out with the old...

We're hoping to renovate the bonus room before Turkey arrives, which means we have to clear out all of the stuff that's accumulated down there.

OK, I cheated. That's a photo from the day after we moved in. But it certainly felt like we had that much stuff there just the other day.

Next weekend's neighborhood garage sale provided enough incentive to at least start sorting through the various boxes and milk crates. Granted, this would have been a lot easier if we'd managed to pare down our possessions prior to moving in last year, but nevermind that. We made great progress and now have 15-20 boxes to donate to the neighborhood community center's sale.

Now the kitchenette holds only the boxes we know we're keeping.

Then, we'll shop the other garage sales and find new stuff to bring home.
