The Keeper Of Everything

I am finally getting into a position to buy a small house which means I need to get a handle on all the crap in this place!!  If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I am constantly in a state of organization.  But when you still have boxes unopened from 2 houses ago, its time to take control of the situation.

Organizational gurus say if you haven't opened a box in 5 yrs (?!?!), do you really need it?  Toss it!!  I can't do that.  That unopened box could hold a bag of yarn I forgot about.  Or fabric.  Or that mug my mom used and now I cant find. 

When the guys were here this past wknd, dvds, cds and other stuff were gone thru.  They took what they wanted.  I will box up some of #1 Son's stuff (mostly from school), but as far as I'm concerned, the rest of the stuff is mine to do with as I chose.

There are boxes in that hole in the back, inside the console the tv is sitting on and behind the night stand.  And this is a small portion of what there is...


These boxes have been gone thru.

I'm going thru boxes to see what I want to keep and what I want to get rid of.  I ask myself, "Do I really want to move this again?"  If the answer is no, out it goes!!!! If the answer is yes, then I'm trying to group it with like items.

It's a start.  And it helps to blare classic rock while you do it.  I love you Def Leppard!
