Our basement ends up being a catch-all for things. Is yours like that? I don't go down there very often, even though that's where our TV/entertainment area is located. Isn't it crazy how we just seem to accumulate stuff; I mean, where does it all come from?! We don't have much income at this point, and we're not purchasing much besides food, so really--how do piles and piles of stuff just appear out of nowhere?? I'm flabbergasted.
Here's my before picture. *insert embarrassed look here*
My goal was to separate in one place all the homeschool stuff I wanted to sell, because I signed up for a homeschool curriculum resale event. Everything else needed to be put either "in a box" (I'll deal with it later) or in the donation box. With that, I went to work. I love all those empty blue Rubbermaid storage boxes--it means I've gotten rid of stuff!
It's amazing when you pick up everything how much floor space there is. You can see all the boxes of homeschool stuff on the left; those will hopefully all be gone in a couple weeks. Yeah, the wires hanging everywhere are ugly, but it is what it is at this point, and as the guys move on with their lives much of that will disappear. Give it a quick vacuum, and at least we can walk around down in this basement space.
Trust me, there is still lots to do down here in this unfinished space. But there's something to say about clean floor space, don't you think?
Stuff to go to Goodwill.
