Mission Organization {Before}

Mission Organization is taking place at our house so we don't end up on an episode of Hoarders.  Someone should declare a state of emergency in our garage.  This unfortunate manmade disaster has been here since the end of November when we brought down all of the Christmas decorations from the attic.  We decorated the house, but we never put the boxes back in the attic.  If you look closely you might even find some left over Halloween decorations.  Yep, it's pretty bad in there.

Mission Organization started about a week ago and it has gone on about a week longer than we wanted it to.  We all came down with a stomach virus several days ago, and that put an end to any cleaning and organizing we had planned for the garage.   I have "After" photos to share, but I don't have that post ready yet.


When we'd pull into the garage, we'd know we pulled up far enough when the front of the Highlander bumped the boxes.  We'd see the stack of boxes shake and then we'd know we'd gone far enough.  Seriously!

This view shows how we could only enter the Highlander from one side when leaving the door from the house.  The closest path from the house to the driver's side door was blocked by the big stack of boxes.  Whoever was driving had to walk around the passenger side and around the back to get to the driver's side.  It was pretty inconvenient and kind of funny, too.

This is in front of the Passat.  I cleared a few of the boxes out of the way so we could walk in front of it.  We had so many boxes left over from Christmas that the trash pick up looked like we'd just moved in.  God bless our garbageman. 

I'll be back later this week to share Mission Organization {After}. 

Some of you are sharing your organization post and it's been such an encouragement to me.  If you have any helpful tips or advice to share, I'm all ears.
