After crying my eyes out, and looking around my house in horror - I decided that maybe I shouldn't watch Hoarders again. Every time I catch a minute of this show, I feel the need to purge. Our unfinished basement holds all our useless treasures. Yet it also functions as our laundry room. In a perfect world, my laundry would have a real floor, real walls, and wouldn't be in a musty basement. Till then, I must make due with what I have.
We recently redid Little's room, and had two extra short bookcases. I wanted to move them in the basement, but didn't know where they would go. Right now, all our holiday decor is stored under the stairs, and loads of extra things/garage sale items are in boxes all over the place. I would prefer to use the bookshelves for the following:
Extra towels for the new member of our family (Princess, the dog)
Party Supplies (ribbons, party bags, etc)
Gifts (I ALWAYS have a gift lying around or two in case something comes up - housewarming etc)
I am not sure what else to do with the space so its more orderly....but I started bragging to my husband that my design (ummm.....what design??) will blow his mind. I said it nice and slow too, to emphasize the blowing of the mind part. Awesome. I have no plan at all. And in less than ten minutes, I tore the basement up. eeck! Now, the real question is - how long will it take me to put it back together?!
