Well after a couple of hours of sorting and with the help of my 4 year old DD I was able to clear out most of the crap from the library/office and it looks great! There are still a few problem areas but overall I'm so pleased with the work that we have accomplished! It was very important for me to get the stuff off the floor so there is less worry for my 1 year old. I've decided not to do anything more until I tackle the basement, which is frightful!
I never thought that I would say this, but I really hope I don't sell anything for a couple of days as I really need to sort out the mess in the basement!
