What spooky things are under your bed?

I am trying to make some progress in getting my house organized. Trust me. I am on a steep climb upward here, but I try to pick some corner to work on each week. On the list recently was the task of cleaning everything out from under my bed. Even I was shocked at the things I found, and I am not sure what it all means except that I shove a lot of weird stuff under my bed!  Are you ready for the list? I am just glad my mom is not a computer person and unless my sisters show her she will never know the horror..

Here goes:
22 pieces of art (two watercolors of mine and lots of other mixed media of my girls), a sock (I couldn't believe there was only one), three metal decorative pieces that I don't know where to hang, a roll of birthday wrapping paper, two gift bags, a crucifix (look out Dracula!), a Yahtzee game,  an Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader game (and no, I don't think I am!), a paper clip, a dust rag (hmmm), dust bunnies to go with the rag, an exercise band, a pen, my high school diploma (I am NOT kidding) and nine empty picture frames. I have to say it is embarrassing, but I feel good about tackling that particular beast.  I am not sure what I am going to do with all the art. That is an ongoing dilemma for another blogtherapy session at a later date.

I would love to hear your stories about what you have under YOUR bed!!


  1. That's funny! Don't worry - I won't tell Nonnie! As for what to do with the things under your bed, I still have room in my family art gallery for some new pieces! :)

    Also, under my bed...nothing except an ice pack that is so far under there, I can't reach it!! :)

  2. Put the art in the 9 empty pictures frames and make hanging them a day project! Good luck!
    Our beds sit directly on the floor so we can't put anything under them- huge loss of "storage and hiding when cleaning" space!

  3. Nothing under any of our beds. My husband has a thing about it. :)
