I have created a storage space in my l.r. in which I have managed to pack so many things that I thought it was about time to consolidate some of the household goods.
I was able to pack about 5 bags (clothes, toys, shoes, etc.)to donate to the Salvation Army. My husband tossed about 4 bags of garbage.
I received a good piece of advice in which I tried to follow during my clean-up effort is that "If I were planning to move, would I take this with me?" I noticed I had quite a few things that no longer were in working order and I just kept and stored them. I had items that my family nor I used any longer and can be passed along to someone who may find use for them.
My husband and I will be concentrating on the kitchen next! We have been blessed with abundant cabinet space and therefore I have managed to use it as storage also.
I am excited to get started on that one!
Overall, I feel like we made some progress in our effort to prepare for the arrival of our 2nd daughter in just 3 weeks.
