Y'all would be proud of me!

DH & I moved recently. His company offered to hire movers, but we elected to do it ourselves. They did supply a truck & some guys on actual moving day. We had been wanting to do a "clean sweep" for a while, but just weren't able to get around to it. Besides, it's hard when you have various tools in the house because of remodeling & things just seem to spill into other rooms.

We have cleared out at least a dumpster full of junk & trash. We have an entire room full of donations that are to be picked up this morning by a local charity. We haven't even touched the shed yet! I kept a few things to go to storage that I'm not sure about, but would like to at least try them in the new house before I decide. I've promised myself & DH that if they don't work there, I'll get rid of them.

Congratulations!!! Anything you decide doesn't work in the next house will be much easier to get rid of after this experience. I think dumpsters are a great way to go to really, really purge. It's amazing how much broken down or trash stuff we hang onto.

Congratulations on de-junking the new house! I'm impressed that you were able to focus after the move and clean-sweep after!
