True Confessions: We are renting a too-small apartment. We have one detached garage, but we have to use it for storage, and this is what it looks like! Yes, it would stress me out a whole lot more if I had to see it more often. But luckily it stays pretty contained, and when I have to go in there, I try to close my eyes. There is just no avoiding the fact that we have too much STUFF in here including
* Four, yes FOUR, industrial-size printers/copy machines.
* A motorcycle.
* My husband's "office."
* My old first grade classroom, still boxed up, including 6 tubs of just children's BOOKS.
* Oh yeah, and plenty of baby toys and clothes, past and present.
Funny story: For some reason, each time my husband travels, he absolutely insists on bringing home all of the free soap that he can. I don't know how some of these hotels are still in business honestly!! All of these soaps really tell a story about where he's been and the places he has traveled. I can only put up with so much hoarding, however. So now our deal is that once this neatly-labeled container is full, that's it! (By the way, if there is ever a world shortage of soap, I am more than willing to share!)
I considered doing a "before" and "after" shot, but honestly, the before shot is just too embarrassing!! These storage containers found their way into those icky under-the-sink places, my bathroom closet, and even my craft drawer! I stayed up way too late, but I slept easy knowing my house was organized. Hip hip hooray!
But my celebration can only last so long. This is the mountain of laundry waiting for me today. My husband and I were betting how high up the wall the pile would climb.
