ASSIGNMENT #3: Creating “Stations”
Hello everyone and I apologize for the delay! Life got in the way once again! (Has a way doing that doesn’t it?)
Today’s assignment is easy. During this month-long challenge, you’re going to need “stations” for things in process. Since in my particular move, our stuff will be going in different shipments, then I need to have ways to organize each of these. Perhaps as you begin, you need to create a “goes to storage” shipment (I wouldn’t actually suggest shoving stuff down in your basement until we get to the point where we start sorting/purging the basement, though!). Or perhaps you need a “goes to charity” or “prep for consignment sale” pile.
Regardless, I have found it easiest if I pre-plan these stations. Often this will be a corner of my living room! In this move, I’ll probably have a living room corner, entry way space, playroom (basement space) corner, and eventually our car port will have to hold stuff as well. For those family members who are a bit clueless about this crazy challenge you’ve started here, a good idea might be to label each area with a sign – “Consignment sale pile – DO NOT TOUCH.” Or “To Storage Area.” It might help ease the mind of your significant other that you have not gone off the deep end and become a crazy hoarder piling things to the ceiling. 😉
My husband is at the point where he just ignores me, he’s so used to it. But I do have to point the piles out and ask him to please stop cleaning up after me, there is a method to my madness!
And it might look like madness for a little bit, I admit. But there is a plan to this madness, and it will all improve by the end of the month!
