So - here it is! This is looking from the door into the far right corner of the room. Those big black things are speakers that we have listed on Craigslist. Please, please let someone buy them soon!! I managed to consolidate a 12 bin cubby of sewing supplies into those few plastic shoe boxes on the bottom shelf. The other shelves are all school supplies - notebooks, lined paper, glue sticks, 3-ring notebooks etc. The black totes to the left of the sewing table are what remains of my extensive Creative Memories scrapbooking collection. I pared it down to the essentials.
And this is the other corner of the room. I eliminated a 2ft. shelf and cleared off a 3ft. shelf. I was able to put my paper cutter on it with a cup for pencils and scissors. My sewing machine is out where my daughter can use it. The table is cleared off for scrapbooking and cutting fabric. It's a miracle! The opposite corner of this room is a blank wall and closet. I emptied 3 huge rubbermaid bins of fabric and consolidated them into one small 3 drawer cart in the closet. The rest of the junk in these rooms has either been trashed (4 huge bags!) or in boxes ready to go to Goodwill or has been given to friends. I am getting ready to sort bookshelves in the school room, next so I am hopeful that I'll be able to move some of those school supplies to cubbies in the school room. It feels so good to be able to walk into that room *and* have a table to start a project on. Like getting those thousands of pictures I have in boxes into albums. ;-)
Whew! I am so glad that project is *done*. Now, I can go through one last bin - the one with the supplies to create the "perfect" home management binder. That is todays project and then I have to start paying attention to my college classes! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted. My whole house feels lighter now!
