There's always something going on around here in the quest to make this house our own. Inside, outside, renovations, restorations...
Enjoy the story about how we grow with our house, our Project Jumanji.

Progress update: The basement clean-out continues
It really was a big undertaking from the start. We're not hoarders by any means, but crap, you can really accumulate a lot of... well, 'crap' as the years go by. It really does make me think twice about anything I buy, and I hope others do too.
After doing all that great work on the front section, we attacked the back corner this weekend. Yay Progress! It did fill the front section with things that need a new home (again), but I like the idea that our back storage shelves have only our "keep-ables" on them.
We took that huge teal cabinet out and put it in the other room, tucked into a corner so that we could put our tv on it for treadmill use. We then managed to consolidate all of our stuff into those two shelves.
Here's GW's pile after his first clean and sort...
... and here it is after the second clean - Yay!!!!
Next I'm going to have to keep sorting the boxes that have refilled our front/treadmill room downstairs. I think there's 5 - 10 of them, so it's not that daunting... it's just another battle to wage, and thankfully, that's for another day :)
