my sewing table - uh, correction....junk table
this is opposite side of craft/tv/guest room
Oh my...oh my, OMG!!
I am still movin' stuff from my apt. to the house and we just came back with another load yesterday - the let me see....ah, yes the 5th trip.... 2 times with a borrowed SUV and 3 times with the car jammed with 'my stuff'. I'm completely overwhelmed with it, and where the heck it's going to all go. I've already filled up the shed and garage(already packed with junk) and our sunroom is crammed with boxes and bags. This house is not big, it's rooms are small and I have to sort, purge, designate for yard sale and charity. This is an accumulation of stuff i have collected since the late 80's and i have lived in 11 apts since then, WoW!!
I feel helpless, hopeless and unable to motivate myself to begin sorting it all. The house is already at the point of being cluttered and i do not want to have a cluttered house.
As you can see from the photos there is a big mess, and everyweek i tackle it and clean it up but then we make another trip to my apt. bring back another load and the clutter begins again. We also have one more load to get this weekend.
Steve it going to put up shelving around the sewing table this week, so all my sewing and crafting supplies can go there, and we bought those 'under the bed storage on wheelies' boxes to hide alot of stuff we don't need to use on a daily basis. So, that is a start i guess. Anyone got any organization tips they want to 'throw out' there (notice the pun?). Do you have any similar horror stories?
