I spent the whole day moving stuff.
My husband was suggesting that we should have a clear demarcation between office supplies and supplies to USE in our office shelves. I had just moved a bunch of cookbooks INTO those shelves in order to make space in the living room…
I went upstairs and looked at the built-in shelving in the guest room. I decided that these could be used to hold a lot of books. First, I had to clean THEM out, moving my out of season shoes and purses. When those were empty, I started the big reorganization.
Since we’re eating low carb and low or no sugar now, I have a lot of cookbooks we don’t use all the time.
I looked up each one on Amazon and found several I could put up for resale there. The ones I couldn’t went into two places: the place in the foyer where we gather books we take as a fund-raiser to our local library. The ones I wanted to keep I put on the stairs.
When I finished with Amazon and the give-away groups, I lugged all the keepers upstairs and put them in the guest room bookshelves.
Then I started on all the books I’ve gathered for running a small business, plus some art and craft books. I did the same series with all of these, listing some for resale, put others in the give away pile, and the rest on the stairs to go up.
I now have all the books out of the office! Tomorrow I’ll start reorganizing the office shelves so that we can both easily find whatever we need…
I can tell you first-hand that lugging books around and up and down the stairs is great exercise!
