soooo stressed,really need to pay of my overdraft,i have spent loads on xmas for the kids this month (got 5 kids) but each time i try sorting some stuff out to sell to make room and make money its like the children are following behind me causing destruction everywhere so i have given up!
i wish i could just dump all this stuff somewhere and have someone else sort it for me its so time consuming

get rid of stuff ed - it will clear your house and clear your mind - did you get one of the trampolines from argos - it would keep the kids busy!!

if you need the pennies, then explain to the kids that you have to make room for all the new santa toys, if not, bag it up and take it straight to your local charity shop, i have recently cleared a load of stuff out to, was going to sell it, but it just ended up piling up for weeks making more clutter, so just filled my car and got rid of it all

in the mean time have a sit down and a nice cup of tea x

hi holly
no didnt bother with one we already got a big trampoline.
its the 3 year old and 1 year old causing the havoc,its just hard work keeping on top of washing without doing other jobs
for example as i have just gone to make a brew my son shouts mum zack has spilt a cup everywhere,so as im trying to clean it up my 1 year old slips in it then hes crying and then when i sit down to type reply on here they both are fighting over sitting on my knee

i do give alot of the stuff to charity and freecycle but there are some things i just cant give away and need to sell.
range cooker,new clothes that i have bought and dont fit and lost receipts,hundreds of boys clothes that are like new from next,i also have some new toys in loft that i bought at begining of year in january sales but i now dont think they are suitable for them,i desperatly need to sort loft out but i work nights at the weekend and in the week i dont get to sit down till about 9 after cleaning etc

i tell you now ladies - i would sooner have a dozen little ones - they are so inquisitive and gorgeous

ok so things do get spilt - they can be demanding - go to nettos and get a big potato box - about 5ft tall cut a door - put in dining room sling in some toys sweets - etc - you wont hear from them for an hour

i have done this for numerous mums with little ones - they love it - no cost

just wait till they get to 12 - 15 - i cant even talk to 15 yr old - biatch - how i stop myself sometimes

so i think you all all so lucky!! just a shame they grow up

tell me about it,when the older ones come home from school thye 12 & 13 year old all they do is argue my daughter is the worst soooo cheeky and cocky!i agree they are harder work but at least they are in school in the day :)
#10
i think when they are around 12 an alien abducts them and replaces them with a nightmare with attitude!!:-D:-D

Is there anyway you can take them out for some fresh air? Get them running round after a ball or such like and hopefully it'll tire them out.

Started typing this 5 mins ago but then my 3yr old came in with the sweeping brush & said spilt porridge!!! Needless to say the kitchen floor was covered in oats!!!!! Dog didnt seem too interested in eating them though!! So having swept those away I have now got a chance to finish this!!

I know fresh air might be obvious but you never know.

I agree with the older ones. My 11yr old girl is really cocky ARGH!!! She talks to me like I'm so stupid and I just have pictures in my head of homer and bart...why you little!!!!!

Perhaps you could dedicate 15 mins each evening to selling a certain item. One at a time might be easier than all at once.

Good luck anyway!

hugs hun....it is hard work....hang in there! x
#13
yeah probably am best of doing one thing a night,would just be really helpful if we had anyone i could trust to take them for a couple of hours so i can get it all done at once

will make a start on it on monday after my weekend at work
thanks for advice everyone

shouldn't have had 5 kids, shouldn't have spent loads on them, shouldn't worry about selling other stuff, shouldn't get stressed with the kids. God aint life easy when it aint you !
