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!
Oh ms. Joan… how does something like this EVEN HAPPEN????
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.
LOLOLOL Mummy says that ALL
THE TIME too!!!! She said that “this time” she is SERIOUS and will NEVER let it get out of control again. Hmmmmm…
Oh ms Phyllis… you cannot IMAGINE this mess! Even SHE is wondering WHY she has kept so much of this stuff! She already has a few trash bags filled with GARBAGE!!!
Millie, I am sure that you are a big help to your Mom,
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
We need to clean out our gift wrap stuff. No fun!
We have thrown out several bags of TRASH so far. We are making good progress!!!
Too cute! Mummy is so creative I’m sure there are some special supplies in that container!
Love your adorable sweater! Stay warm and keep safe!
Thank you… she has soooo much junk, er uh… “creative stuff” that she INTENDED to use but just never got around to using. I am helping her LET IT GO!!!
Poor mummy would be at her wits end if you weren’t there to help! My mummy starts.. then quits by tossing everything! 😂😂
Lololol well we are keeping lots if stuff… but TONS OF STUFF is getting TRASHED. So it is pretty amazing to see these garbage bags that are piling up!
When you get finished at your house I sure could use your help Millie! 💕
Lolololol I think my skills will be in HIGH DEMAND! As long as you know, I am ruthless!!! When Mummy asks, “Keep? Or Trash?” I say TRASH IT!!!
LOL….you are such a good helper Millie. Tell Mummy it happens to the best of us. LOL.
That is good to know. We have made great progress today! All of this stuff is being moved into a larger closet that she is turning into a GRAND GIFT WRAPPING CLOSET!!!
Oh Millie, I NEED your help, I am such a pack rat! I am always saving a bag or scrap thinking I will find a use for it! This is definitely the time to start clearing out the junk with all the time we are spending at home! Hugs to you and your sisters❤️❤️❤️❤️
That is how Mummy found herself in this mess! She has DOZENS of gift bags and enough WINE BAGS to open up a WINE STORE… SERIOUSLY!!!
LOL! I’M SURE YOU WILL HAVE IT ALL CLEARED OUT IN NO TIME!!! AND I LOOOOVE YOUR PRETTY DRESS AND HAIR PIN!!! DON’T GET DIRTY CLEARING ALL THAT OUT! BTW, I REALLY DON’T THINK YOU SHOULD BE WORKING, YOU SHOULD JUST BE SUPERVISING…YOU LOOK TOO NICE TO RUMMAGE. LOL. GOOD LUCK!
Lolololol don’t worry. I’m not working up a sweat. My job is only to say KEEP IT or TRASH IT. Mostly I have been saying, TRASH IT! Lololololol
LOL!!! GREAT JOB!!!
Thank you! I am hanging in there to keep Mummy motivated!
I can see you are just so much help! tee hee
Lol I think I help to encourage Mummy to get rid of some of this stuff. Sometimes she tends to “re-organize” the same old stuff into neat piles… but fails to throw away much. Today, we have thrown away A TON OF STUFF… so SUCCESS!!!
Oh Millie , Mommy’s closet for gift wrap looks like mine! It’s snowing here , maybe I should clean mine out too!!! Xoxo
If you are snowed-in… then this might be a good activity for you today! Mummy said she is already feeling better! One messy closet is almost done!
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!
I know! I know! That’s the truth!!!! Mummy has saved dozens and dozens of gift bags now! She won’t LIVE LONG ENOUGH to use up all of these gift bags!!!!
I just did this& it is a mess
Ohhhhhh so you know!!!! We are almost done. Mummy is setting up a whole new area for just her gift wrapping supplies… and now it will be totally organized!!!
😂🤣 thank you for the laugh! Stay safe! We love you guys ❤😘🐾
We hope that you are safe and well. KISS KISS
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
I don’t think Mummy could do it without you! ❤
Ohhhh for sure… she could not!
I bet you didn’t but she is had to say no to.
We are almost done! We have a few more ribbons and bows to sort through and then two bins of wrapping paper!
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!
Lololololol well, she DOES have a box big enough to out me in because we have just finished sorting through all of the BOXES just now!!! We are almost done… yipppeee.
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.
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!
That’s what my crochet craft closet looks like!! Please come and help me next! 😊💖
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!!!
I’ve straightened up a few things in the last month but my house still resembles…… there was a struggle…. LOL
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.
We will have a nice and organized gift-wrapping room when it is all done! Everything will be in one place and easy to find!
