Ha! Not this woman. Oh no! I organize stuff.
Okay, given the choice, I'd probably like to go on exotic vacations, but since my pocket book doesn't allow for such radical spending, I will have to make my own fun.
It is my goal to systematically go room to room in my house, and clean and organize whatever I can get my hands on.
Well, that or at least until I grow bored of that line of thinking/activity.
I just realized, a few weeks back, as I was anticipating yet another stay-cation, that I have lived in this house for two and a half years, and I have managed to make it a disaster on every single floor/level. I mean, surface-wise, no one would be the wiser. However, go to the places that no one can see, and BOY HOWDY! You will see a complete and total disaster!
Today's goal: Basement Reorganization/DeClutter and Linen Closet Reorganization and DeClutter.
Both of these areas have become a dumping ground of odds and ends. It's beyond pitiful, and I just decided that rather than keep all the crap, it was time to get rid of it.
I have FILLED to overflowing my recycling bin. So much so that I have recycling waiting in the wings for NEXT week because I can't fit another thing in the bin. That's pitiful, ladies and gentlemen. In fact, now that I think about it, there might not even be a word to fully describe the pitiful nature of my basement and linen closet. Hmmm...I will think on it.
The basement is DONE! Here. I have proof. See below!
|This was the BEFORE. Yes, before you even point it out, I need to be honest and tell you that I do, in fact, have a ridiculous amount of Christmas tubs. It's true.|
|I had help. And by help, I mean, a certain someone that was CONSTANTLY in the way.|
|The AFTER ... a corner full of tubs.|
|My exercise space. I can not wait to work without fear of tripping over stuff.|
