    Wow! I haven't followed this thread for a few weeks, and now that I took a look-see, I'm impressed by all the progress.

    First, SusieQOH, you must've gone gangbusters to get your results. Seems fast to me, anyway, because it sounded like you were overwhelmed and not particularly good at decluttering/organizing on your own. But gosh, so much progress and decisiveness! I'm thrilled for you that you're enjoying a freer sewing space and have no guilt.

    Rob, so do you and DH stay right beside your decluttering team each day for 6 hours, telling them what to keep/not keep? That sounds exhausting. Liberating, but exhausting. Or, will they take a couple hours just emptying room and then you join them in the sorting process? Will you each be working with 2 on the team, tackling a certain area, or both together with the 4-person team? I'm curious how the logisitics work and how you stay focused. I am mentally good for 1.5 -2 hours at a time, and then I start feeling cranky, tired, and have a tendency to just want to either make tidy piles (rather than purge) or feel careless (Just throw it all away!). LOL

    SarahBethie, you are inspiring! And you are so right about the decluttering getting easier as you go.

    Thank you. I’m on the tail end of things. The last two weeks have been slow. My daughter has a nasty virus and I’m battling fatigue. I’ve avoided getting sick but my body is expending energy keeping the germs at bay. Nevertheless, I’m pressing forward.

    I picked up some storage bins for the refrigerator and several lazy susans. They’ll come in handy for the pantry and craft items. I have lots! I finally counted the mountain of change I’ve amassed. It came to $167 and I’m treating myself to lightfast colored pencils for sketching.

    The sewing area is clear. I’m adding more storage items this week. And I have an idea of the cutting cart I want. I’m debating whether I’ll use an Ikea hack or build it myself. I start woodworking class in one week. The sewing class is underway.

    I’d like a glass drafting desk. But I don’t know if its feasible for crafting. I have 2 scrapbooking machines. And I’m uncertain if I’ll be comfortable sewing on the cutting table or prefer a desk.

    On an unrelated note I’m enjoying white lilies from the farmers market. The aroma is lovely and the heads are huge and heavy! Overall, I feel more relaxed and I’m considering other projects I can undertake. I’m not a neat freak. But I love beautiful spaces. I’ll upend a room to increase the aesthetic appeal. My body pays the price later on.

    How are you progressing?
