Some nights I pick a drawer and just set it down in the middle of the living room while the Hubs is watching TV and I go through it, saving what we use, trashing some, maybe even filing away some "important" papers.
These last few days I've been making some headway into the DREADED CEDAR CLOSET. This was the awesome storage that helped make the sale on this house. I had surgery a couple of days after Christmas a couple of years ago, and the family put all the decorations away - I was grateful, but of course it was put away nothing like I would have done it. Unfortunately the cedar closet has no heat/no air conditioning so it makes it hard to want to spend any amount of time in there most of the year. So that's why I've been in here lately...great temperatures.
Pretty horrendous, I know! You could barely walk through this mess.
It's getting better! Two carloads donated and my burden is lighter.
You have to be careful when you get what you want...you might discover it'll consume you.
