Re: Nesting! Decor in Rooms, Apts, houses etc

Don't tell me that, steph!

Every time we move (sadly, that's been four times in the last six years - hopefully this is the last one!), we throw out boxes and boxes of stuff that we never unpacked in the time we lived there. And yet there's still so much stuff!

So... we bought our house almost a year ago (has it been that long already ?!). And we're still unpacking (and buying stuff to help organize the stuff we haven't unpacked, yet). Will this ever end?!

I agree with you 100 percent, Jason.

Somewhat reminds me of this recent (somewhat related) story. Some parents filed a "bullying" complaint because their kids lost a football game to (mostly) second- and third-string players by more than 90 points.