Happy Valentines Day to you too. KISS KISS
Oh dear such a mess. Just keep her contented and nod and smile sweetly and you will be DOUBLY rewarded with treats AND snacks
We are sooooo close to being finished!!! Mummy is very excited.
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.
Ms Cindy… I most certainly DO REMEMBER YOU!!!! Very well actually!!! Mummy mentions you quite often when talking about our past trips and she mentions that trip and the dinner that we had on the pier! It was such a great meet-up and you gave us a sweet gift basket too! We are all soooo very sorry to hear about little Bella. That is heart-breaking to hear and we cannot tell you enough how sorry we are. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. 😘💔🐶😥
Millie LaRue Mummy is so Lucky to have you helping her out. But maybe you could Salvage a Few items. But you would know Best. I’m sure your Mummy will go through it all. Loving Hugs to you all.
We have saved a lot of nice things but there were plenty of things that just needed to GO… like TO THE GARBAGE!
Millie you are inspiring me to work on my closet with gift wrapping supplies. Could sure use some help!!!!!
Ohhhhh you will really feel like you have accomplished something!!!! Just tackle that ONE CLOSET!!! And then next week, maybe you can take on a messy cabinet or junk drawer!!! Lolololol
Hi Millie cute picture. Now is the time to start over with new stuff. have a great day. XOXO
We only have a few more bags of things to go through and then we are DONE! YIPPPEEE!!
So glad you’re there to keep Mummy on task!!
We are almost done and it feels so good to have this huge task completed!
Oh my Millie!! I am so glad you are there to help Mummy! You look so precious sitting among the decorations. I hope you can finish your project soon and there is a treat for you for helping!!❤️
I’ve been concerned about you. I’m only receiving one of these little news articles about you once every couple of months. Is everything going all right???
Thank you… everything is fine and I am not sure why you are only getting the occasional email notification. Maybe some of them go into your SPAM folder? I am glad to hear from you today though and hope that you are doing well.
I’m sure you’ll help her make a good decision and organize all that stuff and then you can come and help me😊😊😍
Lololololol Mummy has plans now to move on to more closets! I think she is motivated by her success with this one now.
OMG… my mom has the same situation here… the situation is.. that it’s difficult to trash things… since she always says… they can be useful for “something” hahahha 😉 Kissesssss
Yes!!!! That is how Mummy found herself in THIS SITUATION…. but she never used most of the things!!!
Hi Millie! Lucy and Maggie (especially hyper-puppy Maggie) love to help me clean-up the gift wrap area after Christmas. Maggie steals bows and hides them in her bed! Kisses!!
Lololololol you have good helpers too!!!
I’ve got a lot of that to be done. I got COVID Christmas Day. I was in hospital long time. I’ve not got to do any of this kind of things. Stay well. Stay safe.
🐾🐾 🐾🐾 🐾🐾 🐾🐾 🐾🐾
Oh ms Charlotte I am so very sorry and hope that you are feeling better now! We have been staying close to home and haven’t gone out too much. Mummy is going to try and find a few more cleaning projects to tackle after this one is completed. Please take it easy and get better!!!!
You such a big help
Thank you. I am really trying to keep Mummy on task. She tends to KEEP everything and I am encouraging her to TRASH IT! We are a good team!
If only Mummy let you take care of the wrapping supplies. There would never be a mess! lol
I know!!!! I would have never saved ANY of this junk! Well… there is some cute “paw print” wrapping paper. I saved that! Lololol
Sometimes it’s best to trash everything and start over! Just kidding! Glad you could help mummy, Millie!
Ohhhhh we threw out soooo much stuff so the room looks a million times better! I will talk Mummy into making one more pass over some of this stuff and maybe throw out MORE!!!
What to do on winter days? Before sending Valentines? Sort gift wrappings.bows, and cards..Happy Valentines to The 4 Yorkies and Mummy
Well we certainly have our new room all set up now. It is looking really good! Mummy is going to start on some messy cabinets next! Lololol
Too cute I would say the same thing Millie I hate going through that kind of stuff! Good luck girls!😘
We are almost finished! Mummy is moving everything to a bigger walk-in closet with cabinets and a countertop for wrapping gifts. It will be really nice once it is all set up. Very organized!
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.
Ohhhh noooo! That is not encouraging!!! Mummy and I were thinking of tackling a closet or cabinet every week and maybe we could clean this place up!
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!
Hi Beautiful Millie, you are such a good little helper!! Love you Precious!
Thank you very much. It has been lots of work but the room is almost finished and it really looks nice!!!
Hi Millie you are such a good helper to mom. Ask for extra treats you can share with your sisters
That’s a good idea! I have certainly earned them with all of the work that I have done!
