The Basement Report: Going, Going, Gone!
Posted November 11, 2008on:
Vintage Daddy took two loads of stuff to the dump, as well as a load we donated to Value Village. We have one more pile that we’re taking to an organization that serves homeless families, and we need to hire someone to haul away an ancient (and enormous) freezer and an equally ancient rowing machine someone gave us ages ago.
There were certain things we had trouble with: some of the baby equipment and clothing, and a big box of china that my husband’s mom (who died too young) handpainted.
We agreed to set some space aside for “stuff we can’t deal with now” and move on. There’s still plenty to do before we can start to clean and paint.
It’s very exciting to talk about plans for the space. We’ll still have storage for kitchen and pantry overflow; sporting equipment, luggage, those kinds of things. For the living space, we’re planning a workout area and a nice, large play/art area for my daughter. I think she’ll enjoy being down there more and more as she gets older.
