Roundup and Link Love – Garage Sale 2008 Edition


How in the world did we ever accumulate so much STUFF? It blows my mind. Back when my wife and I purchased our first home, I can remember the basement garage looking so barren. It actually had an echo! Our walk-in attic was HUGE. Those two areas were larger than any apartment we had ever rented yet, by the time we sold that home, the garage was overloaded, you couldn’t walk into the attic, and we had to give away two 16 foot trailers full of stuff because we couldn’t get everything into the moving van. We didn’t even take our living room furniture, my son’s bed, or my daughter’s entire bedroom suit with us. We bought new after we were moved.

Today, I think it would take a 48 foot moving van to get us out of our new house. The kicker is: 95% of this STUFF isn’t even used or needed and probably wouldn’t be missed. So, we’re selling it! Woo Hoo! What doesn’t sell is getting donated and I’ll take that tax write-off thank you very much.

Here are some great articles on reducing clutter from the Life Skills Network:
