The last few days I have been going through "stuff" in my house to put in a huge garage sale I am planning. With the packing up and cleaning of my siblings homes after they have passed away. I have come to the conclusion that all the things we acquire, in the end are just things that get thrown out. Oh some things go to other family members but in the end the items will still get thrown out. Soooo I am on a mission to lighten up and get rid of things I have not seen or touched in the last year. I went through the millions of beading magazines I have sitting on book shelves and gave them all away. I use to love a nice book shelf with all of my beading books and of course Steven King, however, the books have been read years ago and now they are just dust collectors. I have collected glass pieces, little nik naky things that I have enjoyed but now is time to get rid of. In fact I would never have all of these things. I would love a minimalist home........ buuuutttttttttttt I live with Mike. He saves everything. I think he would be a hoarder if I allowed it. Now when I say he keeps everything I am not kidding. Last year my old trusty coffee maker gave in. I bought a new one and asked Mike to throw the old one away. ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?? I found that old coffee maker in the shed yesterday along with the broken plastic canister that goes to my carpet cleaner!!!! What the heck would anyone do with those things? OMG!!! So you see what I am up against. So today I will start in on the art room. Ohhh yessss I am going through everything!!!! Can't wait to start on Mike's spare room. Hee hee hee
Have a great day everyone!
