Still continuing on the Pre-Vacation Cleaning Binge Rampage...
Emily started on this one for me by straightening up the books, which were an absolute disaster before. I sat and stared at the shelves while I was watching a movie last night, and just couldn't take it anymore.
I finished this at about 2:30 this morning.
Since I don't have a bedroom, my dresser is in the living room. Unfortunately, this leads to it turning into a catch-all, much like the cedar chest beside the loveseat...not to mention the floor around the area.
Whoa. I've never quite seen it like this before. (Ignore the toys on the floor in front of the TV. The boys were playing hard today while I was cleaning.)
The pile to the left of the loveseat (including the red crate) was about 10 years' worth of papers and pictures and general crap. 3 shredder containers later, it's been condensed into one box, sorted by kid, ready to be put into scrapbooks or filed, whichever needs to be done with it.
