Junk room.

I just don't get it. Do other people not have "stuff?". Or are they better at hiding it? Are they better at throwing stuff away? Is their space more manageable?

I am not in a happy place this morning- I am decluttering a spare room so my niece and nephew will have somewhere to sleep. It is a small room- doesn't have *that* much stuff- boxes, the old crib, my guitar, stuff like that- but I am annoyed with myself that I let it get like that. I should also add I have 2 more rooms that look the same (only bigger). They aren't part of my day to day living space- so it isn't a hendrence to me.

Ugh. Sorry- I needed to whine before I head back in there. I would much rather be sewing.

I don't have a junk room!  We live in a two bedroom apartment, with no storage space.  Well we have a little storage space, but my camping stuff is in there.  As far as my crap, I am still slowly getting rid of things.  So much I want to do, and never enough time, or I just have other priorities instead of that.  lol  Good Luck!

I don't have a junk room.  We live in a 960 sq foot home and don't even have an attic, basement, or garage.  We have 2 bedrooms and then Delaney sleeps in the loft.

We do have 4 sheds outside though.  The bottom one (way down at the bottom of the hill) has the kid's too small stuff in case we have another one.  The biggest one is hubby's "shop".  The metal one holds bikes, the wagon, the lawnmower, etc.  And then there is a smaller wooden one that right now holds everything else we need to store but will be a chicken coup once we finish redoing our deck and such.

We dont have a junk room but we have an attic so thats where all our stuff goes. Lol. I cant see it and I dont go up there so it doesnt bother me. In our old house we didnt have an attic or a spare room so I was better about taking stuff to the good will or tossing it.

 Oh hun, if you could see my house.  You'd feel worlds better.  I need some serious organization. I'm so lost and can't even feel like I can start b/c I'm so overwhelmed.

I don't have a junk room. I have a garage. Right now it's a disaster. Lol. Until the addition and remodeling are done we only have 2 bedrooms. Dd has one, ds the other and dh and I have our dressers and king size bed in the living room. Can't wait till the addition is done! I need more space, especially with the baby due in december. :/
