so, for the last month, we (me and the kids) have gone room by room. every closet, every drawer, even the stuff on the walls, every dish, every game, EVERYTHING. if we don't USE it or LOVE it, we got rid of it! we have gotten rid of TONS of stuff. lots of trash. lots to donate.
i didn't take pictures except of the basement. this was the worst area of the house by FAR. and the most rewarding!
