Ok… I can’t believe I am showing you this but this video is a CURRENT look at my basement. The disaster that is my life. I’m not going to get too into it all – the visual will do that for you. Take a look.
You feel sorry for me right? I know. And are you ready for this? This is AFTER I cleaned out a TON of toys and made a HUGE donation to a local charity. I’m not kidding – I’m talking 12 bags or so. I can’t live like this anymore. Going down to the basement actually gives me anxiety. So, my husband and I decided that this would be the year that we would actually do something about it.
Our decision? We’ve teamed up with Easy Closets – a company that is KNOWN for providing customized organizational solutions for every room. A lot of people think that Easy Closets only works on closet spaces. Well, guess what!? I’m not working on any closet spaces. I’m working on my basement and am installing a large unit similar to the above graphic to help organize all the toys we have currently stacked in piles throughout the space.
We received our Easy Closets shipment two days ago and now Bill has a job to do. Put it all together. We are so very excited and cannot WAIT to get it done because now the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight. An organized life is within my grasp. I told you that I was going to get it together this year. I wasn’t kidding!
So I guess I can say goodbye to …. this. HORROR! I know. I know. It is just too much. I’m so ashamed to show this to you! UGH. But the truth is the truth and I have to be honest right now. Step 1 is admittance and acceptance, right? Three kids and a husband that refuses to throw anything away equals a PROBLEM. Well, no more…. thanks to Easy Closets.
