My mom's house

 My parents are spending this month in Texas with my sister.  My brother and sister in law recently moved into their house.  My sil doesn't work and they don't pay rent.  My parents are no longer physically able to keep up with much more then the dishes.  SIL planned to help out but when she moved in, she was over whelmed.  That house is so horrible.  So since they are gone I've told her I will come over once a week and help tackle an area. 

We started last week and I found emails my dad had saved from 1995.  In the linen closet we found that when mom got new bathroom rugs she'd put the old sets in the closet.  There were 5 sets and the plastic was all hard and crusty on all of them. 

This week we will delve into the many tubs in the office full of more bedding.  I'll try and remember a picture before we start.  Wish me luck!

What's a big cleaning project you tackled and how did you go about it?

 Yes, that's what we are trying here.  One pile at a time.

Sounds like a big job ahead, but so worth it in the end!

That's a big cleaning project. I tackle big projects one room at a time and just barrel through it.

Moving is a whole different challenge. Thankfully I've only done it twice as an adult and I don't plan in doing it ever again.
