When Eric and I got married, and I moved into this house, he told me I had a lot of misc., which is so true.
I've been labeling quite a few boxes lately, trying to communicate some semblance of what each one contains and where it should go. I'm finding as I go along that some items are harder to consolidate than others because I have a lot of random pieces that make categorizing difficult. I even labeled one box "Carrie's Cache of Chaos" and have been filling it with items that I just can't generalize elsewhere. What, for example, should I do with my U.S. quarter map? I've also kept the canning jars filled with dried lavendar that we used in our wedding--what to do with those?! Those two examples are just the beginning!
I am parting with a lot of items as we move, but if I continue in my misc.-y ways, I'm sure I'll be writing "Carrie's Cache of Chaos Part 2" on a box very soon . . .
