Another Basement of Shame!

I need to fix this this weekend, I have a hard time doing it when I am stuck with the kids because well...nothing is safe down there.

I will update with pictures as I get through this. I need a computer station for work, a music station for dp (he gives lessons in our basement!) & a sewing station. Right now we just avoid going down as much as possible and I am twitching by the time I finish a shift working in this.

I don't usually keep anything obstructing the stairs, I tossed the bin down because the kids were getting into it.

Sorry for junk cell pictures, I'll find my charger & get better after shots!

I'm sure it's driving you crazy, but I don't think it's THAT bad. With some purging and shelves, I'm sure it can get pretty decent in a weekend. Good luck!

Yay! A comrade! I agree, it doesn't look that bad. It will be a weight off your shoulders to have it done.

Re: Another Basement of Shame!

A lot of it isn't too bad, there are already 6 bags of donate that just need to come out of that mess. Two bins are for a friend, I have to stash them until someone comes up to visit (probably end of April/early May) & they will be gone. Things like the Christmas tree just have to get put away. I want to do it NOW NOW NOW but have a sick 4 year old and a baby that just wont sit still.

Now to convince myself to actually head down there tonight...it never works on week nights.

Thanks, you're right I'm currently sitting in the mess eating popcorn playing on here while my big kid naps upstairs making the kitchen unusable. I hate doing things in little bits and that is the only way I can right now.
