  • Do you really need it ALL? I would do 3 bins at a time and do a KEEP< SALE< TRASH pile.

  • It sounds like you already have your categories set out for you..seasonal clothes, games, decorations etc. Just label a piece of paper with one of your categories then tape it on the box and just put that stuff in that box. I agree with the other person just do a couple ever day or so so its not overwhelming

  • OMG, that sounds like my garage. I cant just organize just 3 at a time, as its all mixed up. i have stuffed crafts, junk, holiday, etc in everything. plus i still have boxex of stuff i haven even un packed. i have lived here two almost three years & its getting worse out there....i keep saying, ill get to it, but it scares me like a bad movie...LOL!

  • hey im with you on that lol i do need all of the stuff because it is all seasonal things and plus work stuff. trust me i must have through out about 15 storage bins full of junk. i just threw it all out and this is what i am left with. it feels like if i run out of space in the box that i put it in another box and then it gets lossed. ahhh this is so over whelming but iam going to tackle it today
