My basement is filled with all the stuff I’ve moved 3 times before landing in this house. Clearly, not necessary in my world. So it needs to go. Thoughtfully, but it needs to go.
In light of that, I built a wall to create a storage nook. I put shelves along the walls that were there and the new one, will go through all the items on the shelves, to determine what stays and goes, then go through the stuff not on the shelves for the same purpose. Hopefully this leaves only stuff that fits on the shelves, but we’ll see how that plays out.
I threw away 7 bags of trash (shhhhh…that is embarrassing…especially since I doubt I’m done), and have the wall built, shelves in place and feeling rather accomplished. No pictures for now, because it’s not at that point yet, but when it is I’ll show the finished project.
