Clutter Emergency!

Clutter Emergency!

So I have this dresser/vanity/nightstand set that is pretty nice, deco-era, waterfall style. At the time of our most recent move, we decided not to bring the vanity from the set with us. A month or two ago, I decided not to use the nightstand any more.

I put them on Craigslist, and said that I might be persuaded to let go of the dresser, too, for the right price - although it is in use right now.

So someone IS interested, BUT they're mostly interested in the dresser, and wouldn't want the other pieces without it. I told Kaden, and he was like "Um, but, we're using the dresser."

IS THIS MY SIGN TO LET GO OF THE DRESSER? IF I GET RID OF THE DRESSER, WOULD I HAVE TO GET ANOTHER ONE, NEGATING "the best minimalist solution is the one you already have?"

I know only I know the answer to these questions...but any other opinions would be faaaabulous.

Do you have other places to put the stuff in the dresser? You can use fabric bins/baskets for socks and underwear, t-shirts and pjs can be folded on a shelf or hung in a closet. If you don't have other options readily available, then I would say keep the dresser. Start to think creatively about any storage options you might already have around the house (vintage suitcases, hatboxes, baskets, empty drawers in other furniture). You may be able to find a place for almost everything in the dresser but just need one small bin for socks (for example), so sell the dresser and buy the bin for $5 and I'm sure it would be worth the trade-off. Good luck on making a decision. I know how hard it is to deal with those kinds of things.
