    Two households..ONE house!!!!!

    Some of you have come to know The Lovely Michelle personally via the ScooterPaloozas over the few years...and thousands have seen her lovely face on the webpages for those events. Well..she and I about to co-habitate begining this sunday and I am trying desperately to whittle down stuff...cram stuff..re-arrange stuff...you get the idea!

    How did YOU do it..when it came to this point? She and I have been working the house thing for over a month and I am feeling lost and a wee bit overwhelmed. Not due to her coming into the house..that is MORE than welcome..but the daunting task of making shrinkage happen.

    Any suggestions?

    As with most couples' decisions, her stuff gets priority.

    Other than the Scootplex, all your stuff goes to Goodwill. [​IMG]

    I agree with Mike, I can't help but think of George in that Seinfeld episode whenever I hear shrinkage.

    I could use some stuff, [​IMG] got any spare subwoofers? My old M&K is on the fritz, the driver seems shot as it crackles when anything loud goes on and there is now a distinct hum that wasn't there before...

    One can always bury it in the backyard too, as long as it doesn't attract the resident NJ bears. [​IMG]

    Make sure you have dibs on at least one room in the house and the garage. I have one room that can be as messy as I want, decorated as I want, and contains all "my stuff" she only enters to use the computer and roll her eyes.

    She can decorate all the other rooms and I agreed to keep them neat and tidy. My only demand was that we not have a "cushy" toilet seat and none of those tank topper rug things either.

    Got any friends with kids graduating college? Give 'em the oldest couch and mattress you've got, they'll need it for their appartment.

    Decorating isn't an issue...she is an interior designer and we spit the house. She has carte blanche with the entire upstairs except the boy's rooms...unless thay ask her for some guidance. And I have the entire basement..ScootPlex and Green Room.

    She also has total domain over the yards...EXCEPT for the big tent and the Sabrett cart.

    The biggest thing is creating space.

    Well, have you ever considered mini-storage? Start using it as a temp space, and anything that goes in and has not come out in 6 months is donated / sold...

    Keep good thoughts!

    I recommend holding an auction / garage sale the same day as Scooterpalooza 2003. I will bring my checkbook, how much for the cheapest of your projectors?
