Project Organize- The School Stuff
So this past week I tackled our school stuff. We have a lot! Remember, I have been schooling our kids at home since my almost 19 year old was four! That is 15 years of stuff and 13 grades of curriculum and all of the stuff that goes along with that endeavor. As we have entered our last round of school, our youngest is halfway through kindergarten, I knew it was time to purge a few of the extras. OK, a lot. While I want to keep stuff for my kids to be able to use should they decide to homeschool their own children, some of the stuff was extra or had been replaced by newer things. (YEA TOS CREW reviews!)
No judging please, but here is what several areas looked like-
And here are the afters-
A whole van load of stuff went to our co op to hopefully bless others and a few things went into a new and growing stack for Goodwill. This project was hard for me, guys! I love having the privilege of schooling my children and there are many memories packed up in those books and boxes. BUT, I kept reminding myself that I can hold onto memories with out holding onto things!
Feels good! Not to mention, we are probably one hundred pounds lighter for our move. No exaggeration! Yea me! ;)
