After organizing that monstrosity that is now my husband's den, I felt the need to continue on in my quest for a clean, organized home.
There were several areas I could start working on, but I chose to tackle the biggest, most cluttered area first.
We have lived in our house for over two years now and the garage has never been touched. NEVER.
I lie. The man did touch the dead mice as he threw them out.
So, I have spent about 7 hours today getting started on that big project and when you look at it from the steps, it looks like I accomplished absolutely NOTHING.
However, when you venture deeper into depth of the garage, you can see the floor! ...and lots of mouse poop.
I have one more day off to work on it but I cannot devote all day like I did today. (sad face)
Did I ever mention my goal? Probably not. Here it is. My goal is to get all the outside stuff completed before summer hits, aka before the heat hits. I have noticed the past two years that we wait until the summer to start outside projects because that is when the man has off of work, you know being a teacher and all. Well, the problem with waiting until summer is that it is HOT. Who wants to do outside work when it is hot? Not me. Not the man, Nope, no way. So I am pushing to get it all done before the heat kicks in.
The garage is one of those "outside" projects. Who wants to work in a heat filled box? Nope, not me, so I want to get it decluttered and mostly organized before June. I think that if I spend maybe 2-3 hours on it tomorrow and then also this weekend, I can get most of it done. The part that will be left is the man's domain. (He's a hoarder...mainly of teaching supplies and video game pieces and parts and wires and junk).
So, hopefully my plan for tomorrow and the weekend works out and then I can post some more before and after pictures!
