    I would wait for your Daughter's room. Two years will fly by. See how many quilts you can make in those two years. Or as like has been said before, just forget it and sew. Maybe stack some things you don't use often to make more room. Whatever you get rid of you will just have to buy again, what a waste of money.

    I just reorganized my stach...23 66 quart containers and I'm pooped BUT I felt so good when I was done. Labeled the containers so I know what is where. I suggest start small...don't toss anything till you are done. Dupicated of Tools...store someplace else...Mag...put in livingroom and look at during boring tv shows. When maids clean a hotel room they start in a corner and go around. Good luck. It's so much fun to have things tidied up.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    Just keep it and sew. My theory is that what you get rid of is much better than a replacement if you need it. Fold some of it down, slide under a bed, store in the garage, anywhere to hide it or get it out of your way, but get rid of it? No Way!

    I would not get rid of anything at all. If you do you may regret it later....what I would do is just reorganized and add some wall decor maybe paint...just refresh the whole room. And then SEW!!!!!!!
    Life is short, enjoy every second.

    Here's an idea that i do..

    My room is soooo full, not sure how it happened but theres days when its overwhelming... I was gifted a huge mat that was waaay to big for them.. I had no space either but it was FREE !!! I ended up putting it on the formal dining table and it fit !!!! SO when i need it, its there and when its not in use I cover it with a table cloth... and it becomes the dining room again..

    I wouldn't get rid of anything, in a week or two you will wish you had it.

    DON'T GET RID OF ANYTHING!! Just as sure as you do, you will regret it. Take it from me. Try several of the above suggestions, they are all good. I am also in one room and it does seem overwhelming sometimes. Then I think how lucky I am to have these things. Just take several deep breaths and go enjoy your sewing. I wish I had the prospect of more room in two years. It will pass quickly.
