It's About Time

Some things get put off.  Some things get put off a loooong time!

Today we tackled one of those projects that had been put off far too long - cleaning out the storage room!  It's been needing this since about the week after we moved in here...seven years ago.  You see, when we moved in we just started shoving whatever didn't have a home into the storage room.  Over the past seven years it had gotten more and more cluttered and more and more out of control.  It had finally reached the breaking point.  You could barely get in the door to get anything out of there, and heaven forbid if there was a tornado.  We'd never all fit in that room!  (it's the only room in the basement without windows, as we live in a split-level)

Anyway, just to prove my point, here are the before pictures...

And then, after approximately four hours of removing EVERYTHING from the storage room, sorting through some of it, and putting stuff back, here are the results....

Wasn't the most fun I've ever had, but it was well worth the time and effort!
