Minimalism Week #21 -Spare Room (AKA The Room of Shame...)

The downstairs spare bedroom has become a dumping ground of sorts.  We frantically try to sort it out when my in-laws visit so that they can find a place to sleep!  I started to work on this room this weekend.

Here are my (shameful) before pictures:



Oh goodness. This makes me feel like crawling under a rock, but that's not going to happen.  Anyway...

I sorted through the pink totes, containers and bags that contained my daughter's clothes.  I pared down the amount the clothes so that they fit into the two totes.  I placed all of the baby items that my daughter has outgrown into her bassinet for storage.  I rearranged shelves and sorted through gift wrap and cards.  I tend to keep gift bags and I attempt to reuse them.  A few of the bags that I had kept became damaged so I got rid of them.  I gave my Mom all of my scrapbooking supplies since I haven't scrapbooked in years.  I opened some totes and containers and found more work so this project is only about half done.

Here are my progress pictures:


Much better, right?  There is still a lot more to do.  All of this needs to be dealt with:


Ugh.  Onward and upward, right?
