Anyway, back in June and early July I was faced with the task of cleaning out the office/storage room to make room for the nursery. Our house doesn't have an attic or much storage space of any type, so I had basically used the 3rd bedroom as a makeshift attic/office since I bought the house some six years ago. Moving all that junk out was no easy task. After giving away 5 large bags of clothes, throwing out more bags of garbage than I can count, getting rid of a big farmhouse table and an elliptical machine, filling up a hallway closet with buckets of craft supplies, and finding new homes for a handful of other items, everything that was left got shoved into the guest room until I could figure out what to do with it:
Yes, those bins are stacked 4 high. The time has come to figure out what to do with it. Thursday and Friday of this week is going to be dedicated to finding a place for as much of this as possible. I think almost half of it is Christmas decorations. And we somehow own a pile of luggage (much of which is actually under the bed and in the closet in this room AND our bedroom). I spent last week cleaning out our bedroom to make some extra space. I need to clean out the shelves in the laundry room as well. Did I mention that I have even more Christmas decorations stored in the laundry room? I'm going to need more garbage bags.
