Each week, when Friday comes around, I get the itch to go garage-sale-ing or thrift store trolling. But, when I go, I have to go through my garage to get to the car outside (the car that can't fit in a 2-car garage due to crap I have stored in here.)
At this point, I start thinking; "...maybe it's time to get this stuff un-boxed and all those projects finished or abandon them forever?"
I mean...really...do I need any more stuff when all this is waiting for me to get 'round tu-it? (Honestly, I can actually hear my three minimalist daughters muttering under their breath right now, even though all three are in different states from me!)
There's the pale wood bed frame that needs a color change... well, at least part of the bed frame. The footboard is here, but the headboard is down at the old house. There's also a pile of pictures, rolling bins of knick-knacks, bags and tubs of out of season clothes...you name it, I've got it.
So, I guess it's time to get 'er done! I'll be posting each time I shop the garage. I've decided to do the following:
- take a picture of each item I 'shop' from my garage, then...
- make a decision on whether it stays, goes to a relative, or gets donated to charity...
- if it stays, I'm planning to complete the project by doing whatever is needed to make it over before I go "shopping" in my garage again
All this is left even though I've already taken two pickup truck loads to my mother-in-law this week. Some of her stuff was mixed in with mine since we were storing some of her stuff while she got settled in too.
Ya'll come back soon and check my progress. Hopefully, there will be progress. Otherwise it's all going to charity. I promise.
