Day three of unpacking


Day three of unpacking, originally uploaded by tommiea1.

I am starting to not feel so claustrophobic in my own home! We have unpacked about two thirds of the house. I am a visual unpacker. I put stuff away in the same 'zones' we use in every house. For example, spices go to the right of the oven. Most of the time we have the same amount of space, so it all fits. This time, the cabinets in the kitchen are much different than we had in TX.

For one thing, I don't have an island with storage underneath. I don't have that super cool pantry. When I unpack, I put everything on the counter, then put it where it is most efficient. Since there is some overflow....I have had to get creative. I put in a chrome kitchen shelf in a broom closet that was a waste of space. Now I essentially have the same thing.

Slowly but surely we are getting things unpacked. I have several boxes of things to Freecycle. I don't even bother with garage sales anymore. Unpacking all of this stuff makes me want to simplify my life even more. We have so much stuff.

All of the living furniture is not going to fit, so that chair and ottoman are going to our bedroom. The bedroom is huge, so it will fit nicely in there.

Happy Wednesday...

I often de clutter- leaving things by the curb and they are always snatched up immediately. At least someone's getting some use out of it- and I don't have to spend hours sitting around to make a few measly dollars. :)

You go, girl! My Hubs is the one that is awesome at the organizing. I just maintain it!

I'd say that is MAJOR PROGRESS T. What an awesome feeling that must be to finally be in the homestretch. Besides M can build you that pantry. :)

I am going to do my best to "simplify" Madison's closet/room this week-end!

I need to simplify a lot. This house is really big and when I move, it's going to be awful. I'm not a clutter person at all, but still. So much stuff!

All those boxes...good for you for de-cluttering! I am too scared to even think about moving, sounds like you have it down pat!
