These past few days I've finally started attacking what is soon to be the baby's room. Currently, the room has multiple functions such as study/dressing room/wardrobe/shoe cupboard and general junk-that's-got-nowhere-else-to-go room. It's by far my least favourite room in the house but after this magical transformation (fingers crossed), I'm hoping it will soon become my most favourite room. I mean, how can it not be, my little baby is going to live in there ;)
First problem is, there's just so much stuff, also known as crap that I've uncovered. It's not particularly useful or functional or fun crap, just more that run-of-the-mill crap that you can't really throw out because at some point it might serve some form of useful purpose. Mostly, it consists of paperwork, lots of paperwork; research papers from my masters, investment reports of Phil's, magazine tear-outs about HK, paperwork from some freelance jobs, my interiors scrapbook....you get the drift. My second problem? What the hell to do with it all. The entire room needs to be cleared out, so all the stuff is going to have to live in the spare bedroom. It's just we don't have any storage in there at the moment and I'm at a bit of a loss as to where to put everything!
Part of me thinks, get vicious. Think rubbish bin central. But inevitably I throw out important things without realising it, like that time Phil's birth certificate accidentally went missing....ooops. The other part thinks Ikea. But that scares me equally as much....
I was actually hoping I might be able to get some advice from all you mums out there who have no doubt done all this before! Have you got any kick-ass storage solutions for me? How do you store all your paperwork? Know any websites with pretty photos that might give me some inspiration??
Yours in anticipation ;)
