|Our Current View -- when the cows escape :-).|
Our plan was to make a list of must haves, give it to an agent and if they found a house with all the stipulations we would seriously consider it (the list, including a mother in law quarters, would make it quite unique and hard to find). Before we got the list made my oldest daughter, Elizabeth, and I saw a house for sale just inside the city limits but had no idea what it offered. When we got home I found the listing online and my jaw dropped--it had everything we had discussed, and a few things we would love but would not have listed.
We went the next day to look it over--it is not perfect by any means, but for my mom and the church groups it is amazing. The location is great for saving us driving time and tho it is in a neighborhood and on a main road it is unusually private--just what we wanted after being used to our country location. One of the discussions taking place while looking it over was where would I keep my shoe boxes and shoe box stockpile--filling a hundred or more boxes can take quite a bit of room. Apparently having a shoe box storage space was on my daughter's mind, because she shared this dream she had after looking at the house. We had also been planning how to make the driveway better suitable to park many cars for the connection group times so apparently Elizabeth had both of those things on her mind when she went to sleep for in the morning she shared the following dream.

So if you are new to shoe box stockpiling be prepared for it to be a big part of your life--day and night. If you have been shoe boxing for a while now, have you ever had dreams about it? Do you have stories to tell of getting creative in your storage methods?
