Procrastinating! . . The Basement Clean-up

because I have been putting off cleaning this basement for, oh I'd say, a couple years at least. It just keeps getting more cluttered as I keep bringing more "stuff" down there that I don't know what to do with. I had to post the before pictures to join and I have till Oct. 20th to get this project done! I think a deadline will help me. : ))

OK, now don't get scared! My house is 152 years old so my basement is a cellar not a neat basement with walls of cement bricks. Under that waterproofing vinyl stuff on the walls are huge boulders holding my house up. I have french drains under my cement floor now so I no longer have water problems when it rains! (A real blessing!!) Yes, this is where I have to do laundry! If I ever moved, I'd wish for a first floor laundry room!
See that shelving over there? If I clear this all out, I could have a pantry down here! I already have a little refrigerator and extra freezer down here. There's actually another room down there too. It has the oil tank and boiler in it so I can't put much in there.
So, I have till the 20th of October when I have to show the after pictures or get drummed out of the Procrastinator's Party!! I have some serious throwing out to do!!
Good Luck to all the participants with all their projects.
