Well, my basement is finally perfectly organized and neat. Everything is in containers and everything is on shelves! I am so happy about it and feel as though a heavy weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Half of our basement is a finished family room, and the other half was the part of the house no one could ever, ever see. Now, they can! I had accumulated an unbelievable 20 plastic bins of baby clothes!!! I couldn't believe it! I had been saving them because before I had my second child, I thought I was having a girl, but he turned out to be a boy, so it was time to purge. I am down to one box of keepsakes now. I even went through the kid's closets and purged them at the same time. I just had crap (decorations I don't use, random kitchen stuff etc.) everywhere in that storage room, and it felt so good to get rid of it. Now I have tons of extra plastic bins. My husband put up a few new shelves, and we were in business. Even my laundry room (which is connected to the new storage area) is finally neat, clean and organized. You may remember me from this forum before, looking for laundry advice "Laundry Mountain Nightmare". Well that is finally under control too! There is hope out there, you just have to go through one bin, bag, card board box at a time.
