Hi, I've never posted in this forum before, but I just wanted to share my story. Actually, it just happened yesterday. I'd been wanted to get rid of these three, huge, gaudy coffee tables (one table, two end tables). They were seriously huge, from the 70's with big drawers or cabinets underneath. Way too big for our 700sf duplex. We had our carpet cleaned on Saturday and it looked so nice with them gone (in the kitchen). Also, everything else was picked up (toys, magazine holder, basket of diapers, random clutter), it looked so nice in here, made me feel less scatterbrained. While the carpet was being cleaned, I took a walk around the block with dog and baby and walked past a garage sale. There was a very cute, small coffee table there. Later on that day I had DP stop and offer $10. We got it. Long story shorter, this one $10 coffee table inspired me to go through my house and get rid of about 4 garbage bags full of stuff. This morning, I feel absolutely wonderful! I still have some sorting left, but boy, I've been feeling stressed out lately and this severely helped. Maybe I'll try to post before and after pics sometime. Anyway, just wanted to share that it all started with a $10 coffee table and some rearranging.
