X POST - Getting Organized and Down Sizing
Hello Everyone, My name is Loretta. I've been reading this forum for a while, and have seen tons of good advice.
I'm not known for being the most organized person, but I have something to share. I x-posted this in Small Homes forum where I usually hang out.
Back in the spring I had some work done on the house. One of the things I decided to do was build a small pantry (2' wide) and use my present pantry/storage (6' wide closet in the kitchen)for something else. I found that the more space I had, the more 'stuff' I piled in it. Well, I have been half heartedly getting rid of unneeded and unused items. It is still not empty, but I thought I would show you all my progress.
This is what I had.
This is how it looks now. All of the Christmas bins will be stored outside in the storage house. I plan to give the copier to the Salvation Army. Eventually I plan to move the freezer in this space and have shallow shelves beside it.
And this the new pantry. I told the builder exactly what I wanted size-wise, but was a little worried that I was going too small. But it holds plenty for 2 people.
I have another storage space in the hallway, that I plan to reorganize also. Progress is being made - slow, but sure.
