happyhomemaker25 Posted July 6, 2012 Share Posted July 6, 2012 I've been busy for the past two weeks trying to make everything fit into our home. I've rearranged, reorganized, purged, decluttered, pick your word and insert here! I'm back to the original set up... kind of. I have the great room of our home set up for our school room and place to eat. I have a small front room with a big couch and over stuffed chair and our big t.v. set up. I had to break up our bookcases in that room and now have three small ones for the kids books in the great room, two big ones for homeschooling in the great room, and two big ones that I am looking for a place to put with the all of my books. I have the other small front room set up for the play room and need to finish setting it up for crafts and sewing. My room is a disaster and I won't even go into the kitchen right now. I don't see anything else I can get rid of, but I look around and I still feel like we are about to bust out of this house. It was so BIG when we bought it six kids ago when we were DINKs. (Double income no kids) I consolidated all of my books down to two bookshelves and the kids books down to three small ones. That's only keeping the good books and some readers. My SIL gave us the big couch and chair and I took them because now everyone will have a place to sit. The kids love them. I also have my treadmill which I have to keep because it's the only exercise I really get in this heat. It folds up and I store it by the t.v. which works ok. I know I'm just whining, but some days I get so discouraged. Every surface in this house is covered with books and papers and if I clean it up then I get in trouble, because someone had something there and now it's lost forever. :glare::001_huh: I did not throw it away just put it in a basket to corral all the papers. Ok, I think I'm done. Back to trying to find some peace in this chaos!! :001_smile: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
