I had high hopes Saturday. I had the whole day to stay at home. No running around Wichita, no cooking, no auctions. I was going to clean THE ROOM!!
When Behm & I married, he had a 4 bedroom house. Now we have 2 bedrooms, 1 office, & 1 huge walk-in closet (otherwise known as THE ROOM).
No, we didn't move. I'm a pack rat! I collect lots of things, but I don't really know what I have because most of it is in THE ROOM somewhere.
I love old records, books, paper items, games, Christmas decorations, anything that is a bargain at auctions, etc. They all end up in THE ROOM.
I have sold a lot of items on eBay. My girls love to go shopping here. Everything is free!!
Anyway, back to cleaning. I had a plan. Clean one corner at a time. In the corner is a huge wooden toy box filled with record albums. That's where I started.
I moved them into another room to sort through them. I did throw a lot away, kept some to record to CDs, & some more to try to sell.
Now I had this big empty box that needed something in it. So I emptied a plastic container of games & put the games I wanted to keep in there.
But then I had these other games I wanted to sell. I wanted to empty the container so I could get rid of it. What to do with the games to sell? Throw them in the toy box & hope I get back to them? Yep, sounds like a plan!
Next, I found 2 boxes of 8 track tapes. I started recording them. Of course I had to listen to them.
Then I started recording albums. Songs don't last very long when you're trying to work between songs. After running back & forth for a while, I finally gave up.
No - - not recording albums. Cleaning! Now instead of THE ROOM to clean, I have 4 rooms to clean!
I think this may be the best solution I can come up with!
Now I can't see all the piles of junk!
