This week's theme was not difficult for me. See, 4 months ago, my family got rid of almost everything we owned except for 2 suitcases per person and moved to a different country. If you want motivation for sorting through your stuff, by all means, the best way is to move to a different country and decide to bring almost nothing. (Of course, I don't necessarily recommend this but if you are one of those who don't learn otherwise, this is a good lesson...)
Sad to say, I didn't even think we were pack rats! We threw a lot away and went through our old clothes semi-regularly. So, GO NOW AND AND SORT!!!! Do it EVERY DAY! You don't need it!!! I really mean that! I speak from experience! (Thank you again Eric, Janet, Jane, Rose and John and all others who helped...)
Since trash and donate was a bit difficult for us since we live on so little right now (it is amazing what you think you would die without and get by with like my food processor-oh how I miss you but have managed to cook delicious dinners regardless...) but we did decide to tackle the concept of sort.
We started by color and then by shape. Since I am certain all of you can understand the concept of sort, I will leave my witty commentary out.
Remember, 2-year old attention spans are fleeting and after sorting most of the blocks, he did his little destructive 2-year old thing.
Later, we sorted by type of block with some help from the Parental Units.
Go my minions and sort, trash and donate.
