Wow! I thought I got rid of most of my stuff. Boy was I wrong. I am up to my elbows in boxes of things that I don’t know what to do with. It definitely was a luxury to have the space we did at our old house. I could keep bathroom cleaning supplies in each bathroom. Now I have 7 bottles of toilet bowl cleaner-one from each of the 5 bathrooms and a couple of spares that I kept in the storage room. I had NINE bottles of Windex. I had no clue I had so many cleaning products.
My kitchen is another story. Where am I going to put all this stuff? My pantry and cabinets are full. I can’t believe I had a place for all of this at our old house, and there are still more kitchen boxes in the garage.I had a wonderful spice drawer organized with all of my spices and now I don’t even have cabinet or drawer room for them. Part of my spices are still in a box and the rest are on my countertop.
Our three car garage is piled to the brim with barely room to walk.
My fireplace is my go to spot for my excessive cleaning products. I need to keep them accessible since the house is in dire need of deep cleaning before I feel comfortable putting anything away. (Jordan is anxious to start a fire in it already. I think we would burn the house down or create a huge explosion with all those chemicals.)
Round two of purging has begun. Looks like we will likely be having another sale in the spring. Any suggestions on how to go about further purging? How do you decide what to keep and what to move on?
