Just for the Joy of it: The Great Purge

Today came with a huge decision to make: Harris Teeter Triple coupons or clean the house. Now, if you know me or have been following Madame Deals, I have a very hard time resisting a good deal! I long for Harris Teeter triples! On the other hand, my children’s toys are taking over the house. I can not stand it an longer.

So, I made the decision to stay home and begin the “great purge”! I am simply tired of all of the clutter and frankly, the kids do not play with half of the toys anyways. I have thrown away a huge bag full of “stuff” today. Some toys will be donated and others will be sold. I am still in the middle of this great task and I really do dislike cleaning. However, the end result gives me great joy! I really do love a clean house. It is funny how a clean house can lift my spirits! Not to mention, I have dinner in the crockpot and it smells really yummy!

Although, in the back of my mind I am still thinking about all of the deals to be had at HT, (yes, I am kind of obsessed!) it brings me more joy knowing that there is actually room to store all of the items I buy! A little self-control is a good thing!

    You go Girl! A big purge can make a world of difference. I just did that with my fall wardrobe and I was dumbstruck by how many nice clothes I had at the bottom of my drawers… it took the purging for me to remember that they were there!

    I hope HT’s deals will still be there over for the weekend too!

    Good for you! That’s always a great thing to do in fall before the influx of new Christmas presents.
    I know it can be a stinky chore, but it always feels so good when you’re done.
    I hope you can still get your deals and then you’ll feel doubly good about all that you got done.
