Well, I guess the rest of you guys have better things to do on the 4th of July than cean, declutter, and organize. :) But here's my update anyway! :)

The room is empty! (Well, just about.) Most of the stuff was *not* trash, just seasonal items that needed to be put away. It was so dusty in there, too. I worked for about 2 1/2 straight hours. Corey and Drew helped carry stuff to the attic and also vacuumed their room and their baby brother's room while we were up there. Since this room is right next to the bathroom, I also got the bathroom totally clean during this time with the kids helping.

Left in the room: There is a closet-esque sorta thing. It will be a walk-in, but it's not too big and it's on the narrow side. All of my Tupperware is in there. I sell Tupperware and I have quite a bit. (Stuff to show, stuff to give as prizes, stuff I can sell, stuff that I got for free that I don't have room for in my kitchen, etc.) Also, there is a 5 shelf thing that was in this room when we bought the house. I cleared everything off of it and put the stuff away except for the top shelf which has the stuff Jeff is using (or not using as the case may be) to strip the paint in the room. It's a rather useful shelf, but not pretty. I'm not really sure what I will do with it if the room ever gets done, but it's staying for now.

There was one bag of trash, and probably about 20 boxes that needed to go up. The Christmas ornaments and winter clothes are all safely in the attic. WOO!
