It's Been A Long Time

It seems like forever since I last posted, but in reality it hasn't even been a week. This week just seems to be crazy.

Hans and I are still in the midst of unpacking, and there just seems to always be another box. Not everything is out of Dad's yet, and there's still tons of stuff at Mom's. Hans and I are going through the great give away, and are just trying to get rid of as much stuff as possible. Honestly, though, a lot of what we have isn't junk. Sure, there's some stuff we don't have to keep (wedding dress, etc.) but is it really so wrong that we are? The problem comes in putting it somewhere.

Part of me feels that everything which used to be in storage should be given away, but then we'd be giving away Hans' trains, and that seems like a super BAD idea. Then, what about things from vacations. We have some really nice things from Asia, but no place to put them. Do we keep them for later or get rid of them now? And DVDs; how do you decide what to keep?

I'm trying my best to not be a pack rat, but that's difficult for me. I used to be really bad at it, but have definitely reformed (small college dorms will do that). Still, though, any tips on storage and organizing would be greatly appreciated!



  1. Not sure if this is an option for you - but what about a rented storage unit? I used to use on at the Uhaul storage place on Blvd across from the diamond. You can get a locker for $20/month. It's 4X4X4 and you will be surprised how much you can fit in that space.

  2. Glad you know that giving the trains away is a BAD idea :) Good luck.
