Hoarders 02536

I am slightly embarrassed to actually post these photos but they are reality and an accurate depiction of how I have let things go because I am not sure I am going to be able to this "hugantic" next step. I decided to tackle my garage as my 1st step. Ultimately I was thinking as I packed less important non-daily items I could start to stack the boxes in the garage.
The entire left side minus a pile of empty boxes in not my stuff so I am also still held by old ties. See how this move is going to finally end it all for good? This is about more than just the "stuff".

OUCH! That looks awful.
So I rolled out of bed,  Click'd up, plugged in the iPod and got right to work.
The kids were with Dad so I was able to work quickly and dump a lot of stuff. I posted some things on Craig's List and was able to give away a bike and a couple of bureaus. This made my heart happy.
The trash man may need a bribe but I have until Thursday to figure that out. I bagged most of this up so I hope they will take most of it. Christmas produced almost the same and they took that. Fingers crossed.
The end result took only about 2 hours and like I said a good amount isn't mine but it is better than it was. It is also a good step in the right direction.

Also, note that if a kid uses the garage floor as a sandbox so will the cat. Gross! The wet spot is now bleach.
