Cleaning out

March 10th, 2012

So we met with a realtor this past week to discuss getting Chateau vB on the market.

It was a great meeting, but a bit overwhelming at the same time.  We have approximately 6 weeks to check off everything on the To-Do list.  {Said list includes tiling, painting, landscaping, trim work, drywall, de-cluttering, more painting, and staging. } Looks like Mr. vB and I will be pulling some late nights and full weekends to make our deadline of May 1st.

So today I took the plunge and started the de-cluttering process.  First up was the pantry.

It’s such a great big old space, but over time it had accumulated quite a bunch of stuff.

So I took everything out that was not a food item and put it all on the dining room table.  Then from the table I made 3 piles- Trash, Goodwill and Storage.  I wish I had taken a photo for you. It was nap time so I was rushing to get it done before my little helper woke up, but it was a Big Ol Mess!!

The majority of the stuff ended up in the Goodwill pile and then straight into the back of my car!

Here’s what the pantry looks like now.

Better, but I still have some work to do.

Tomorrow I am going to dig into the bedroom closets while Mr. vB tackles tiling the 1/2 bath floor.

If anyone out there in blog land is bored and/or has a thing for going through other people’s junk give us a shout!  We could use the help!  De-Junking the Basement is up next!

    hey there – if mr. vb doesn’t want to tile or gets tired….the guy that I got to redo mine…keep up with me. My first Brazilian House Keeper (the best one)’s husband from many years ago is a flooring guy. He did it for me for a fraction of the cost…mind you his boys are dressed like mini Carter’s tho, bc I passed down all of his clothes to her son when she was here…and more while he was here a few weeks ago…
