Step Two: Basement Clean-up '09

Go to Walshizz and buy as many bins as you think you can possibly get in and out of your car without hurting yourself. Don't forget the lids.

Also, don't be offended when the Walshizz cashier lady checks in between each and every bin to make sure you haven't tucked some valuable Walshizz products in between the stacked bins. She has to do that. It's part of her training. So she says. Don't say out loud that you think that probably gives more people the idea to do that than prevents it from happening. Sam Walton and crew take shoplifting very srsly.

Take bins home and let them sit for at least a week before moving on to Step 3.


Disclaimer: I have an unnatural love of bins. They seem to be my answer for everything... "Where does this go? Put it in a bin!" "I'm sick of looking at this. Put it in a bin!" "My kid is being naughty. Put him in a bin!" Bins are good. Bins are true.

I have done this a few times too and I believe they really do clean your house magically.

My goal is that when I move I just load up all my bins and...voilá!

I would divorce my husband and marry a bin if it were at all possible.

Holy crap Landee! I can't believe the stuff I've missed out on in the past 2ish weeks. The basement! Your new frenemy!
My advise: Christy is coming sometime in July. Put her to work on your bins. The two of you are Bin-Mastas.
You have to admit tho there is a certain freedom with an out of control basement. Anything goes down there.

We have so many bins down in our crawl space that when the big earthquake comes and destroys the foundation, our house will still be supported by all our crap.

Love, Love, Love all plastic bins in all shapes, sizes and colors.

I always have so much to comment about your posts but then I see Solidgold's picture and can't really think of anything else to say. I love her picture. Would it be creepy of me to have that as my wallpaper on my desktop?
