Organizational goodness

We're working on finishing our basement to make more living space in our house, and we're making headway!  And, we're getting organized (which just warms my heart...).

So far, we've had an egress window installed, the furnace/AC installed, and we've started getting everything out of the basement - which is no small task!  We've been working at selling stuff on Craigslist and Ebay, donating stuff to the Salvation Army, and giving stuff away.  It feels so good to be getting rid of excess stuff, especially when someone else will be able to use it!

Now to the fun part.  We've started working on what we want it to look like (I find that to be much more fun that discussing which direction pipes and wires will be running, imagine that!).  And, as I started collecting samples, I realized we were going to have to find a way to stay organized, because I'm finding that there are a LOT of decisions to be made.

So, the basement project of the morning?  Organizing all the samples and creating a space for all the paperwork, permits, receipts, and everything else that comes with the basement.

Isn't it just lovely....feels better already!  And Yarbo's contribution to the morning?  Well, as you can see, he is blissfully napping in the background.


  1. I think you need to add a reaction button that says: This reminds me why I think Kelli is so awesome.

  2. I love organization. This post made me happy :)
