Can you say Christmas OVERLOAD?


Well I have ALWAYS been a Christmas nut. But My GOSH I didn't know that I had gone completely nuts over the last 10 yrs. Up until this evening I had 2 LARGE Dishpack boxes ya know the giant ones? And 7 TUBBIES!!!
Good Night Nurse that is A LOT of CHRISTMAS stuff!!
Soo for two days I have been sorting, unwrapping and re-wrapping all this stuff. I am so very proud of myself at the moment because, I am down to two LARGE dish pack boxes since they are so heavy and stack nice. And two Tubbies not including the nativity set. That is a third tubby. I went through everything with a open heart. One just can't keep everything. I have to get the clutter out of here. Michael and I are talking that we might want to move in a few years, closer to town. The clutter has taken over my life and I simply have too much stuff. I want a nice neat house with less stuff. So out the door it goes. Have all the rooms to go through but one at a time.
Now the fun really begins. Putting all the stuff for the eldest in a tubby. DD stuff in a small box cause she only wants a tiny tree and then packing all the other stuff off to goodwill. After the snow clears that is . Right now it is just pure snot. Slippery stuff out there now. Slush on top of solid packed ice. ACK!

Hi Pea,
Thanks for stopping by my blog to visit. I am also feeling to need to get rid of some clutter...I find that the older I get, the more simple I want things to be.

Have a Happy New Year and wishing you lots of wonderful blessings in 2009.

I'm a collector of clutter. Guess I'll always be. Hard to give it away.

what a perfect tree - girl, I can so relate to the tubs but must admit, mine aren't dwindling at all! *sigh* I'm such a clutterbug too!

Cindy,
Yes a birthday is fast approaching and I will be OLD-ER again. LOL
I need to get organized so I can have more time to create.
Wonderful blessings for you as well.

carla,
the clutter has taken over and nothing that is IMPORTANT is showing up. Sooo I am getting rid of stuff that has no special meaning.
Hugs,Pea

Cookie,
Ah thank you so much cookie. This is last years tree. I didn't get the pics from my BF before she left.:( I have to keep the special stuff! so by getting rid of the stuff that I bought I can keep the goodies from family and friends. Then the decorations have more meaning.
I need more time to create. Instead of being such a stuff shifter of stuff from one room to another! LOL
Your home is PERFECT! Clean and doesn't look cluttered at ALL!
Hugs,Pea
