It’s time for another round of ” The Ugly Truths.” Basically, if you have no idea what I’m talking about it, it’s when I spill the beans on the not-so pretty or the real behind what you see. For example, check out my go-to way of keeping plants alive to get an idea; or, my trick for having beautiful baseboards. You get the idea. Today, it’s all about The Ugly Truths :: Clutter Control.
Get ready to feel better about yourself.

I would hate for you to think that the playroom/office was the only place that needed some love. To be quite frank, I think every space in our house could use this type of love.
Since January, I have taken 4 SUV loads (mainly just the back of the SUV) to the donation center. Can you believe that? Crazy beans.
Actually, the crazier part is that I probably have 4 more loads to go (JUST FROM THE BASEMENT). Let me show you our dirty little secret, a.k.a. “the crap-filled dungeon” (a.k.a. the basement). Oh, and stick around because I’ll tell you why I’m sharing the basement with you in just a bit!
*Oh, and just so you know, I’m super embarrassed to share these, but I really am committed to sharing the good, the bad and the ugly. So, be kind in your comments. =)
As you open the door to the basement, you see this:
Usually the ping pong table is put together and you can usually play it from both sides. There may be crap underneath it but, usually, it’s accessible. We had to move it a bit to clear out a bed, headboard, etc.
