The first post outlining the scope of the project is here.
The first update is here.
The progress report for Week 1 is here.
This week we managed to remove shelves in two of the three areas we're clearing out in the basement.
The first: enlarging the "new" game room:
The second: my husband's workshop.
Before: (I didn't even have room to get in front of the shelves to take a decent picture)
But that doesn't mean we have purged the equivalent amount of stuff. Far from it. We've just dumped it into the middle of the basement.
We did get rid of a bunch of stuff (but not nearly enough) and re-located some of it.
Here's my donation station: quite overflowing.
Here's it is all loaded up into the back of the jeep: not as impressive a picture as I would want! I packed most of it into luggage we decided to give away. It's lying down in the back. I drove it away Sunday afternoon (which is why this post is late.)
The Girl Guide box is not full of cookies but of books!
We relocated some of our collapsible lawn chairs--right up into the rafters! My husband just screwed in a couple of pieces of wood to hold them.
We're running into a problem with the books, though.
My husband took these boxes to a second hand shop and they bought four. Count 'em. Four. The situation is dire.
Sorry about this. The white balance was off. This is two boxes of old ice skates and the rest of the pile is books. (I think!)
I don't feel as if I did a lot this week, really. I took at least three full days off: one to clean for company that cancelled, one for a bottle drive for my daughter's Girl Guide group, and one to work on my Photo Freedom course.
I will have to buckle down quite a bit this week. Next week, (next week!) my husband goes under the stairs to begin insulating.
Egads! Where are we going to put it all?
