While the laundry room was bad, at least it was presentable. On the other hand, the bedroom corner is a place no one dares to look. Who knows what lurks beneath the piles and piles of stuff?
There were gift-wrapping supplies from Christmas, miscellaneous objects from both weddings & Mother's Day 2013, assorted craft projects, palette-making materials from our two youngest who still like to sleep in our room from time to time, outgrown kids' clothing, and assorted bed linens. In other words, it was a MESS!
I set up my sorting station in the center of my bed and got to work.
I pulled out all the big items first -- the broken chair, crash pad, and Christmas decorations. That made a big difference. My corner began to look manageable.
Then I started on the crib -- comforters and blankets, clothes, etc.
Before long, the crib was empty,
and I had 3 sacks of things to give away, 3 containers of trash, a neat bedroom corner,
and a bedroom that looks so much better.
