The trouble with trying to overhaul your living space so it looks nice and has better furniture and, possibly, has flat surfaces available somewhere is the inevitable intermediate stage wherein you are surrounded by piles of everything you own and, at least in my case, start seriously questioning your life choices. I mean, did I really need to own all the comic books ever? I couldn't have collected, I don't know, bottlecaps instead? I bet bottlecap collections are restful. And don't require shelving.

As someone who is flying across the country in a month with the specific goal of starting to divest of roughly 75 comic boxes, I can say, with all sincerity, that I feel your pain.

I'm still at the stage of "more furniture = less cluttered looking, how does that work?!"

Yes. I recently had to get out stuff out of one of my rooms to change my desk, so both my other room and my kitchen was stacked with piles of boxes (many of them comics of course). In the process I decided to reorganize the boxes some, so they wouldn't just be the naturally evolving mostly chronological dumps that happen when I start a new box without reboxing oodles of old ones, but be more based on series. It was total chaos and piles for days.

I need to start paring down my collection as well. My only consolation is that DC has made it a pretty easy decision for me as to what I'm going to get rid of with how they've changed everything around.

I hate that intermediate stage. It always make me wonder if the renovation plan is worth it.

Shelves would be nice! I would like some more of those! Maybe after the next move

As it is, everything's in boxes, and since the last couple moves and going back to school, they're not even in organized boxes.

I'd wish for bottlecaps but I suspect this problem happens eventually with ANYTHING.
