Albino Pack Rats

Oh My Gosh! Packing up the girls’ room today really sucked and took forever. They had little pack rat piles of crap everywhere.

Our strategy was to ban them from the room. We brought in garbage bags, boxes, tape, markers and went to town. Nothing left the room unless it was something we were keeping in storage. Everything categorized as trash or items that would given to Goodwill were stashed in the room until we were done and Tom could spirit them directly to the car.

Our goal was to prevent the Zs from rooting around the trash/Goodwill piles and pulling items out declaring, “this is my favorite…”

They actually didn’t protest our strategy, rather, they seemed to understand, on some level, that it was just going to be easiest this way.
