What a day!
I haven't stopped. I've turned my house completely upside down. Every room has been in every other room at one stage, and it's only half finished, sigh.
But it's been SO much fun. Organisation, change, and planning are some of my favorite things, so although it's been super hard work, I've loved every second.
This week I bought seven MASSIVE storage containers. 150 litres each. I could easily squash into one.
Something had to be done. I'd been storing a lot of my clothing in those big checkered bags, and they couldn't be stacked, they were falling over, and taking over the room, so I had to change things.
I spent the whole day unpacking, and repacking boxes, moving everything that's movable around, resulting in a well packed house, and two un-liftable bags to take to market when I eventually go.
My lounge-rooms are still hectic. There's stuff EVERYWHERE that I moved from my bedroom that still needs to find a home, but for now, I can actually see my bedroom floor. There is no checkered bags in sight, I've removed two racks, and I can MOVE!!
I can now get out of my bed in the middle of the night and not trip over a bucket of coathangers, bags of clothes, and way too many shoes.
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't messy, there was just too much stuff. So I needed to reorganise it so it could all fit better, and I didn't feel so claustrophobic.
Oh I should have done it a long time ago. It feels SO GOOD!!
Here is a part of my satisfaction from the day.
Happy dance happy dance!!
And here are a few things I picked up this week.
Fabulous 80's leather shoes. I've wanted a pair for ages, but I can't justify buying new things, so just waited it out and zing!! These were there waiting for me.
How cute is this matching vintage knitted hat and scarf.
Here is my new recycling bin.
An embroidered vest made partly of suede diamonds.
And lastly... REPRISE.
Happy dance happy dance.
Now I have to get stuck into the rest of the house.
Coming home tomorrow night after work will feel amazing.
