    I am glad to see that you are clearing your way to a productive sewing room even if it ruffles a few feathers at the time. But interesting enough, most of the time the stuff is not really important. When we went to DD for a visit, we put the last boxes of her "kept items" that had been stored in her childhood bedroom (which is now sewing room). She finally went through them recently (as she moved into a new home) and low and behold she consolidated all to one tote. DS was to visit last year and go through stuff but didn't. So on a trip out to visit him, I filled a suitcase with "his stuff" (flying Southwest-no fee for 2nd bag). Going in December and doing the same. Then it is time to either ship the rest-he's paying or I am tossing. His deep closet with shelves is my fabric storage and those pesty childhood boxes are in my way!!!

    You go girl and tell the kids to get it out of here.

    We are lucky that we live on a farm and have room in the barns. My house is full so nothing can come in here so the barn is the only place. So many people rent storage units and I always wonder why? Unless you have a boat or something that you can't store, why do you want to keep stuff stored elsewhere. Sell it, give it away, toss it. I took over two bedrooms when our children moved out for my sewing rooms and nobody can put anything in them. It's mine now. LOL

    As I read this, I was thinking about how prevalent storage units are these days. They cost quite a lot - I've heard some are $80+ a month. We have had a lot of stuff stored here, too, still have closets full in a couple of bedrooms, and some boxes in the attic from our four daughters. Years ago we had a barn and ended up storing stuff for one of the boy friends and some adult friends of ours. Had to tear the barn down and ended up having to pay to have some of the junk carted away. The BF left some old kitchen chairs (I hear he lives in Michigan now. LOL) I painted them to match my kitchen and threw out the ones that were broken. Funny how many folks have the same experience. We also had one "boomerang" - she went away, she came back, she went away, she came back. Also some of their friends stayed here short term off and on. Now they are all on their own and I'm still trashing a box here and there. It's bad enough that hubby and I have lots of stuff that should be pitched out.

    It will feel so good once you get it all organized. I just finished last weekend and I love it.
