Slowly but slowly (as in not starting until 8 PM), I am making headway in the basement room. Our contractor came today and told us he would start as soon as it was empty! Talk about initiative.
You know it looks worse before it looks better, right? The only main difference between the first picture and the second is that 3 thirteen-gallon bags of discarded clothes are gone as well as everything on my sewing table.

I have too much stuff. I know this, but it's so hard to let things go! It's the result of years and years of having 8 children, home schooling, sewing, quilting, READING, etc., etc.
We are moving furniture around and making places for things that aren't in their usual location so we can begin the renovations downstairs in what is presently my sewing room. The whole sewing room needs to be packed up before we can start that. It will be months before it will be unpacked. The most logical solution was to move my L-shaped sewing desk into my bedroom and my quilt frame into the living room.
Naturally, there are already things where these things needed to be moved to. My living room desk came into the bedroom (it only sports one very shallow drawer, so I gave up 3 large drawers), my bedside table held 3 fabric baskets (the large ones about 10" x 11" x 11"), and my son's desk was also moved out of the living room.
So I spent much time this afternoon sorting through each and every item in my bedroom in the areas that needed to be cleared out.
Here are the after pictures, as tragic as they look:
