Since having a baby, or should I say getting a baby? I have come to realize that we are now in a different stage of our life and need to accomodate room for the baby's things. Our house never seemed cluttered before but now all of a sudden its like we have all this stuff and just "stuff". Our city has a clean up day coming in 3-4 weeks, where basically whatever you bring to their site on a trailer they will get rid for $10 a load. So tonight DH is parking a trailer by our garage so I can sort through what to keep and what to toss. Also I am going to be contacting someone in town who sells your stuff on ebay. Just for a little extra money and again to get rid of it. We have no freecycle here. I am super excited to start. We really need to toss our college stuff, make a pile to donate, and a pile for ebay. Also will be listing a few bigger items to sell in the paper, like our fooseball table, 3 big bar stool, and heavier items. As I go room by room I am hoping to also improve on storage ideas. My DH is a pack rat so this isn't going to be easy. I could probably be done in a weekend if he weren't home. If anyone has done this any tips or suggestions would be great. I plan on updating this thread and taking before and after pics and posting at the end.
