Wow this is stressful! I’ve probably said it before but my basement is way worse than I keep telling myself it is. I went down there and found a small-ish puddle of water. The first thing I did was fill up an entire garbage bag in about 5 minutes so the water could start drying up. I couldn’t get in very far but I’ll come back to that.
Then I saw a couple of buckets that I’ve been meaning to look into so I started going through those. There were some cute kid clothes in there but they smelled all musty so out they go. I couldn’t quite get to the bottom bucket so I had to pull it out and that’s where the nightmare was. More water. The biggest problem is that I don’t know if this water is the water from last night or if there’s another problem somewhere.
In the meantime, while I was moving things around, I filled up another two big garbage bags in about 20 minutes. Have you ever met a box hoarder? I have one living here and there has to be a couple hundred boxes down there. There’s empty boxes and boxes with little accessories in them everywhere. I should’ve taken some pics before I started because I’ve already made a dent down there.
Yes! You read that right! I made a dent in about an hour! It really is possible to get better at this! It’s still a mess though so I will get some before pics. My allergies are going crazy so I have to take breaks often.
