Thanks to a great friend…

tt-sorting-clothes.jpgI have this huge bag of clothes for Olivia!

Before our friends moved, they gave us this big bag of their daughter’s old clothes. Because they were moving across the country, they didn’t want to take anything extra with them. So they gave us all of the clothes and told me to take what I wanted and to give the rest away.

So, tonight I am sorting through them and choosing what we need. The rest I will donate to goodwill.

I will put up the Mr. Linky now in case I am sorting into the wee hours tonight. When I am finished I will update with my “after” photos.

UPDATED: Okay – here is my after shot. (The pile on the couch is what we are keeping. I just need to wash them now. The rest of the clothes in the bag will be heading to goodwill.)

Join Us For Tackle It Tuesday

We’re making housework blog-able!

Each week on Tuesday, we are posting before and after pictures of a project or trouble area that we tackled this week.

Find out more about Tackle It Tuesday here.

The project can be little or big – whatever you want. Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done. (It doesn’t even have to be housework… just whatever is on your To Do list.)

If you tackled a project this week, just add a comment and add your link below.

That reminds me I have a few bags in the garage that I need to go through, that can be next weeks tackle :)

We recieve lots of hand-me-downs from friends and family, being a big family I think they feel sorry for us…. hehehehe!

I’ll be tackling the basic household chores….dishes, laundry, vacuuming, dusting, etc. My husbands grandparents are coming to stay for a week, and I’ve been sick for the last 4 days (and still am, but it must get done). This bug has kicked me bad, and its gonna be a month before I’m back in the swing of things I think…..I just recently got caught up after my kids had the same thing 2 weeksa go! ACK!

10 Morning Rose February 19, 2008 at 10:26 am

It’s great to get free kid clothes! My tackle is up on the roof this week. :)

Great Tackle! Thanks for letting us tackle with you!


15 Amy February 19, 2008 at 11:54 am

What a good accomplishment for you! I tackled my old cell phone and it’s good to know that it will be for a good cause.


16 Christine - From Dates to Diapers February 19, 2008 at 1:21 pm

What a fun tackle! You’re bound to find some great stuff in that bag!


17 Kristen Welch February 19, 2008 at 2:27 pm

When I started thinking about all the things I tackle in a single day, even I was surprised. Look at all the things we moms tackle!


18 Lylah Ledner February 19, 2008 at 3:22 pm

I’m tackling our library, my section of the garage, and creating sanctuary in our master bedroom . . . and making a few other “touch downs.” :-)


19 Lynne February 19, 2008 at 3:31 pm

I have boxes of clothes I need to go through, ugh!


20 Stephanie February 19, 2008 at 4:00 pm

That is one BIG bag of clothes! What a nice friend!


21 donetta February 19, 2008 at 4:16 pm

Neither toil for the Lord even know what the sparrow has need of :) I have watched so many things of this nature. It is such a wonderful thing to have the open hands to both give and receive. Ya!


22 Wendy February 19, 2008 at 5:40 pm

I had the same tackle last year when I received more hand-me-downs for my baby girl than I could ever use, some still with the tags on!

Just wanted to make one possible suggestion. Rather than goodwill, you might consider giving them to a crisis pregnancy center. They do a great work helping women to make a choice for life, and can really use donated baby items. Just an idea. :)


23 Mandie February 19, 2008 at 6:32 pm

It’s always great to get free kids clothes, they grow so fast, not to mention ruin a lot of them while playing :)

My Tackle in organizing my desk draws today, Argh :/

I tackled my fridge! I think it looks great. Let me know what you think.


27 Shauntelle February 19, 2008 at 9:42 pm

I tackled my laundry! Five loads washed, folded, and put away… :)


28 corrin February 19, 2008 at 9:55 pm

That was really nice of your friends and good of you to take the extra to Goodwill!


29 Suzanne February 19, 2008 at 11:02 pm

Multiply that bag of clothes by 10 and you’ve got my eBay room! Good work. Looks like Goodwill is going to get some good stuff from you.
