Spent til 3 am sorting through the kids stuff in our garage, getting stuff ready for the Co-op Sale this Saturday, while making piles of stuff going to different institutions and charities.
Today we brought a big box of art supplies to the art studio and another one with books to the school library. While cleaning up I also found a book a friend wanted for a while. On our way back home, we dropped it off at her house.
It feels good to give, especially if you feel you found a good new home for your stuff - and also good to have more and more space empty.
I also try to come up with a system for the remaining items in the garage, like each of the 7 shelves will have a purpose:
- Camping, sports and outdoor gear
- Board games, toys
- Electronics, DVD/CDs
- Playmobil (yes, one entire IKEA shelf would be needed)
- Kitchen, Truffle Making Supplies, Gift wrapping
- Seasonal (Christmas, Eastern, Thanksgiving)
- Tools, paint, cleaning supplies, tarps, emergency supplies
Bikes in the corner on a wire lift. We might be able to put a couch or lounger in and a white board for video streaming. Ideally something that does not take much space, so we could also pull out the trampoline or just play on the floor.
Optimistic, curious, human bee.
