Seriously???

My hubs and I went to the storage unit and got all my Fall stuff.  Ok...now seriously, I have got to be brutal.....some of this has GOT to GO!



Oh Lord help me!

But then, I open the boxes and I say, Oh, look how cute, or pretty, or whatever......

BUT NO CEEKAY!  This house is only soooooo big. (Besides the fact that my husband says he is getting too old to be lugging this stuff back and forth!)

Wish me luck!  This is what I will be working on this week around Drs appts!!

I do the same thing. :) Of course I do only have two tubs....Even if its out of date I think "Oh I could transform it with paint, etc" Nothing gets tossed. Sigh.

Have a week as beautiful as you!

Hello Ceekay
Thanks for dropping by my blog. My stuff came out of one tote! My goodness, you do have a lot of things for fall. Have fun putting it all out, and then we can see it.
Happy Autumn.

I have the same problem! I HAVE to sort through mine and simplify things - but I love it all when I see it. Can't wait to see what's in your boxes!

I have a weakness for fall and HWeen decor, too, CeeKay!!! I need to get mine out, too!!! Enjoy every little item you've collected!! L, dana

Good luck!! I will be watching you, I need to copy. I mean I need some fall inspiration. I am doing fall decorating for the first time. Staying home is so much fun!

p.s. I have been making several trips to Goodwill, just incase. I have found a couple of really cute things.

Hi Ceekay, I had the same problem when we moved. It didn't help to have Steve looking over my shoulder to see what I was keeping and giving away!

MORE is always BETTER! That's MY motto! Can't wait to see all your 'stuff!'

Ceekay...I say put out all of those things that hold a special place in your heart...every little one!! Last year I played hardball and didn't even look in my bins, I just added some natural things from here and there. It was a bit different for me and an easy clean up, but I know that it's the memories that count. This year will be different!!

XO,
Jane

I need to do the same thing, Ceekay. Good luck on your Dr. appts this week. xo Diana

I think I just have about 4 Fall bins! I can't get rid of anything either! Hope your appointments go really well! Take care!

I may have that much stuff as well. I have my scarecrow collection, cutesy Halloween stuff, pumpkins, Thanksgiving turkeys, cornucopias, etc.!! I'll do a little at a time, saving Thanksgiving for last.

Have fun decorating!

It IS hard to clean out...fun stuff just starts to accumulate! Hope your appts go well!

You and I are going to be doing the same exact thing is seems. I do the same...open a carton and say.."ohhh..how sweet." This year..if I don't use it..I will lose it. I am really determined.
I am just going to go ahead and put out Halloween things. It's just too much work to dig through it all again.

Love,
Mona

I dare not even talk about all the tubs and boxes of Fall "stuff" I have stashed, yikes! have a great week, Ceekay!!

Oh it will all be so pretty. Hugs, Marty

Vee said...

I do most sincerely wish you all the best with this chore not to mention the doctor appointments. Maybe you can add an autumn tea party to the line-up and require that everyone take something home! =D

I know the feeling. Have fun sorting through the tubs and getting your home all dressed for fall.

Too much stuff! I hate that when it happens. It's difficult to get rid of stuff. George Carlis did a great video on "Stuff". Hugs, Linda

Liz Hockamier said...

Good Luck! I did the same thing this year. If I didn't use it I got rid of it.

Now! For Christmas....

Maria Elena said...

Hehehe. The story of my life! :) I am always carrying stuff up and down the stairs. It is crazy how much we can accumulate. You can do it! :)

Maureen said...

Ha! I seriously need to destash some of my holiday decor too... I only took out about half of what I have boxed up for display this year! I do the same for every holiday it seems.

Kelly said...

I have the same problem with some stuff. I want to keep it all just in case I may use it one day even if I don't use it at one time. I just cleaned out some holiday stuff last year and will be taking it to a consignment store to sell. It felt good to clean it out even though I still liked it.

Ceekay, I know what you mean. Luckily our daughter has a new house too so I can give her alot of my stuff and she LOVES getting it! I am anxious to see what you do decorate:) XO
