Hoarders: Buried Alive

Technically, I guess that is true.  I have been reorganizing my “WHOLE HOUSE” due to that marathon of Hoarders: Buried Alive . . . and pinterest has some great organizing ideas.

Like this one!

My variation is a little different, but pinterest is for IDEAS not to duplicate the photos we see. 

So over the years, it is a well-known fact at our house that when you rearrange wires, you put the unused ones in the “cord box” that is in the downstairs closet. 

AND  . . . after years of this practice, this is what you get!

Now.  Thanks to Hoarders: Buried Alive, all the outdated unused cords are trash!  Thanks to pinterest, the ones we are keeping are manageable.  Nicely tucked into repurposed CD holders or zip-tied into neat little rolls.

The office is 75% finished as of this weekend!  Hooray!  I’ll post pictures when it is complete.  All the old computer equipment, phone charges etc. that were not being used, are trashed!  The only thing that remains is the stuff we use or will use soon.  Very productive Saturday morning.
