With five kids off on their own I actually had a spare room. After raising seven kids in a three bedroom house this is sort of amazing. S~ preferred to stay downstairs (where she has half the basement as hers). With my DH's encouragement I took over the smallest bedroom and converted it into my business office/workroom. I bought a desk and chair at the thrift store and reassigned the wire shelving to myself. The boxes are all full of soap. The chemicals are on the white shelving. I call this my meth lab. It is really wonderful having a place to keep all this stuff. It almost feels like a real business.
