Basement Progress: Organized!

The tools and building supplies are finally organized in the basement. This was really the final big organizational job that had to be tackled. We already went through all our boxes and tubs. Everything in our tools area was such a mess - we’ve done so many projects and moved so many things around that everything was ridiculously disorganized. It’s really nice that we’ll be able to find things again and not have to spend 20 minutes looking for a hammer!

Now that everything is officially organized (even if it doesn’t look it, there’s a method to our madness since we want to rearrange everything), we’re really at the “moving things around and out” phase. We have to move things into the crawl space and set that up, and get all those piles out of the basement. We did put some of the garbage to the curb, but not all of it because we had so much to go out already. Two missed pickups really adds up with regular trash and recycling (thank you snowstorms), so didn’t want to push our luck. We’ll put the rest out next week. The give back/give away/donate pile is slowly starting to dwindle, but there are so many destinations that it might take a while.

I’m really looking forward to the point where we can rearrange the furniture and have a little space down here. It’s good motivation to keep going.
