Since December, I've been on a mission to get things under control around here. I must be making progress, because our daughter observed recently that the content of our lives has now been reduced to plastic tubs. This photo shows only a few of the many, many tubs that are now in our basement storage area.
As I've been organizing stuff, I've been thinking hard about what to keep. I've given some things away and taken quite a bit to Goodwill. But there are lots of items that I want to save or that I don't have the heart to get rid of right now, so into the tubs they go. The tubs have eliminated a lot of visual clutter from our daily living space. Plus, they're stackable and fairly watertight, and having the contents organized will make downsizing much easier in the future.
