A Peek Into My Weekend | Moving and Re-OrganizingThis post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more details.
Yesterday afternoon I began the arduous task of cleaning out our office. We decided a while ago that this would be the best room for the baby. It’s downstairs and close to our bedroom so it just made sense. Now came the hard part – moving and re-organizing.
(If you’re like me, the first thing you notice in this picture is the very, very sad carpet protector. This little puppy has needed replaced for a long time but I’ve been too cheap to buy another one. I can think of quite a few ways I’d rather spend $40!)
I’m amazed at the amount of “stuff” I’ve crammed into these drawers. I kept most of it but found myself pitching quite a few items. And Trent will be excited because I made a pile of goodies for him to look through and see if he wants to keep. (Yes, I say that he’ll be excited with heavy sarcasm. It’s his least favorite thing to do. But, I’ve learned never to throw anything away without asking first.)
When we decided on this room for the baby, I was in a quagmire because I wasn’t sure what we’d do with our piano. I didn’t want to get rid of it, and the only other place for it was upstairs. If you’ve ever moved a piano before, you know how heavy they are. Well, there was no way Trent was going to agree to moving this beast up a flight of stars. Thankfully my mom is going to take it and I can play it anytime I want!
See that pile of CDs beside the piano? I have no idea what to do with those. I don’t really listen to them anymore, but I don’t have the heart to get rid of them. What do you do with your CDs?
My new office will be upstairs in the corner of our spare bedroom. We already had this desk up there so it was the perfect location.
It may not look like there was a lot of stuff in my old office, but I can’t count the amount of trips I made up and down the steps. (I even recruited Jayden to help when he came over.)
And here are the after pictures. Now Trent can recruit some friends and move these pieces to their new homes.
(Side note) If you’re wandering why there’s a blanket on the floor, that’s Princess’ bed that she lays in when I’m working in the office. She likes to burrow in the blanket. I’m going to try to find a cloth dog house for this room because we all now that we’ll be spending quite a bit of time in here. Okay, I’ll admit it, she’s just a bit spoiled!
I kept working until my new desk area was exactly the way I wanted it. And, the stuff on top of the dresser…well, it still needs to find a home.
I’m super glad to have this project finished! My next project is cleaning out the closet in the old office and finding a filing cabinet to store our financials.
What have you been up to this weekend?
