 I have been cleaning out the old place and didn't realize how many clothes we left there I was sure we got them all when we moved. 

 I have been doing laundry for over a week and today I have everyone going through all the clothes to see what they want to keep and the rest will be put in a yard sale this weekend. 

 I have been bringing home about a dozen loads a day so it will be a big sale and after all this work I  think we will use the money to do something fun.

Everyone is cleaning their room for other things to add so hopefully we can make enough to go somewhere fun for the night.

 I simply cannot deal with yard sales.  Nothing is sold.  I used to like going to flea markets to sell things but now they want to charge a tax on everything.

 Where we used to live yard sales weren't worth it even if you advertised but here they do great even without advertising just need a sign in the yard

I'm waiting to find out if I need to do regular spring cleaning or getting ready to move spring cleaning.  If we do end up moving I may try having a yard sale even though I detest them.  Having been here for 7 years (the longest we have lived anywhere in the last 21 years) we have accumulated a lot of things that I will need to get rid of before we leave.

Yes!   Dh has been cleaning out the garage and his shop.....he has taken 3 loads to the dump and 2 loads to Goodwill.     I have cleaned out the hall storage closet and am currently working on the Master Bedroom closets.    This house must be purged!

 We moved and just moved what we needed I finally went back to get the rest packed up and that is most of what I am selling.  I just couldn't get motivated before.

If we do move it will be several states away if not accross the country so everything will need to be purged before we leave. I sure do understand the lack of motivation though.

No.. It's too cold here. My first spring cleaning I like to open all the windows.. It's still raining and snowing here...

I deep clean my house once a week, but spring cleaning...no.
