urgh! It's full of storage boxes and general crap.
we have a new wooden bed delivered that it lower than our current metal framed bed. So before we build it I need to sort out some of the crap and get rid of it as the current storage boxes are now too tall. Some of it is extra toiletries and hair stylers etc, a box of wedding mementoes, cards from when Luke was in hospital and his first birthday. I am such a hoarder and don't want to get rid of anything.

Oh I love a good sort out! You'll be happy once it's done and your new bed is up.
I have 3 suitcases, 2 storage boxes and a box of paperwork under my bed. Not to mention numerous other pieces of crap! I'm going to sort it out this weekend I think. Needs doing.

Have you got an attic Carole you could put the cards etc in. I struggle with somewhere to put toiletries too. Our bed has got drawers in but are full of towels and bedding. I've actually just bought a faux leather ottoman to put bedding etc in as was fed up of squashing stuff into the drawers and we've got plenty of space in our bedroom just not enough storage!
I agree though, a good sort out makes you feel good!

I had to do this the other year as we changed our bed and the new one doesn't have any storage space under it at all.
I had to harden my heart to some bits but decided that no-one would care about things to do with our wedding planning - and as I don't look at them what was the point in hanging on to them. There was an awful lot of rubbish under there.
Once you get going it will be OK. I do love a good clear out when I'm feel ruthless.

Frankie- we do have a loft but it's not useable. It's a very low roof line and only space is taken up with insulation, plus we've had issues with damp/condensation. we have a cupboard on the landing but that is full too.... It's a disease hoarding!
cedar- I think I might have to do that with my wedding planning stuff. I'm such a sucker for wasting time and looking at stuff one last time before I throw it.

Seriously what's in it? What can be of any use in that box? I'm literally sat open mouthed...
