My oldest son's bookcase hasn't been tidied in awhile. He's outgrown a lot of the books in it. It was time for me to pick those out and pass them down to his little brother. I won't even mention the layer of dust on everything.
He couldn't find anything in this mess. Notice the dirty sock on the middle shelf - lol.
This is a small stack of books that went right into my middle son's bookcase. He's not ready for some of them, but they can hang out there for the time being. I also packed away a small box of Magic Treehouse books and comics that I'll pull out in a year or two.
And, I put four pounds of magazines, old workbooks and papers into the recycling basket. FOUR POUNDS! Can you believe it? I don't know what possessed me to weigh it, but I think it might be neat to start tallying what I toss everyday.
