A Bit of Cleaning

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Cleaning out our basement begins with picking things up off the floor and putting them on shelves where they belong. Except that the shelves are full, so step one is to find things on the shelves that can be discarded. High on the list are empty boxes for hardware that we no longer own.

I brought a bunch of boxes upstairs for disposal. The space around the escape window has now been cleared, which will be really useful if it is ever needed as an escape window. I am hoping we won't have to test that...

The good news is that it took less than an hour to sort through that stack of mess. That was, perhaps, less time than I had expected it would take.
