My Messy [Current] Reality

Here are the promised pictures of what purging and reorganizing has been like around chez moi. I'm not going to type much because I just got back from my first Irish dance class in a month, so, I'm a wee bit... oh how do you say... out of it!
Of course, where there are bags and boxes and rustling of items, there must be a cat in the middle of it all. Tibby obviously doesn't see a problem with this, and I failed to negotiate a border treaty with him. Ah well, at least he was cute about it!
I managed to consolidate four file folders into two, numerous college binders into one, and so on and so forth. I felt the rainforest sob, I did. Thank goodness for recycling to ease my guilt.
Today's effort resulted in about a hundred dollars worth of pots and pans to donate (there are more bags and boxes btw). The shelves have more room and are cleaner to boot. Can I hear an 'HALLELUJAH!!"?
The result of Jon's efforts in the garage, and my clearing of baskets, folders, one closet, and three large tubs. The garbage men are going to HATE us...
We're going to need a [MUCH] bigger bin.

HAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAA I totally laughed out loud about the border treaty. I have yet to successfully negotiate one with any of my cats. That is an impressive amount of stuff that you guys are getting rid of... I bet there's SO MUCH space! Yay!

Wow, that's some serious cleaning up. It does feel good to clear things out.
Now you deserve a treat.

Sarah- Yeah it really is futile when it comes to cats, but, sometimes you just have to try. I know we've shed so much already, but, there is MUCH MORE to go!! I'm not through all of my tubs, yet, I still have kitchen stuff to go through, and let's not even begin with Jon- he has yet to sort through all of his stuff! But, it's good to have gotten rid of what we have so far! YAY!

Dedene- A treat would be nice, but, I'm not going to have one yet as there's more to do. It does feel good to clear stuff out for sure though. Can't wait to be DONE!
