Unboxing

I worked on cleaning up some of the boxes in my house. I started in the kitchen. I continue to have a difficult time deciding what to keep and what to get rid of. I would like to not have any excess stuff, but when I open a box, and there are actual useful things in it, I feel compelled to keep them. I mean, I only make lemon pudding once or twice a year, but it is nice to have a juicer thingy that you jam into lemons to squish all the juice out, so I have decided to keep it.

Still, I’ve made a little progress.

BEFORE:

So much junk.

So much junk.

AFTER:

A little progress.

A little progress.

    Does anyone else think these BEFORE and AFTER shots remind them of one of those Spot the Difference puzzles? I can see that a white covered bowl and the beige round thingies underneath it are now on boxes further right than they had been…one entire box on top of the Zappos one is gone, along with the pot/pan that had rested there…this is sort of fun!

    Good luck unpacking and deciding This alone reminds me that if and when we ever move I plan on just lighting a match. (Note to our insurance carrier – kidding!)

    I would characterize that as more than a little progress.

    I don’t like throwing things out. I prefer ever more elaborate systems for storing things.

    Oh I think you made good progress. To me any progress is good. I’d celebrate doing one box.

    No chance you’d just label those things like time capsules? Could be fun after a decade, y’know.

    Or wait – wrap them like presents!!

    Sorry. Not being helpful over here.

    Excellent progress. One box at a time, and you’ll get that job done. Carry on, good sir.
