Tidying Up

“Mrs. Darling was married in white, and at first she kept the books perfectly, almost gleefully, as if it were a game, not so much as a Brussel sprout was missing; but by and by whole cauliflowers dropped out…” The Adventures of Peter Pan
When Mr. Cookie and I first moved into this apartment, we were so organized!  Things had designated spots!  I spent hours scouring and organizing our tiny basement.  Then, two years passed and as life sped up, things like organization took a back seat (especially in parts of the house that were rarely seen by non-Cookies).  As of two weekends ago, our basement:

Something had to be done.  It was horrendous. And, being as sensitive as I am to disorder, my mind was starting to resemble the basement.  Mr. Cookie, feeling similarly, purchased several large plastic containers.  We tackled the basement as a team, head on, with the understanding that a large amount of the accrual would be donated before the end of the year.  We also went through the upstairs at the same time looking for more stuff to get rid of. It got a lot worse before it got better.  It took days (weeks, even) to get the upstairs back in order once everything had been taken in for donation.  It was exhausting.  I think I might still be sneezing dust colored snot.  But, here is the glorious after shot:

I love working as a team with my beloved husband.  Together, we move mountains.
