Who woulda thought I'd get so excited about a garage?

We decided that we the only way to continue on the basement project, and still have a bit of space down there, was to organize the garage and then put all the stuff in the basement into the garage (toys, games, etc.).  This will be temporary until we get a wall unit with shelves and drawers.  So at about 10:00 AM yesterday we started emptying the garage.  This is what it looked like around 1:00 PM.

But check out the view when you turn around.

Fortunately, we live in the desert and it isn't supposed to rain for a week or more.  Why does that matter?  Because most of the stuff is still in the driveway.  I have gone through a ton of stuff and we have a huge pile of stuff for a garage sale.  It will feel good to actually know where things are.  

Now we have to tackle the attic of the garage.  It's full, too.  (see the stairs in the back?)  We want to empty it so that it can be a play room/music room.  Maybe even a photography studio some day?????

Is that a Range Rover I spy in the driveway?!

Ella looks to have grown a foot! She must be very excited about returning to school.

You have way too much stuff. Stuff makes me nervous. When my husband travels, I throw stuff out. I hate moving, and then years later finding out I still haven't unpacked stuff. That stuff has to go.

My goal is to get my stuff to fit in the back of a pick up truck.

My kids will have to ride in another vehicle.

Oh, my goodness. Have no mercy. Sell what you can at the yard sale and give the rest to goodwill. Good luck.
