As I was cleaning Cody’s playroom closet out (and I just cleaned it out in August) to take toys he’s outgrown or doesn’t play with anymore to Goodwill, and make room for what he may get for Christmas, I was reminded of a time when he made a “Crazy and Wild” mess…
Yep, my little cutie (he was two) was standing on his toy chest and pulling off books. He has always loved books and he was so stinkin’ cute, I couldn’t get mad. So what else does a doting mother do… take pictures, of course.
Okay this mess didn’t need to be put into Glad trash bags, but it was such a great memory, I had to share. Besides, I don’t seem to have pictures of the real messes he made. Probably because I was so aggravated in the moment that I was just thinking about cleaning it up. 🙂
But I digress.
As I was saying, Cody’s playroom closet (his entire playroom, really) is a mess. Around this time every year I go through it to see if there are toys, etc., that are still in good shape that we can donate/give away. I’m glad (pun intended) to have Glad Black Trash bags for cleaning out his playroom. And if I don’t have any boxes, I use the trash bags to take the toys to Goodwill.
I used all my empty boxes for the Salvation Army Stockings at school this year, so thank goodness for the trash bags. Going through our closets a couple times a year is a good way to keep down on clutter. The sad thing is, I cleaned out his playroom closet in August for a yard sale. It was really embarrassing then.
So as you can tell my son is a bit, messy. I keep telling myself, “He’s a boy. A kid.” And although I hate the messes… I wouldn’t change them for anything in the world. One day he will leave home, and I guarantee you, I’ll miss these messes.
Anyway, as you can see I made use of my Glad trash bags. I need strong and sturdy trash bags, especially with some of the awkward shapes of the toys that went into the bag. Not to mention the bag was heavy.
Now time to work on the garage… which will probably take three to four bags to clean up. Ugh!
I appreciate Glad trash bags around the holidays, too. I may be hosting family on Christmas Eve, and need the trash bags to clean up all that mess from the gift opening. And that’s a mess I don’t mind.
