Purge Day One
Sadly I did not take a before picture of the pantry, but did take an after picture. You can use your imagination. Every ounce of shelf space was full.
And the Charlie's potato chip can that has been empty for twenty years? What purpose? Well, "I might want to put something into it someday." "Dude, please, toss it."
That huge plastic trash can. "I'm afraid to pick it up because the plastic is so brittle it will just fall apart all over the floor!" "How old IS that thing??" "I don't know, maybe thirty years?" So we picked it up and babied it into a contractor's bag where it immediately fell into four pieces. Some things just cannot be saved!
Honestly, though, it feels good to purge sometimes. I just dread starting the closet in the unused bedroom where I have stored massive amounts of things I can't bear to part with after giving Don such grief over the forty-year-old thermos bottles, coats, and such. I am not an organized person. I am an ADHD woman who has a lot of trouble throwing away, putting away, organizing, or even finding everyday items like by scrubs for work and my jackets and shoes.
Here I am adding a few photos of the way the living room, bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen look before the rebuild. My boss, Bev, actually reminded me to be sure to take plenty of before and after photos so we can look back on them and see how far we've come as adults!
