So, yesterday was the final push to clear and then clean the worst clutter area in the house (plus some things from the garage and cellar). My DH leapt in with gusto and took trips to the dump and chopped up furniture with his bare hands (just kidding he used a giant mallet thing).
Houston, we have a floor!!!!! Things look so light filled and airy and spacious!
And…when we were clearing I had put a bunch of stuff on top of my desk so now I have that to go through this morning.
And…when we were clearing, we put a bunch of paper that should be kept in two boxes and put them in a closet. So this winter I will be scanning and doing minor filing.
And…when we were clearing we put things to be repaired in the garage.
Keeping in mind that amazing quote "Procrastination is clutter" I have made some deadlines for the remaining clutter. We have things to be darned, new fabric to be sewn into things like curtains, furniture to repair, antique tchochkes to repair, a bookshelf to build to give the books we are keeping a home, a workshop area to set up properly so I can reach tools and paint and drop cloths etc, and the dreaded shed to go through.
