Remodeling leads to organization?
It seems so counterintuitive - but an impending remodel is really helping us pare back our "stuff". We are expanding the upstairs of our Cape but first we have to get EVERYTHING out of the upstairs.
We are staying in the house during the remodel, so we are living in about 1/3 less space than we're used to. In the process of emptying the closets and attic I am getting rid of a LOT of stuff. A lot of it is nice clothes that don't fit (I lost weight unexpectedly). But it feels SO GOOD! I think doing this in preparation for the remodel will mean we'll be even happier with our newly reconfigured 2nd floor (a few months from now).
I've been reading here for inspiration as I slog thru it all. You guys are an inspiration!
