What did I get myself into?

Decided it was time to tackle that guest room closet—doesn’t look too bad overall, right?

Wrong. It is awful. Hidden in boxes you can’t see are agonizingly sentimental objects that I have no use for. In one sense that’s OK, because I don’t have to get rid of all the stuff, just give it a more appropriate home. But in another sense, if I am going to be touching these items for the first time in nine years—and I may not touch them again for nine years after this—shouldn’t I take this opportunity to give some of it…a more final resting place?

The worst part is, when this is done, I’m really not going to have a lot to show for it. It’s not like the kitchen, where the payoff is increased ease of use multiple times per day. This is going to hurt.
