I might start in the kitchen, but I found out that a local family lost their home & everything they owned in a fire the day after Christmas. They have girls around the ages of Rory & Brea....so I am starting in their clothes first.



I spied Rory's pajama drawer and it was overflowing...she had 18 pairs of pajamas...how did that happen???? The sad thing is, most of them are in the hamper...she was missing 10 tops, 1 bottom & 1 whole set (her new Christmas pj's).



Here's the pile of them....still missing those 10 tops, 1 bottom & 1 set. Doesn't look like much, but she's only a 3T...we would not have been able to get away with shoving this much into a drawer if it were Caity or Jacob.



Here are the 6 pairs that completely matched.



Here are the things missing mates...



Here is her newly organized pj drawer....it's still missing 4 tops & 1 bottom & her new Christmas pj's that are going to be kept. If that makes it too full, she will be getting rid of more.



So, I took 6 of the pants that were awaiting matches and set aside for this family. As soon as I wash the tops and match them back up, they will go into the giveaway bag.

Wow, Rory, I don't think you need that many pairs of pj's, unless you are gonna go on a trip that lasts 18 days.

Great job, Cherylann!!

Thx. Lol, yes, she had way too many....hand-me-down's from Caity & Brea.

I still think she has too many, but we'll see how we handle what she has left.
