This past weekend I had a little honest talk with myself. The time had come to start cleaning out, and sorting through, the boxes piled up in our second bedroom. Who even knows what the heck is in there?!?

Well I came to terms with myself and realized that if we haven't had the need to get into those boxes since we moved in to this apartment (August 2011), then we probably didn't need most of the things in those boxes.

So I started. The first box I opened had some of my old clothes in it from high school. Whoa. Why have I been hanging on to some of these things? Needless to say, it took me on a little trip down memory lane. After all, I met my hubby in high school. In fact, here is a picture of us on one of the first dates we went on.
I can't help but smile when I look back at this picture. This was taken sometime during our junior year of high school. Now, here we are about 7 years later, hopefully looking a little older and wiser too.

My start to deep cleaning turned into a fun little trip down memory lane, and helped me fill a couple boxes of clothes ready to be taken to the donation center. Wonder what I will find hidden in there next weekend?


  1. Very good point, my mom always had that attitude too- if you haven't looked at it once in the past six months, it probably doesn't mean much to you. That being said- you reminded me of MY extra bedroom that is becoming a junk room. Guess it's time to start going through my boxes as well!

  2. Yeah sometimes it's just so much easier to let things start piling up in another room! Your mom is smart! :)
