Cleaning the Landfill {SOL Day #12: 3-12-15}

Just how much stuff can one teenager fit into a bedroom?

27 empty (or somewhat empty) plastic water bottles

18 kitchen spoons (so that's where those went!)

2 jars of peanut butter (what?????)

12 loads of laundry

3 bags of paper (to be recycled)

2 giant plastic bags of "garbage"

57 mismatched socks

2 boxes of school supplies (pens, crayons, markers, tape....)

3 American Girl dolls that are no longer played with

6 blankets

2 old Girls Scout manuals (where did these come from?)

4 grade school yearbooks

A pack of my favorite pens (grrr.....)

{Too many One Direction posters...}

Four hours later.....

1 bed
1 dresser
1 desk

                Ahhhhh....that's better.


  1. What a haul and what a great way to reframe the stressful day into a celebration of great and needed finds!

  2. Wow, what a task you had! I love how your description mimics the state of the room from start to finish. Happy to see you ended with 1 bed, dresser, and desk

  3. Would you come on over to my house and do that in my twenty-something daughters' rooms??? Please! Ugh!

  4. Really, 27 water bottles! Re-cyling will be happy. I don't remember those days with nostalgia at all!

  5. Oh my goodness, did you actually COUNT?!?!?! FIFTY-SEVEN mismatched socks?!?!?! Oh my!!!!

  6. Wow - I'm impressed...that was one full room!

  7. This made me laugh! Who did the cleaning? If it was you then it is not so funny! Are we making predictions for how long it will last?

  8. I had the same thought as Kim, who did the work? What a day that was!

  9. It sounds like that was a busy cleaning day!
