Well it has taken me some time working a little at a time but I am happy with what has been achieved.
We have shredded heaps of old documents, thrown into the recycle bin several boxes of old magazines, thrown out so much junk, given away stuff and still have several more boxes of stuff to donate to goodwill.
I have repacked the area - somewhat neater and I have put all my Christmas AND Halloween decorations in there. It's not perfect but it IS a storage area.
Here are some pictures.
