(Finally! got some decluttering done!) We are moving to the southern part of Korea in a couple of weeks and DH had agreed that while we did not want to keep a bunch of this clutter forever, he didn't want to get rid of it "just yet". He finally! took the argument: If not now, when? I am on top of the world! He likes that the little walk-in closet is 'walk-able' again I haven't any hope of making inroads into his clothing issue, but these 3 big bags are a huge win in the household stuff department! He has gained weight in the 3 years that he has been here and he will not get rid of a stitch of clothes as he says he is going to lose it all...we'll see. The only way anyone loses weight in his family is surgically and that would involve those needles and knives he hates/fears.
Love that shelf, HollyAnn. I had a high shelf that went around my kitchen that I loved for DH's beer stein and coffee mug collection. It is so nice to have a "place" for things like that.
