Hi Messyme :)
A great way to get dishes under control is to only have a few of each. Then you will have to wash them regularly.
Four plates, four bowls, four cups, four forks, spoons, knives.
So go ahead and toss all the rest.
Same principal applies to clothes.
Sit down and figure out how many of something you need.
Four pair of slacks, four skirts, twenty blouses, six dresses or whatever your actual needs are.
Then toss all the rest.
BIG WTG! on the stuff you bagged already! :D
But you are going to have to resign yourself to making those trips to the dumpster unless you can find a kid who will do this for a little cash.
Keep up the great job of bagging! :D
