Ugh. Just because 35 people can FIT in there does not mean they would enjoy it. The first thing I thought of was how hot it would be once all those people settled in.

Man, it's nice, but I agree with others that said the basement is no place to keep clothing. The house I grew up in had the laundry room in the basement. Our closets were small, so we kept most of our clothing hung in the laundry room. A. Our clothing always had a musty smell that was detectable as soon as we walked outside and B. basements flood. End of story.

If I don't love it, I give it away. We don't have a lot of storage space to begin with and I can't justify holding onto things I'll never use. I've even started a box of things to give to Goodwill with the presents I received this past Christmas that I don't want/need--mainly little chotchke things from co-workers or clients. I feel a little guilty (and unappreciative) about giving away new items that they cared enough to buy for me; but at least I take comfort that if someone buys the item at the thrift store, it will be appreciated.

Huh. I've heard on various online outlets that MSLO is subbing Living for Blueprint; however, I have not received Living. Instead, they refunded my subscription. That may be due to the fact that I renewed my sub., oh about 2 weeks before they announced that Blueprint was done. But so far, I haven't heard of anyone else receiving a refund.... I'm happy getting my money back. I've subscribed to Living in the past, but like deneph, I'm clearly not the target audience for Living.
