Cleaning House!

Now that we have found a home, we have been slowly starting to go through the house and get rid of things that we don't want to take with us. I know the kids have a lot of clothes and toys that they have outgrown that they don't need anymore and now that I have lost so much weight, even I have a closet full of clothes that could go. It's my goal next week to go through a different room of the house every day and completely purge it top to bottom and pack away what we aren't using right now, donating things we don't want to take with us and hopefully by the time we close on the house, we will be completely ready to go!!!! My husband likes to remind us every day when he leaves for work that we still have lots of stuff to get rid of so that's why I thought it was funny that not one thing of his has gone out the door yet. He has a boatload of tools and similar things in his garage that I am quite certain get very little use yet it's only mine and the kids stuff that he thinks we should be getting rid of. Of course he argued that you never know when you might need a particular tool (like the Mitutoyo 500-196-20 digital caliper, what even IS that???) or that circular saw that is neatly tucked into it's brand new box where it has been for over a year now. He has so many things in that garage that I wouldn't have a clue as to what to use them for.  I am familiar with the screwdriver and drill, that's about it! LOL As I started to look around in the garage, I couldn't believe how much stuff he has and NO way do I want that junk cluttering up our new garage. I mean seriously! I thought my Dad's collection of 1,000+screwdrivers was impressive but my husband 's bazillion wrenches take the cake. What is it about men and tools? I told him I was giving him a week and if I don't notice a significant difference, I am calling Hoarders. LOL  Seriously though. I just think it's funny that he views mine and the kids belongings as "clutter" and wants us to purge yet he wants to keep all of his junk!!!!!  That's a man for ya!!!!!
