I have been helping my son with his basement bedroom....have to say, what a mess! Give a kid a room that is out of sight, and it is definitely out of mind, and it sure gets out of control. Seems like a couple of times a year I need to help both kids think about what they are holding on to and make sure that a purge of sorts happens.
They usually resist, but when we are done, it feels so much better. I know they would begrudgingly agree.
As I was coming up the old staircase with bags of donations, this was the view that greeted me. Decluttering is fascinating, no? What is she bringing up now??? :)
