Spring Cleaning

This weekend I got motivated to do some spring cleaning, mostly to make some room for our ever growing stash of wedding stuff.  For the longest time our guest bedroom was ground zero for all things wedding related.  After a while it started to look like a bomb went off in there, so I organized it a couple of months ago.  Well, in those couple of months, the wedding merch grew exponentially.  And my sister moved in with us and is occupying the guest bedroom.  Needless to say, we were in need of a new location for our boxes, Rubbermaid containers, and garment bags.  The garage was out of the question.  We're heading into summer and I'm afraid the heat will damage our stuff.  So that left us with one choice - the office.  But the office was in worse condition than the guest bedroom!  We literally still have unpacked boxes in there from when we bought this house two years ago.  Aye aye aye.

We managed to get rid of a ginormous 30 gallon trash bag full of stuff and then some.  We're not done by any means, but made some good progress.  Here's the proof!


Yes, believe it or not, this is actually a vast improvement on what it was before.  But there's still not enough room to move in all of our wedding stuff.  Sigh.

Are wedding goods taking over your living space?

Same here! We rent a very tiny basement apartment and our 'media room' (aka storage room with bookcases full of DVD's) turned into wedding gifts galore and it's getting really crowded!!!

Yup! I guess that's typical with brides-to-be... having lots of wedding stuff occupying a vast space somewhere within our territory: finished invites, flowers stuff, wedding crafts materials, card boards waiting to be recycled, etc.
