I have to confess there were a few days this week where I was very heavy of heart, and feeling very overwhelmed and burdened down by the sheer amount of stuff. My new dollshouse room became increasingly trashed with stuff piled everywhere waiting for homes or waiting to be grouped like with like. Plus there were some very sad moments as I unpacked my friend's stash and recognised many projects we had done side by side at our former dollshouse club, or gifts that I had given her or she had given to me.
But I persevered, and DH helped by taking moutains of bubblewrap, tissue paper and cardboard to the recycling station. Eventually the last box and house was unpacked and the pipeline of bits and pieces needing to be grouped came to an end. Then I could start looking at how much I had of each type, and how that could be stored. I went out to a bargain store called QD and picked up five big cereal containers which (with lids discarded) made great containers for the strip wood, mouldings, balsa, sheet wood, and round sticks. I also got some plastic shoe boxes and big tupperwares. And I've ordered some plastic underbed boxes online which will fit into the cupboards for storing excess furniture.
