Boxes, Boxes

I've been going through the stuff in our storage unit and repacking the squished cardboard boxes into plastic containers. It's a big task and it has started to take over our living space. I'm kind of at the point where I'm ready to start stacking my containers in a corner and out of the way but need to wait for my husband for that task.

I'm already looking forward to this project's completion. It will be a 2 or 3 weeks I think before our living space normalizes again. Of course this is so slow because of my limitations.

Going through all of this stuff has me thinking about things I haven't in a while. Mostly inconsequential stuff like miniature gulf - I haven't done that in years. Then I found that we own video tapes of movies that we can see streaming instantly on Netflix for free. We even still have 2 or 3 of some of our movies - why do we still have more than one of anything? Some of the stuff we own is just silly.

Have you ever found crazy stuff in your home, not really sure why you have it still?


  1. yes! We have so much stuff that I don't know why we have it. We have VHS copies of some of the movies we have on DVD now. Crazy research books that are 50 years old and older. I haven't been to our storage unit in a while and need to, but I am afraid of what I will come up against there. I have to do it before it gets too cold out and then we have to wait until spring.

  2. We rent a storage unit, and next week we will be going through it and deciding what stays, and what goes, and where it goes if it does stay or go. I'm not at all excited about this, but it will be nice to save that 100 bucks a month!
