Well, we've managed to deconstruct and move a desk, buffet, stereo, and futon, plus a massive load of dvd's, knicknacks and assorted odds and ends.
All of this was transported to a storage locker today in a rented van, in preparation for the impending carpet cleaning on the morrow. It certainly is more tidy, although all of the remainders have been stuffed in closets and in un-carpeted areas just to facilitate the cleaning... so it's a kind of false tidyness.
I hope that in our new house we can try and keep the clutter down to a minimum. It's so much nicer when things are kept clutter free. Easier to clean and keep neat also. This said as I type at a desk piled eyes-high with books and papers.
