Keep Working Wednesday

My friend, Jean, said, "Did Tackle it Tuesday bleed over into Keep Working Wednesday?"

LoL Actually, it did! (Not to mention, Throw it Out Thursday!) ;o)

Here's that dreaded pool table, before:

And after:

We even shot a few games of pool last night, and that hasn't happened in ages.

Now, the picture might make one think that I just piled everything on the table to the left, but that pile's actually headed for Goodwill tomorrow. And the garbage bag on the floor is, well, garbage. I was truly relentless in my decluttering, and truly determined to figure out where the rest of the stuff belonged.

But honestly, I'm still far from done. There's a big shelf full of miscellaneous books and board games, a ton of video tapes to sort through, and one last stubborn pile of things that doesn't seem to belong anywhere. But the difference in my attitude when I walk down there is huge.

I do see some light at the end of this tunnel. ;o)

I am so impressed, Heather!!!! The throwing out is always the hardest part for me as I want to keep everything. I might need it someday. I have to admit, though, it is getting easier to throw out as I get older. I am a pile person too, so I always have a couple of them around too. Keep us posted on your cleaning. Am glad someone is getting some done.
