A few weekend ago, I spent half the day cleaning out the basement pantry.
The next weekend, I cleaned out what was supposed to be the basement 'living space,' but had turned into a hold-all for all the junk we didn't know what to do with.
We now have a very large pile of 'stuff' to yard sale next summer. PLUS, for the kids for Christmas this year, we're hoping to turn the basement into a 'den,' or, as I keep saying, a playroom by day and teen cave by night.
We're trying to figure out how to be creative enough to make it a fun playroom for Buddy, but also a place where Chuck won't be embarrassed to take her friends, since it is a room for them both, and there's an 11 year age difference there.
Anyone have any suggestions?
