This room was saved for last because it was the most dreaded by Grace. We tackled it in 10 hours... yes TEN. They donated a TiVo, TV, printer/fax, large shelving unit, tons of picture frames, over 50 books & VHS tapes- when I took the items to Goodwill in Point Loma, the employees were very happy to receive everything! We also threw away at least 5 kitchen size bags of trash including lots of worn out wire hangers, old paperwork, defunct chargers/power sources, and empty electronic item boxes. The behemoth shelving unit in this spare bedroom was definitely an eyesore. Grace's goal was to condense the items on that shelving unit into the closet and get rid of the shelving unit entirely. She wants to be able to have overnight guests stay in the room. The bookshelf was also a bit out of control with the vast amount of CDs, VHS tapes, DVDs, Blu-Rays, video games, and (of course) books. Many were donated and this freed up space to make sure everything can fit now. A little dusting, vacuuming, filing, and straightening went a long way. ♥
Yes there were office supplies in this drawer before, but hey, now Grace can actually see them!
Behemoth shelving unit- GONE!
Organizing the books and VHS tapes- oh yes!
Things aren't on the floor now- everything has a home & there's even a little space to grow the collection (:
Where was the office paper and photo paper in this junk drawer? At the very bottom covered in clutter! Now it is easily accessible.
This defunct filing system was set up in 2003. How did I know that? That is when the filing of bills stopped! Now instead of using it for financial records, I've designated it to be the spot in the home for all user manuals (the TV, PSP, Xbox, Wii, DVD player, BluRay player, cable box, laptops, computers, ipods, ipads, cell phones, cameras, and various other items!).
Thanks Grace for a wonderful 6 sessions! I hope to be back for a few touch-up sessions in the future. Since I have finished my last 5 clients' jobs I am now taking new clients. Here's to 2012!!
