Wow! That is amazing amount of projects to get done! You will need a vacation from your vacation.End of week update: Really started the house purge in earnest this week! DH had 12 days off for vaca. (stayed home) and tackled many house projects. Outdoor benches have been redone (although DH was overzealous with the spray paint and now the garage floor will need more scrubbing than he could finish before going back to work - on the next list!). Carpets are shampooed, which resulted in some other stuff getting deep cleaned before putting back (isn't that always the way?). Yard has been super deweeded, edged, insects sprayed for, and is looking tip top. House has been painted (yeah, we didn't sleep much). Annnd, took a huge load of unwanted goodies to the women's & children's shelter (called Safe Harbor here) that we had been working on since day 1 of vaca. That was a massive undertaking, and I feel like we have barely scratched the surface! DS 27 is special needs and has a problem letting anything go (his tshirt collection would rival any woman's closet - it fills his closet and the closet in the spare room that I call the fitness room since all my exercise equip. is there) and that is just one example. Bless him, I just have to find new ways to keep it corralled and organized. The rest of the house is fair game!! I don't care who owns it!! So, due to the extra cost of said projects, no progress has been made towards monetary goals in the past couple of weeks. But I feel like we made wise investments in getting some of this done. Happy weekend!
There is a company, don't know the name but you can probably google it, that takes t-shirts and turns them into a quilt. There are different sizes offered based on the # of t-shirts you have.
When my friend sent me the link, I was SO wishing I held onto all those t-shirts that my kids wore from school, different camps, WDW, etc. Our house isn't very big so we purge often.
