Dejunking

Ok, when you are going to have the flooring redone in your bedrooms, you have to take everything out. And when you live in a place that is only 950 sq ft. for 22 years, you have a lot of STUFF. Needless to say my house has been a wreck as I took everything out of the closet and off the floor and into the front of the house. Now that my floors are glorious, I have been forced to really look at all this stuff I have been storing and making decisions about keeping it or getting rid of it. The other good thing, is that now that I have a smoother surface on the floor, I can actually move the furniture around! So I have been reorganizing and dejunking and it had been so very nice. I have a lot of hobbies and each hobby has bunch of supplies, etc. But I have made several trips to Goodwill and Deseret Industries lately and I think it all good. It's amazing how you can store something for years and yet not miss it a bit when it's gone.
The only thing that makes me a little nervous is my holiday decorations. I have had a tub with decorations for each holiday, Halloween, Easter, etc. I really don't have the room to store all that, especially if I am doing food storage too. So I finally bit the bullet and decided that I could keep ONE tub for holidays and I had to pick what few things I wanted and put them in there and get rid of the rest. Hopefully it will all be good. I haven't tackled Christmas, but everything else is going to go tomorrow after my friend takes what she wants out of there. My front bedroom actually looks like a somewhat normal room for once! I haven't gotten my bike back in there yet, that will change things, but overall, it looks like a spare/office/laundry/hobby room instead of a wall to ceiling junk room.
