What do you call "spring cleaning" if it happens in December? I'm thinking "old, broken toys and worn, too-small clothes massive throw out." Although that doesn't have QUITE the same ring to it... And yet, this is what I find myself doing in the weeks leading up to Christmas, as I know the girls are going to be receiving lots of new gifts (Santa is generous) in addition to the loot from grandparents and relatives. And when you live in a small apartment, you simply can't keep EVERYTHING (actually, this should be a general rule for everyone, I think, regardless of how large your home).
It's all too easy to let things pile up, to stuff broken toys in the toy box and forget about them, to let the art work stack grow larger and larger, to keep shifting unworn clothes to the bottom of the closet. Believe me, I know. The approaching holidays are the perfect time to get rid of all the excess, in preparation for the gift-giving bonanza ahead.
After throwing out some junk in my girls "play area" (a corner of our living room... when you live in an apartment, that's your "play room"), I quickly discovered dust bunnies had multiplied quickly in all corners and were lurking underneath bookshelves, too. One early Christmas gift has arrived already, and I wanted to get the floor really clean before we set it up. In addition to organizing and dusting off bookshelves, etc.
