What a MESS!

February 9, 2021

.

Mummy is in the middle of “organizing” a closet where she keeps all of her gift wrapping supplies, and she has asked me to help her sort thru the “keep it” and the “trash it” stuff. OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS A DISASTER! I told her to TRASH IT ALL!

Hi Millie,
Glad to see you are helping mummy. It is not to bad…I am sure you will be a big help and have it done in no time. Then you can play with your sisters. You should see my store room. I clean it all up and say I am never going to let it get messing again and and then I look for something and another mess. Take care everyone and be safe.

I don’t know what she would do without me!!! I am telling her to TRASH everything. So far I haven’t told her to KEEP anything. Well… there was ONE gift bag that had cute doggies on it. I voted to KEEP that! Lololol

Gift wrapping supplies is the worst! In our tiny house it takes over space we can’t afford Millie! I threw most of it away except enough for two emergency all occasion wraps and ribbons….it keeps trying to sneak back in every time I need a new wrap or get a gift in a nice gift bag-you have to watch it closely-stay on guard!

Oh Millie, that looks like what I had to throw away just a year ago. So glad you are able to help mommy. Sometimes us mommies get carried away, and never think about what’s going to happen in a year or so.

Well, you know, you get a nice box or gift bag and keep it.. then you get a few more and keep them… and before long this is what you have! But we have it mostly contained now! Lol

So I would recommend that your mommy put you in a little package and send you to me 🙂 I will take good care of you 🙂 I know mommy would never do that but you are so adorable! I hope your cleaning goes well! It is amazing how fast that stuff piles up!

If it’s just a closet it is not too bad. Mine is the back half of the garage, and laundry room shelves depending upon what i need to wrap. I do need to just throw away cause I always end up buying more when it’s time to wrap something anyway. Give mom grace and help her out.
Hugs and Love

Mummy would often buy more too… because this stuff was just piled on top of each other and she couldn’t find what she needed!!! Now she is moving everything to a large walk-in closet where it will be neatly kept in one place!

When you are finished helping mummy, please tell us some helpful tricks we could use ourselves.

Millie LaRue

My most helpful tip is to be ruthless and just start tossing stuff out!!! Mummy has saved soooo many gift bags and boxes thinking that she will used them and she has only used a FEW because she saved sooooo much stuff that it became overpowering and she could never find anything in the cluttered closet!

Start organizing your things into little bins where you can SEE WHAT YOU HAVE… and start throwing out the scraps that seriously you will never use!!!

Lolololol Mummy is converting a walk-in closet into a gift wrapping closet with cabinets and countertops so we have decluttered all of the mess and now need to wait for the cabinets to be installed to get it all finished. But we are almost there!!!

At least Mommy knows where her stuff is. I put things away and then don’t remember where I put them. You can have it cleaned up in no time. Happy Valentine’s Day.

Oh Millie you make the messiest of messes look beautiful! I haven’t seen you in awhile. Not sure if you remember me but I met you when you came to Minnesota. I had dinner with your Mommy and Daddy at Charlie’s on Prior Lake. I have beautiful pictures of you and your sisters. Even some of your wonderful parents!
Just writing to you is bringing me to tears remembering of much happier times. I lost my precious Bella 2 weeks before Christmas. My heart is broken.

Millie, I have been preparing to move for a solid year now. I have trashed so much and sent tons to Goodwill. And, my house still looks like a bomb went off. I may need your help soon. I am still knee deep in stuff.

Oh sweet Millie,
Do you really mean for her to trash it all? Some of it MIGHT be worth keeping, because we must remember that your Mummy has excellent taste in gifts and gift wrapping! What did the two of you decide to do? Miss Ivy and I would like to know.

She did have some cute doggie wrapping paper… I voted to KEEP that. And she had a few doggie gift bags that I voted to KEEP! Then Mummy took over and decided to keep lots of other stuff. We threw out tons of trash though so it’s good. I will take a picture of the new “gift-wrapping room” when we get it all set up. We are having new cabinets and counters installed and it will be super organized!!! Mummy is really excited!
