My wife and I spent three and a half hours on Sunday clearing stuff out of the storage room, organizing it, and then putting it all back. During that process I removed two old shower doors, some venetian blinds, and some scrap metal that the landlord had left in there from renovations for a previous tenant (he said he would come back and get them, but never did), as well as a lot of Rubbermaid bins full of memorabilia and stuff that we put away “to deal with later”. Well, apparently “later” was yesterday. I did most of the heavy lifting and moving around, while my wife did most of the shuffling through old papers and bric-a-brac.
But now all the camping stuff fits in one easy-to-get-to corner of the room, the Christmas stuff is away but still reachable, and there’s plenty of room for the stuff we don’t need right now but don’t want to get rid of just yet. Plus, I can walk into the storage room and get stuff without worrying about stuff falling on me or falling backwards into a surprise sinkhole. It wasn’t fun, but it’s made the storage room more manageable and the apartment more liveable (no more camping stuff piled in the office and dining room!). It wasn’t pretty, but at least it got done. 4 years ago
