Time to re-organize!

When we moved into our new house the basement was completely empty. Just a cement floor and an unfinished roof. No walls, toilets, lights or outlets! Except for this room. This BADLY planned room:

Furnace side

Storage side

This is my Furnace/Storage room.

The room has two doors, one to the furnace side, and one for the storage side. Smack in the middle of the room is the furnace/water heater combo. The combo makes it impossible to go from one side to the other inside the room, they are as good as a wall.

The problem is, there is NO room to get around in the storage part of the room becuase of all the clutter - and becuase the stairs take up a portion of that side of the room.

This weekends chore is to clean out those rooms, there could be so much more done with them if we only organized them properly! The first thing to happen is to move the bookshelves (The wood thing you see in the left side of the "Storage side" picture) from the storage part of the room to the furnace part of the room. I'm not sure what I will put on the bookshelves, but trust me, our house has enough crap that it will fill up quickly!

Then I need to re organize the two dressers that are in the storage room. I keep the boys summer/winter clothes in those dressers depending on the seasons and as you can see, they need some organization!
