Hubby and I got the Christmas stuff down from the attic.  I thought he was NEVER going to stop handing down Rubbermaid's.  There were 18 bins full of Christmas STUFF!  That doesn't even include two artificial trees, a box full of small lighted fake fir trees and even more STUFF in my storage room that can't go into the attic.

I think I need an electrical charge attached to my behind and every time I am tempted to buy MORE STUFF it  would send a "shocking" reminder that I don't need any more STUFF!!!!

ARGH!! I say that every year but then when the after-Christmas sales come around...I cave. I can't wait to see it all out :)

So was Jim grumbling every step of the way? Or was he a good sport about getting it all down?

Oh my God, that is a lot of stuff!
I have 4 or 5 boxes, and I thought that was a lot! Still wouldn't mind the electrical charge!

ROLF!!! I WISH I had taken a picture of my bedroom when Rick took everything down from my decorations! Your room looks nice and neat. Mine was TRASHED!! Not only that, I had him do it black friday so I had to deal with it when I got back from shopping. I am SICK Connie SICK I love your idea about being shocked though. I went out three times for more STUFF!! LOL

PS. I forgot to say that I did get rid of some stuff. I sent it to my daughter's HAHAHA if she doesn't want it SHE can get rid of it. ")

Oh wow!
You will have your work cut out for you.

I downsized a few years ago and do SO much less. Now if I would quit doing crafts....that would help me not accumulate more.

I look forward to seeing the finished product.
Then you need to come to my house.
