"I had a great life. But then my mom got offered tenure at Northwestern University. So it was 'Good-bye, Africa,' and 'Hello, high school.'"
Since the Great Uncluttering Endeavor began back in the spring, our family has come a long way. We've hosted two yardsales, listed tons of shit on Craigslist, and taken huge totes full of unwanted (but useful!) crapola to Goodwill. For some perspective, this is what our living room looked like before our first yardsale:

And this is what it looks like today:
|Whoo-hoo! Click to enlarge.|
So it's coming along. There is still plenty of clutter in our house and entire rooms that need to be sorted and cleaned, but our progress in just a few months has been really heartening for me. I feel like we might actually be ready to put this place on the market in eight months.
OMG...EIGHT months...shit just got REAL, y'all.
