Spring Cleaning

What is it about long sunny days that makes you want to clean every corner of the house?  Maybe because after the long dark Winter, you can finally see all the dust and clutter?
I don't know, but I too have been hit with the bug.  I want to throw things out.  Under counters, in closets in cupboards I've been searching out things to throw away.  Having a house is just a place to put more stuff I think, and as I look around my little house I realize that it is slowly filling up with stuff.  Not necessarily useful stuff either.  One of the major places the over crowding is occurring is in my Scraproom.  Not a shocker I know, but still.  I spent a good portion of an evening going through just the paper in there.  I have a stack that is ready to be donated.  I know that I have so much more, but one of the issues I have is I want it to go to a good home.  I know that sounds silly, but I have spent money on these supplies and while I may not want to use them, I don't want them just thrown out in the trash either.  I have a place for some of the simpler stuff, but for the other stuff....  I just keep hanging onto it.  My room has become too small for me, mostly because of the extra and unused supplies I keep hanging onto.  When I go to pitch something, there's a little voice in the back of my head saying "but it's still good!  You could turn that into something!"  and things like that.  I have set up 3 garbage bags and a cardboard box, to help purge items out of my room.  The box is for donations and the bags are for recycling.  I am also thinking I need to re-organize my furniture and storage units, but we'll see.
I keep hoping that my husband will wake up one day and decide that my idea of turning our living room into my scraproom is a good idea.  A girl can dream!
