    Default My Spring Cleaning (OT, XP)

    We have been wanting to put our house on the market for more than a year now, but the state of our basement has made that not possible. We procrastinated, procrastinated, blah blah blah, were too lazy to deal with it and it just got worse and worse.

    Feb. 1st we started cleaning. We finished Tuesday. I just wanted to share what we did because as stupid as it is to be proud of getting it done (when it was our fault in the first place), it feels great to finally have it done. We did 3 trips to the recylcing center (of just cardboard!) in our van, and 2 trips to the dump - one in my dad's truck, and the other in a 1 ton cube van that was pretty much full.

    The realtor is being called tomorrow. LOL

    Pics (the 'before' are embarassing)

    We also did Kaitlyn's bedroom

    Geesh! You have been BUSY! I bet it feels amazing to have all that extra space you didn't know you had before!

    We have 2 unfinished rooms in our basement which are blocked off by a door. We typically use it for storage, but my dh's weight bench is in there too. I'll admit it looks a lot like your before pictures! BUT, we have a renter so all of his extra crap is also in there. It's easy to let that happen when you have outgrown toys and equipment, too!

    Girl, my whole house is a disaster zone right now and I really have no hope of getting it clean.

    I know you really do feel much better...looks great! for a clean basement.

    And of course Kaitlyn's room is cute! Do you like those storage bins...I've considered them for Cadence, but think she may use them more when she's a little older...?

    We love them! We've had them since before she turned 2 (maybe November?) - and while she wasn't that into them, they help to keep things clean and organized. She's getting more interested in them now, pulling things out of them (she turned 2 in Feb).
