starting today...

... we tackle the garage in anticipation of a yard sale this weekend. It's actually hard to capture in pictures how full the garage is, despite a variety of angles. This picture looks like it's just the end of the garage that is filled, but it goes allllllllllllllllllllllllll the way back. Stuff. Lots of it. There are also items in the house and up in the attic that will join the fray, but today we'll start pulling things out of the garage to determine if they stay or go, and to place them strategically for easy access (or out of harm's way) when the time comes. I'm glad I had a good breakfast! On my list also is to tackle the kitchen, which STILL has some boxes to unpack, and though we made some attempt to organize things in the beginning, organization had to yield to expediency along the way. That job is also mine. Ken is busy installing a shelf in the utility area of the garage so we can get laundry paraphernalia off the floor and make room for attempts at reorganizing the space. Wish us luck!

OMG that is a lot of hidden treasure. You may find it takes longer than you think as you head down memory lane. Oh hang on that would be my problem. Good luck with what appears to be a job and a half.

Hey! That's a picture of my garage! When did you come over here and take that picture? Really, when you get done with yours and have the expertise, feel free to head up north and have a go at ours. LOL!

Oh my... well... I don't envy you guys at all, but think about how cathartic it will all feel when it's sorted and arranged, and think of something FUN to do with the proceeds from the yard sale! Good luck... may the force be with you.

Oh my gosh Anne! That's worse than my garage. Never thought I'd see the day. Good luck to you!
