Trash Terminating Thirsty Thursday

Get on it! Do some purging, whether it be your mom-ed out car, the junk drawer, the medicine cabinet, last night's dinner or the whole house.

Fly Lady would say to get a trash bag and set a timer for 5 minutes and go around and throw away at least 27 things, quickly.

I've got a lot more than 27 things. I'm also going to start a major and serious garage sale pile and I will actually have a garage sale. Sometime soon. Hopefully by the end of March. We'll see.

I was thinking I needed a snazzy nickname when being the NLP:RD Director. So I'm going to be the Chore Whore when I'm giving you Flyladyish tidbits.

So the Chore Whore says go put on your bra and throw some shit away.

We'll meet back here later and share some of our best cleaning/organization tips. Well, I won't share because I don't have any but maybe someone has some advice for some of us? Anyone?

Can you add a "Dear Abby" type day to the NLP:RD?

Dear Chore Whore,

My 3yo son has been calling his sisters Poopy Head. How do I get him to stop?

I've been super productive this week. I'm not sure that I'm really doing what I'm supposed to be doing each day for the NLP: RD, but this week I've decided to just go balls to the wall and try to get caught up on a bunch of crap, and then starting next week I'll be able to go forward in Maintenance Mode. Maybe. I'm waiting for the carpet cleaners to arrive now - this morning I've been moving everything off the carpets. Any furniture I can lift/push, all toys, pillows, tables, chairs, etc. It was a huDge job, but I know I'll be so happy with how things look tonight when everything is put back and the carpets are clean. :) Woo hoo. I'm also going to take my car to the self-wash place and vacuum it out really well.

I must be butter, 'cuz I'm on a roll!

I'm doing it! I'm doing it! I'm working on cleaning out the nursery this morning. No easy task, lemme tell ya... I'm wiping things down, sorting clothes, organizing all the brightly colored plastic shit... The whole nine yards. Then I plan on moving on to big girl's playroom. Maybe.

Chore Whore. Priceless.

My Trashy chore will literally be taking out the trash! All of our wastebaskets are overflowing right now and the baby's Diaper Champ might be considered a noxious fumes candidate at this point.

I brought the trash can into my kids' bedroom this morning and went at it! crazy the crap my 7yo thinks he must cherish.

I'm about to send him into the backyard to pick up all the stuff the stupid dog pulled out of the shed and tore up (like 4 months ago, but she quit humping her water bucket when she found a carpet scrap, and that kept me from having to fill up the stupid bucket daily)

delegating is good!

I took a load of stuff to Once Upon a Child made $55, so my trash termination was profitable!
